yields twelve servings, two wedges each

1 container (8 oz) sour cream
4 green onions, thinly sliced (4 tablespoons)
1 package (1 oz) ranch dip mix
1 cup chunky-style salsa
1/4 cup Smucker's® Peach Preserves
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 lb sliced roasted chicken (from deli), chopped
3/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend or crumbled queso blanco cheese (3 oz)
8 slices precooked bacon, chopped
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits)

In small bowl, mix sour cream, 1 sliced green onion and 1 tablespoon of the ranch dip mix. In another small bowl, mix salsa, preserves and 1 tablespoon of the cilantro.

Heat closed medium-size contact grill for 5 minutes; spray grill plates with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix chicken, cheese, bacon and remaining green onions, cilantro and ranch dip mix.

Separate dough into 8 biscuits; press or roll each into 5-inch round. Place 1/4 cup chicken mixture on one side of each biscuit round. Fold biscuit over filling; press edges to seal.

Place biscuits, two at a time, on grill; close grill. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges. Serve with sour cream and salsa mixtures.
