  • Summary

    This recipe is part of our Back-to-School Meal Plan featuring five easy weeknight dinners made from one grocery bag of ingredients. These delicious quesadillas are packed with flavor thanks to lightly spiced chicken, mushrooms, spinach, and Monterey Jack cheese. A tangy mix of cilantro, yogurt, and lime juice makes the perfect dipping sauce, and pretty carrot and mango ribbons combine for a refreshing slaw. If you are following our Back-to-School Meal Plan, make a double batch of the chicken and reserve half for the Rice Noodles with Peanut Sauce, Chicken, and Snap Peas. Make a triple batch of the cilantro-yogurt sauce and reserve two-thirds for the Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Curry Chickpeas.
