  1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cook the chicken in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned and cooked through, stirring often. Stir in the soup, salsa, cheese and chili powder and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.
  3. Place the tortillas onto 2 baking sheets. Spread about 1/3 cup chicken mixture on half of each tortilla to within 1/2-inch of the edge. Brush the edges of the tortillas with water. Fold the tortillas over the filling and press the edges to seal.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes or until the filling is hot. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with additional salsa.

I was a little skeptical about this because i am a big fan of Quesadillas but i figured i would try it. i loved it. This seems like it could also be a great dip sauce.

These were just okay. I think that next time I will use about half a can of the soup. It seemed less cheesier that I was expecting.

I'd use a little less cream of chicken next time. I also used shredded chicken and mozza and cheddar cheese instead. tasted great!

These were awesome! I added 3 green onions to the mix just because to me Quesadillas are not the same without green onions. Very quick recipe and delicious served with salsa and sour cream.

Thanks to the other reviewers who suggested reducing the soup...I only used 1/2 and it came out great! I may add more cheese on my next batch. But, overall I was satisfied with the recipe.

These were pretty good. I used leftover bbq chicken that i pulled off the bone and I added corn, just to use up some leftovers. I used a mexican 4 cheese blend also. I couldn't get my tortillas to seal with just water so i sprinkled cheese on top to act as a glue. We all enjoyed this. I will keep this one on file for something quick and easy, especially if i have leftover chicken that needs to be used up.

Yumm!! Big favorite of ours! We substitute Campbells' Southwest Pepper Jack Soup. This recipe is a keeper:)

This was very tasty. I had run out of cream of chicken soup so I substituted chedder cheese soup and sprinkled a bit of jack cheese on top and some chopped green onion. The family loved it!!!!
