Servings 4 Servings


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Revolution Barbecue All Purpose Rub
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican quesadilla cheese
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Homemade salsa or pico de gallo for serving


  • Preheat your BBQ grill to medium-high heat.
  • Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, gently pound the chicken breasts to flatten them to an even thickness. This will help them cook more evenly.
  • Drizzle the flattened chicken breasts with olive oil and rub it in to coat both sides.
  • Sprinkle the Revolution Barbecue All Purpose Rub over both sides of the chicken breasts, pressing the rub into the meat to ensure it adheres well.
  • Place the seasoned chicken breasts on the preheated grill and cook for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts. Once cooked, remove from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before slicing.
  • While the chicken is resting, prepare the avocado crema. In a blender or food processor, combine the ripe avocado, sour cream, lime juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  • Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Place a flour tortilla on the skillet and sprinkle a layer of shredded Mexican quesadilla cheese on one half of the tortilla.
  • Slice the grilled chicken breasts into thin strips and place a generous amount on top of the cheese.
  • Fold the tortilla in half to cover the filling and press it down gently with a spatula.
  • Cook the quesadilla for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese has melted.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas, cheese, and chicken.
  • Once all the quesadillas are cooked, cut them into wedges or triangles.
  • Serve the BBQ Chicken Quesadillas with the avocado crema


Serving suggestions: You can enjoy the quesadillas as is, or you can serve them with a side of homemade salsa or pico de gallo for an extra burst of flavor. You can also add some fresh cilantro or a squeeze of lime juice over the quesadillas for added freshness. Enjoy!
