What to served with BBQ Chicken?

DSC_0012BBQ Chicken Quesadillas are fast, filling, and absolutely delicious. My husband’s favorite meal!

Oh my gosh, I have to tell you about the BBQ Chicken Quesadillas I made for dinner! These quesadillas hold a unique power at my house. A power strong enough to make my husband weed whack the entire yard, even though he hates it more than anything.

Powerful enough to make him complete his weekend “honey-do” list in record time.

Powerful enough to re-pave the driveway, as he said me he would do, if I would only make these quesadillas for him! For some reason, my man is 100%, head-over-heels, nuts for this dish!

They’re incredibly simple to make, too. All you do is cook a soft tortilla with sharp cheddar cheese, shredded chicken breast mixed with BBQ sauce and…


the secret ingredient – caramelized onions!

You may think you don’t like caramelized onions – but I promise, you do! All you do is heat a couple teaspoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 small vidalia onion, sliced 1/8 inch thick, and sauté until the onions get more,

and more…

and more golden brown, stirring every minute or so.

The entire process took about 15 minutes, and every 2 or 3 minutes, I turned the heat down little by little. By the time the heat was around a 4, the onions looked like the picture below.

At this point, I sprinkled them with a little salt and a 1/2 teaspoon sugar and continued to caramelize until the heat had been turned down to about a 3.


The sugar created a chewy, sweet crust,

and they ended up tasting SO AMAZING!

Like a cross between a fried onion ring and sweet, chewy dried fruit! The low and slow heat + the tiny bit of sugar gave this naturally sweet Vidalia onion a taste that was out of this world.

They’re the secret ingredient that will make everything taste better.

BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

Serves 2

1 sweet onion, sliced thin
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded
1/4 – 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
2 flour tortillas
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat then add onions. Cook, stirring often, until golden brown and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Add desired amount of BBQ sauce to chicken in a bowl then stir to coat and set aside.
  2. Spray same skillet lightly with non-stick spray. Place a tortilla inside the skillet then sprinkle half with 1/4 cup cheese. Add half the chicken and half the caramelized onions then another 1/4 cup cheese on top, and fold the tortilla over. Cook for 3-4 minutes a side, or until golden brown, then repeat with remaining tortilla and ingredients. Let quesadillas cool for 2-3 minutes then cut into wedges and serve.
