"My family and I enjoyed this meal! The thing I did different was I did not use oregano and I boiled the chicken with one cube of bouillon."

"My husband loves quesadillas and this one is now his favorite one to make. After making the chicken mixture he just uses the skillet on top of the stove to lay the tortilla flat, then adds the cheese and mixture topped off with another tortilla. Flip it once and it is perfect."
