{Recipe} BBQ Chicken, Apple, Bacon & Cheddar Quesadillas

One of my favorite easy meals to make is BBQ Chicken Pizza.  But, since the boy and I are trying to lost weight, we've been trying to make our favorite recipes a little healthier.  While the recipe I'm about to share with you isn't exactly the healthiest, we have replaced pizza dough with tortillas and added fruit so that we are consuming less break while eating more fruit.  The recipe below is a printable, just right click and save to your computer!

There are many ways to make this recipe even healthier.  You could use a low-calorie cheese in place of the cheddar or turkey bacon in place of the regular bacon.  Additionally, you could use a BBQ rub in place of the sauce, but be advised that the quesadilla will be much more dry.  For a twist on this recipe, substitute the apple for fresh peaches or pears or squeeze a little fresh lime juice on the finished product.  I promise all of these variants are extremely good as well!



  1. I am a BBQ chicken addict and this recipe sounds fabulous! I'm adding to next week's meal plan =)

  2. Oh wow, what a great compliment! Thank you so much!! I made them again a few nights ago....they're just so good! I loves me some BBQ sauce & these are just so YUM!!

  3. That looks like a really interesting recipe. I'm going to run this by my daughter, who does the more healthy cooking in our house.


I love comments! Type away.... :)
