Hungry Girl’s BBQ Chicken Quesadilla

This easy assembly-style dinner from TV host, author and "foodologist" Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien uses high-fiber, low-carb tortillas. Instead of fattening BBQ sauce and sour cream, this recipe substitutes a bit of BBQ sauce with a cheese wedge, which cuts the calories of the original dish in half!

  • 1 tbsp barbeque sauce
  • 1 Swiss cheese
  • 1 tortilla
  • 2 oz chicken breast
  • 1 tbsp black beans
  • 1 tbsp corn kernels
  • 2 tbsp Mexican-blend cheese
  • 1 tbsp scallions


In a small bowl, mix BBQ sauce with cheese wedge until blended. Lay tortilla flat and spread BBQ-cheese mixture on one half. Top mixture with remaining ingredients. Spray a grill or grill pan with nonstick spray and bring to medium-high heat. Lay the half-loaded tortilla on the grill/grill pan, and cook for 2 minutes. Using a spatula, fold the bare half of the tortilla over the filling and press lightly to seal. Carefully flip and cook until crispy, about 3 minutes. Slice into wedges and eat up!
