Mango Chicken Quesadillas

It is always  good to have a nice, hot lunch as an alternative to sandwiches.  I used to make lunch for my children almost every day, because we homeschooled and I wanted to make sure they got a healthy lunch.  But now my oldest is in college, my middle child is in public school and just my son and I are left at home.  He complains frequently that I never make lunch anymore now that it is just him, and instead we have leftovers or sandwiches. But it doesn’t make sense to spend a lot of time making a meal for just two of us. This is a quick and easy lunch for us.

 

Chopped MangoMy son and I both enjoy quesadillas, so we decided to make Mango Chicken Quesadillas for our lunch. I included the recipe below, but it was very easy to prepare and took less than 10 minutes from start to finish perfect for a quick, hot meal.  To start off with I chopped up about 1/3 of a mango.  Mangos are nutritious, delicious, and go great with Mexican inspired foods.

 

 

Next, I divided the chicken breast between 4 flour tortillas, and topped it with the mango, shredded cheese and some fresh coriander.

Filling the tortillas

I folded the tortillas over and browned them in a frying pan for a few minutes and lunch was ready!  My son topped his with sour cream and guacamole, but since I am trying to lose weight I skipped those toppings.  Either way it was very tasty, and the coriander and mango went nicely with the chicken and made the quesadilla seem more fancy than just a standard chicken quesadilla.  With quick options like this I can make a hot lunch for my son and I more often – or even better have him make the lunch for us!
