I enjoy fine dining just as much as the next guy, but sometimes you just want to settle down, lay low, and enjoy a hearty snack attack. Enter the barbecue chicken quesadilla: a righteous, no frills handheld delight.

Jay D's Barbecue Chicken Quesadillas
Makes 4 servings

8 ounces cooked chicken, shredded (use a rotisserie chicken from the store if you're fancy)

4 (12 in) flour tortillas

12 ounces shredded Monterey jack cheese

4 ounces Jay D's Louisiana Barbecue Sauce

1 red onion, thinly sliced, divided into 4 portions

Layer half of each tortilla with 2 ounces of chicken, 1 portion of red onion, 4 ounces of Monterey jack cheese, and 1 oz. of Jay D’s Louisiana Barbecue sauce. Fold tortilla in half. Heat a large sauté pan over high heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and lower the heat to medium. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Slice into 4 pieces and garnish with sliced green onions. Serve with Jay D’s BBQ Aioli.
