Cheesy Chicken Quesadilla Recipe

The long-awaited and overdue weekend classic is here! I’m not a super fan of a normal cheesy quesadilla.

They are just kinda boring in my opinion. Why not amp up the flavors and do the name ‘Quesadilla‘ some justice?!

This cheesy chicken quesadilla is a KNOCKOUT on the flavor scale. I know you will love it!
