    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

    Preparation: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 then top with remaining tortillas to make quesadillas.
    2. Preheat the oven to 120 degrees C.
    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.

    If your local supermarket doesn't stock it, you may find it online, otherwise you can substitute with apricot jam.

    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 USA and 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 USA and Canada)
