It was kind of bland
These were easy to assemble. Family loved them.
I cannot cook - and when I made this recipe, both my husband were surprised at how much we loved it! It's easy and fast! Like one of the other reviewers, I doctored the chicken by adding chili powder to it before adding it to the skillet. I also skipped the oil and used cooking spray to cook the Quesadillas - turned out great. This is now a staple recipe in our house! THANK YOU!
Very tasty and very easy to make.
Super easy and pretty basic ingredients. This has become one of our regular go-to meals.
