To each gallon-size plastic freezer baggie, add the following ingredients:

  • Half of the chicken pieces into each bag
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce

Remove as much air as possible and seal. Add label to baggie and freeze.

Freeze & Thaw Instructions

Put baggie in the freezer and freeze up to 6 months in fridge freezer or 12 months in a deep freezer. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or a warm bowl of water for about 20 minutes, before transferring to the skillet to cook the chicken, and then make the quesadillas.

Special notes

Shredded cheese and tortillas freeze well, so keep them in their bags in the freezer until it’s time to make these quesadillas.

Dairy-Free Modifications

Unfortunately, there’s not a great dairy-free option for quesadillas.

Gluten-Free Modifications

Unfortunately, there’s not a great gluten-free option for these quesadillas unless you want to buy gluten-free tortillas.
