Ingredients

  • ¾ cup shredded chicken *(see note below)
  • ¼ cup barbecue sauce (any kind)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • ¼ red onion thinly sliced

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the chicken and barbecue sauce. Mix well. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
  • Place one tortilla in middle of pan. Top with ¼ cup shredded cheese. Spread chicken in an even layer on top of cheese, leaving about a ½ inch border around the tortilla.
  • Top with onion, followed by rest of cheese. Place second tortilla shell on top of chicken mixture and lightly press down.
  • Heat tortilla on both sides, about 3-4 minutes, or until shell turns golden brown and cheese starts to melt. Remove from pan and cut into four slices. Serve immediately.

Notes

*Chicken: I used the shredded rotisserie chicken that you can find near the deli section of your grocery store.
