BBQ Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas
1 1/2 lbs chicken tenderloins
2-3 Tbsp barbeque sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
1/2 Fresh Pineapple cut into long strips (I am sure you could use canned but if you use canned I would use the rings)
2 cups shredded cheese (I used Monterey Jack, but you can use the Mexican blend they sell)
*optional add-ins: scallions, jalapeno
Coat chicken in BBQ sauce. You can either grill your chicken or bake it. (I baked mine.) While chicken is cooking, cut up your pineapple. Grill pineapple to get nice brown grill marks. Then cut pineapple into small chunks. Once chicken is cooked, cut it into small pieces. Get grill pan nice and hot and place a tortilla on pan, layer cheese, pineapple, chicken and a drizzle of BBQ sauce and top with a little more cheese and top tortilla. Once the bottom is browned and cheese has melted, flip and grill other side. When both sides are done, cut and enjoy! You can top with salsa, sour cream, or guacamole.
