    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.

    This is the best combination of chicken and fruit that i have tried. The sweetness from the preserves and the saltiness from the bacon is the best. My kids and husband request this meal all the time.  -  11 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was absolutely wonderful!!! Everyone enjoyed it. I didn't have honey mustard, so I used dijon and added honey to that. This is great dish to make on a hot summer day! Yummy! Will make again for sure! Thank you!!  -  31 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
