Garlic and Herb Chicken Quesadillas

What are weekday meals like at your house? At our home, it depends on the time of year. Our craziest time is football season. For a couple of years, not only did we have practice every day of the week, but we had four football games every week. Ronnie played JV High School Football on Thursday night. Alexandra cheered for the Varsity Football Team on Friday night. Riley had a game at 9am on Saturday and Reis played Saturday night! I kept on telling myself that I would miss this one day… When Alexandra left for college, we thought we had it easy with only three games per week.

It is during times like this that I realize the importance of us sitting together and enjoying Sunday Supper.  Time Around the Family Table has always been so important to our family.  Quick, easy and wholesome recipes that we can cook together are key to our #WeekdaySupper success. One of our favorites is Quesadillas.  My kids love coming up with their own combinations to fill the tortillas with.

Reis is truly the Quesadilla King.  He creates some of the most amazing recipes and comes up with the best fillings.  When I told Reis about the New Sauté Express® Sauté Starter, he couldn’t wait to come up with a new Quesadilla Recipe.  I have to tell you, what he came up with was out of this world!  Not only was the filling full of flavor but he came up with a way to flavor the crispy tortilla. The flavor of the Garlic and Herb permeates the crispy tortilla for a tantalizing surprise!  Everyone in our house fell in love with these Garlic and Herb Chicken Quesadillas.   If you want to make your Quesadillas extra special, you must try making Stop Light Salsa by Reis.  You will be glad you did… it is so good and the perfect topping to the Garlic and Herb Chicken Quesadillas.
