Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add half of the chicken. Cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates and chicken browns. Remove from skillet; set aside. Repeat with 1 more tablespoon of the oil and the remaining chicken.
Place all chicken into skillet; stir in drained tomatoes and cilantro. Heat through. Place chicken mixture in medium bowl. Wipe skillet clean.
Place tortillas on flat surface. Spread equal amounts of chicken mixture on 1/2 of each tortilla. Top chicken mixture with cheese, then avocado pieces. Fold other half of each tortilla over filling.
Brush the top of each quesadilla with oil. Heat skillet over medium-high heat about 1 minute. Place oiled side of tortilla down into skillet. Brush exposed side of tortilla with oil.
Cook each quesadilla about 1 minute per side or until cheese melts and tortilla is slightly crisp. Serve with lime, pico de gallo, and sour cream, if desired.
