Did these in the oven at 400 for 10 minutes, because I wasn't confident in my ability to flip them given how much stuff is in there. They turned out delicious! I seared the chicken breasts in the bacon grease.

I made the bacon and chicken quesadillas today, and they were great! I left out the pico de gallo though, because I'm not that crazy about it (it contains onions, and I hate onions). Thanks for posting the recipe!
