Serves: 8 

  • 4 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 2 tablespoons pineapple jam
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 365g Gruyere cheese, grated
  • 30g butter
  • 280g cooked chicken, chopped
  • 90g cooked streaky bacon, crumbled
  • 250g tinned pineapple, roughly chopped

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:22min 

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the honey mustard and pineapple jam. Divide the mixture evenly between 4 of the tortillas. Spread evenly to within 2.5cm of the edges. Distribute the Gruyere cheese, chicken, bacon evenly over the pineapple mixture; top with remaining tortillas to make quesadillas.
  2. Preheat the oven to 120 C / Gas 1/2.
  3. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Melt a small amount of the butter in the frying pan, tilting the pan to cover the surface with butter. Place one of the quesadillas into the frying pan; fry on each side until lightly browned and the cheese has melted, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Keep cooked quesadillas in a warm oven while you fry the remaining.
  4. To serve, cut each quesadilla into 6 wedges and arrange on a platter with pineapple bits in the centre.
