Chipotle Chicken, Apricot and Brie Quesadillas

The chipotle chicken, apricot and brie quesadillas are sure to be a hit at your next meal! The combination of the spicy chipotle chicken along with the apricots and the melted cheese all wrapped in crispy tortillas, will have everyone asking for me. As a bonus, the touch of sweetness from the apricot preserves work just as well as they do in grilled cheese sandwiches!
