Ingredients:  
8 whole Flour Tortillas
Butter or margarine
2 C. grilled Pineapple - sliced
3 whole boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts
3 C. Monterey Jack Cheese - grated
1 whole Jalapeno - sliced
3 T. Barbecue Sauce
Salt - to taste
Pepper - to taste
Cilantro - to taste

Directions:
Directions:
To grill pineapple: peel pineapple and cut into wedges. Stick on skewers and grill over low heat. Cut into slices.

Chicken breasts need to be pounded to flatten to uniform thickness. To pound chicken, place inside a Ziploc bag and pound with a mallet or large can.

Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt, pepper and any other seasons you like (Cajun spice, cumin/cayenne, etc.) Drizzle olive oil on a grill pan and grill on both sides until done, brushing with barbecue sauce. Slice into very thin slices and set aside.

Place butter on griddle and warm until butter sizzles. Slightly warm and toast tortillas on both sides, then remove from griddle and set aside.

To assemble, sprinkle four browned tortillas with the grated cheese. Arrange chicken, pineapple, and jalapeno slices evenly over the surface of each tortilla. Sprinkle on cilantro and, if desired, drizzle with extra barbecue sauce. Add second browned tortilla on top of each one. You'll have four completed quesadillas. Place back on griddle to warm, until cheese is melted. Cut each quesadilla into pieces. Serve with sour cream, pico de gallo, and lime wedges.
