For this BBQ Chicken Cheese Quesadilla recipe, I ravaged and shredded four chicken drumsticks that were used to make soup the night before.
Alternatively, feel free to cook some chicken breasts in boiling water for 15 minutes and shred them into small pieces. Or for convenience sake, buy a roast chicken and shred some meat for this easy BBQ Chicken Cheese Quesadilla recipe.
Add in whatever cheese and sauce you prefer and make it perfect for your family.
