Instructions for cooking the Grilled Chicken Quesadilla

·         Place the chicken on a plate, and sprinkle with salt, pepper and chilli power. Once it is spread evenly, add the barbeque sauce for seasoning on both sides. Let it marinate for 15 minutes.
·         Heat grill for medium-high heat
·         Lightly oil the grill grate. Place chicken on grill, and cook for 10 minutes per side, or until juices run clear.
·         Remove chicken from grill, and cut into bite-size pieces.
·         In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; fry onion, mushrooms, green pepper, olives, corn, chili powder, salt and pepper until liquid is evaporated, about 8 minutes. Scrape into bowl.
·         Place tortillas on the grill, and sprinkle with a thin layer of cheese, chicken, onion, mushrooms, olives, and chilies. Top with another tortilla, and grill until brown and crispy on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cut into wedges to serve.
·         If you do not want to grill the quesadillas, follow the same steps and instead of grilling bake the filled tortillas in the oven at 400°F (200°C), turning once, until golden and cheese is melted, for 20 minutes. You may cut them into halves or quarters or just eat the whole thing at once. (Good Luck)
