Texas Chicken Quesadillas

I have seen variations of these recipe floating around online, so I decided to just wing it and use what we like. These are SO good! The honey/bbq/carmelized onion taste is just heaven.
mmm.

Ingredients (for two quesadilla halves)

* 2 10-inch flour tortillas
* 3/4 lb boneless skinless chicken tenders (or chicken breast cut into little strips)
* 1/2 cup shredded cheese (we used a monterey jack blend)
* BBQ marinade (we used BWW's Honey BBQ sauce)
* White onion, sliced into rings
* EVOO

Directions

1. Marinate chicken in BBQ sauce for a couple hours.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. Bake chicken tenders in oven until cooked through, about 20 min.
4. While the chicken is cooking, heat 1 tbsp oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Slowly cook and stir until onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
5. Put cheese, chicken, and onions into each of the tortillas, only using one half of the tortilla.
6. Fold over and place tortillas in quesadilla maker. Cook until golden brown.
7. Cut into triangles and serve with sour cream or ranch.

I made these recently and added honey to my onions as they sauted. This is a great recipe!
