1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/3 c. barbecue sauce
1/3 c. tomato, chopped
1/4 c. onion, chopped
1/4 c. fresh cilantro, chopped
4 flour tortillas, burrito size
1/2 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded
Place chicken breast on a microwave-safe plate. Cover and microwave on high for 4-5 minute or until fully cooked. Using two forks, shred the chicken breast. Mix in barbecue sauce. In a separate bowl, combine tomatoes, onion and cilantro. Place two tortillas on a baking sheet. Spread half the chicken on each tortilla. Top with tomato mixture then with cheese. Place the other tortilla on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until cheese melts and tortillas are crispy. Cut in fourths and serve.

Tips: These quesadillas were a nice change from the original and easy to put together. If you have never tried this method for making shredded chicken it is super easy and quick. Just use one fork to hold the chicken and rake it against the grain with the other. You could also cut out a step by choosing to use canned chicken. I did pick out the onions for my daughter or just make part of one quesadilla without the ingredients your kids don't like. I also shared this recipe at Life as MOM's Recipe Swap & Momtrends' Friday Food.
