Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 14 to 16 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Thinly slice chicken.

  • 3 To make quesadillas, top half of each tortilla with chicken, kimchi, cheese and green onion. Fold tortillas in half. Brush both sides of tortilla with oil. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add 2 quesadillas to skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, turning once, until tortilla is brown and crisp and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining quesadillas. Cut quesadillas into wedges. Serve with sauce.

Expert Tips

Kimchi is a spicy-hot, fermented condiment that is served at almost every Korean meal. It's made of fermented vegetables such as napa cabbage, radish, green onions or cucumbers, that have been pickled. Kimchi can be purchased in the refrigerated produce section of major grocery store or at a Korean market.
