Pro Tips:

Flour tortillas work best for quesadillas.  You could also use gluten-free tortillas, so long as they are soft and pliable.
 
I prefer shredding my own cheese from the block as it melts much better than already shredded cheese from a bag.
 
Ranch or Blue Cheese make the best dipping sauces for Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas.
 
If you like blue cheese, you could also add a few crumbles in the with shredded cheddar.
 
Adding finely chopped celery to the chicken will give your quesadillas some added flare.
