What's for Dinner is a little insight into my life for you every Monday night. I carefully plan out meals for the week ahead of time and do my shopping over the weekend. So I wanted to start sharing with you one of the recipes or dinners I am most looking forward to each week.
You will notice that I changed the title of this post because I hope to share with you pictures of the dinner I prepared and/or little recipe adjustments I made to satisfy our tastes.
This last week I came across a recipe for CrockPot Chicken Quesadillas and thought it would be a simple yet filling dish for our family, but for the life of me I can't remember the website (and believe it or not it wasn't Pinterest or All Recipes).
So I will just tell you the recipe (because it is that simple)
2lbs chicken breast
1 packet of ranch dressing seasoning
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can chicken broth
toppings as needed
Put the chicken, both packets of seasoning and chicken broth in crock pot on high for 3 hours. Shred chicken with forks and allow to cook for another half hour. Then make quesadillas in a skillet with toppings as desired.
Our toppings: the chicken, salsa, black olives, sauté mushrooms and onions, shredded Colby Jack cheese, and sour cream.
My finished Quesadilla
Munchkin didn't want any until I told him there were onions in it . . .
After verifying that there were in fact onions in it and that I wasn't lying to him, they were quickly devoured.
My hubby's comment was that the chicken was a little salty (he seems to be very sensitive to the flavor of salt) so maybe next time I will do half water and half broth or cut down on the seasonings.
