Sweet – Spicy Honey BBQ Chicken Quesadillas


This sweet & spicy dish hits the spot! I was craving both BBQ & Tacos, after contemplating on which meal I wanted to have, I figured why not combined them both?! Why not saute up some diced chicken breast with my favorite seasons & smother the chicken in a sweet – spicy honey BBQ sauce & cheeses. But the dish did not go as planned! Do things in life ever go as planned? NO! situations in life turn out either better or worse. But, thank the Most high this situation turned out BETTER! This dish was suppose to be Tacos but turned out as quesadillas. I was not complaining! & You will not complain as well once you get your lips wrapped around these sweet -spicy quesadillas!
