Apple Chicken Quesadillas Recipe

Apple Chicken Quesadillas Recipe

My sister came up with easy recipe that can be served as a main course or an appetizer. People are surprised by the combination of chicken, apples, tomatoes and corn inside the crispy tortillas, but they love it. —Stacia Slagle of Maysville, Missouri
