Quick, easy and delicious. I used the leftover chicken in the Herbed Potato Soup recipe and it was amazing!

This recipe is amazing just as it is! Blew my husband away. And he is not quick to say something is amazingly delicious unless he really thinks so. Perfect flavor and the baked aspect is what really puts this over the edge into the delicious category. Making it again tonight. Will be using this recipe for years to come. Thank you!

I used the Mexican 4 cheese shredded cheese blend instead. I also needed to add a little more salsa, 1 ounce water, and 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, because the mixture was so dry.5 stars for this one. They came out beautiful, and very tasty.This will be a regular for me. I think I'll make up a big pan of the chicken mixture, and freeze portions.Then this will be a super quick and easy meal.

This was pretty tasty! My husband and 4 year old gobbled it up without a fuss. I didn't add extra salsa, it wasn't necessary because I didn't want soggy quesadillas but I did add some cumin. Instead of making six halfed quesadillas I did three whole ones and just cut them in slices afterwards, much easier and less mess! Next time I might experiment with green salsa.

Very good recipe. I added 1 small can of green chiles (undrained) to the chicken thighs because they seemed a little dry. I spread a layer of refried beans on half of each tortilla before adding the chicken mixture. It tasted a bit bland, so next time I might add some jalapenos. Spreading a very thin smear of butter on the outside of each tortilla seemed easier than brushing on melted butter. This will become a regular dinner recipe for us. Most of this can be prepared in advance, so it makes for a very quick dinner.
