Chicken quesadillas have become a “go to” recipe for my family. It is an easy healthy meal that everyone willingly eats with no threats or bribes. For this reason you will find it consistently on my menu plan.
The recipe by itself is rather simple to prepare. Just take some chicken and throw it in a tortilla with some cheese, salsa, and other goodies of your choice.
However, even the easiest of recipes can get screwed up. For example, maybe you are running low on or forgot the cheese. Or maybe you only have 2 tortillas because your husband decided to use the rest for his new nacho recipe. Or you used up all the chicken for that awesome recipe you found on Pinterest.
Does this sound familiar? I have been there many times – too many! This is why I needed to come up with a solution, my Chicken Quesadilla freezer meal kit.
With this freezer meal kit the main ingredients needed for chicken quesadillas are there, labeled, in one package. Not only does this guarantee I won’t use the food for other recipes but more importantly it makes it a cinch for my husband to get dinner on the table if I am not home.
This dinner solution is so incredibly basic, though one I only recently discovered. I have found it to be very helpful and I hope you do as well. Enjoy!
How to put Together a Chicken Quesadilla Freezer Kit
This is not necessarily a recipe but more a “how to” for creating a freezer meal kit using your own recipe. I did offer ingredient suggestions, based on what I use, for guidance.
Chicken Quesadilla Freezer Kit
The amount of ingredients will depend on the size of your family.
Shredded Chicken (I use my slow cooker Mexican shredded chicken)
Shredded Taco Cheese
**If you use peppers and onions you can sauté them up ahead of time and freeze as well.
Put shredded chicken, cheese, and vegetables (if using) into separate freezer bags then place together in large freezer bag. Then place tortillas into the freezer bag. All components of the meal should be in one bag. Label and place into the freezer.
When you are ready to eat take the kit out in the morning (or night before) and let thaw in the refrigerator. More than likely the chicken will not be thaw by dinner time. You can warm it up in microwave or on stove. Prepare quesadillas as you normally wood. Serve with your favorite condiments.
