I found this cheesy chicken quesadilla recipe when Rob and I were first married. We were starving college students, so any meal that was delicious and affordable was on repeat in our home. We must’ve had quesadillas a few times per month, and this recipe became our very favorite. The cheese soup not only tastes great and adds to the cheesy flavor, it also helps keep the chicken from drying out. Seriously, this easy chicken quesadilla recipe is SO GOOD!
