Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas

These are easy and awesome!!

Grilled Chicken & Pineapple Quesadillas

Ingredients:
8 flour tortillas
Butter or Margarine
2 cups grilled pineapple, sliced
3 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper, to taste
Cajun spice, to taste (I used "Slap ya Mama" brand)
3 cups Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1 whole jalapeno, seeded & sliced (I didn't use this because I had a horrible reaction to cutting jalapeno one time)
Cilantro
3 Tablespoons barbecue sauce

Directions:
Grill pineapple: Cut wedges, stick on skewers, and grill over low heat. Cut into slices.

Pound chicken between 2 pieces of plastic wrap with a mallet to flatten into a uniform thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and Cajun spice. Drizzle olive oil on a grill pan and grill on both sides until done, brushing with barbecue sauce. Set aside and slice into very thin slices.

Warm griddle over medium heat and melt butter in the pan. Slightly warm and toast tortillas on both sides, then remove from griddle and set aside.

To assemble, sprinkle four browned tortillas with grated Monterey Jack. Arrange chicken slices evenly over the surface. Add pineapple slices and jalapeno slices, and sprinkle with cilantro. If desired, drizzle extra barbecue sauce over the top. Add second browned tortilla on top of each one. You will have four complete quesadillas at this point.

Add to oven to warm, or back to skillet to warm, until cheese is melted. Cut each quesadilla into wedges.
