Nothing is better than coming home and having your dinner practically waiting for you! This chicken could also be used on nachos, in tacos, or in some sort of Mexican casserole. It is moist and delicious and literally falls apart in the crock pot. I found this recipe posted by a Molly Day on another cooking site. Enjoy!

Made for ZWT-8 because you're right. There is nothing better than coming home & finding dinner waiting for you - esp this one. My appreciation for a good quesadilla is a legacy of my dys in Dallas, so choosing to make your recipe was a no-brainer for me. This quesadilla chicken filling is esp good & its versatility gets high marks from me. I used a chunky med-heat salsa & made the recipe as written, altho I do 1 tiny thing different from most quesadilla preps. I've never been very good at the flip thing, so I start w/a cheese layer 1st, then add the filling (chicken mixture here) & finish w/another layer of cheese. It's twissis-proof because the melting cheese on both sides binds everything together & I can't mess it up. We started w/Mexican Chicken Rice Soup (Caldo Cantina) by Debbie R. & ended w/your yummy quesadilla. It was a good pairing. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

Such an easy and delicious recipe! I made it exactly as stated in the recipe and it was delicious! Makes the house smell amazing too, I couldn't wait for dinner!

Pretty good. I used bone-in legs on high so it would get done faster. I should have made some quesadilla sauce, since I thought this was a little bland.
