Chicken Quesadillas With Ranch Aioli
Chicken Quesadillas are served with portobello mushrooms and corn. I added a easy homemade Ranch aioli and shredded cheese to make it kid friendly and ready in 10 minutes or less. My kids love eating with their fingers and dipping. Perfect for a quick and easy weeknight dinner that the whole family will enjoy.
Let’s face it, back to school is upon us. Lot’s of parents are happy and I am of the kind of scared. My youngest is starting Kindergarten and my oldest 2nd grade. They will be going to 2 different schools with different schedules. I have no idea how I am going to get organized with lunchboxes and after school activities. The first week will be kind of hectic, that’s why I love quick and easy meals to make this transition a breeze.
You must be wondering, how do I get this meal ready so quickly? Cooking the chicken alone takes more than that. Well I took a bit of a shortcut and while I was getting my back to school supplies at Walmart, I purchased a bag of Tyson® Grilled and Ready Breast Strips®. Just open the bag and toss it directly into your recipes. I added mine frozen directly on the skillet with the veggies and they were ready to go in 3 minutes. Tyson®’s Grilled And Ready Breast Chicken Strips® are:
- 100% all-natural and made with all-white meat
- 97% fat free
- Effortless way to make healthy home cooked meals
- Fully cooked
Another great reason to get Tyson® Grilled and Ready® Chicken Breast Strips is to participate in their amazing Tyson® Project A+™. Next time you head on over to Walmart. Look for the specially marked bags and cut out the code that’s located on the back (on the bottom left side). For each label you turn in, your school will get cash to use on whatever it needs. Isn’t that cool? This project is available in a wide variety of Tyson® products. So get clipping and help your local school get the cash it needs.
I hope you can try these delicious Chicken Quesadillas at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.
