Go Nuts For Thai Chicken Quesadillas!
Leave the plain cheese behind and give your family a reason to go nuts! Our Thai Chicken Quesadillas will make dinner an adventure!
Any dish that’s Peanut based is an easy sell in my house! Add to that the combo of a Thai twist to a family favorite and we have a true winner winner chicken dinner! Thai Chicken Quesadillas baby! My kids inhale these. So much so, I have to buy the XXXL burritos.
Not that anyone ever needs a reason to enjoy quesadillas, but when you make Thai Chicken Quesadillas, every bite makes you close your eyes and chew slowly. You’ll be lost in a savory bliss. Herbs like cilantro, mint & basil, peanut sauce, juicy chicken, lime and gooey cheese. These baby’s make my mouth water and they are ready in minutes!
Filled with juicy Thai marinated chicken, crisp carrots and red onions, flavorful Thai inspired herbs and drizzled with a savory Thai peanut sauce, no one will want to share! No one. And how can we blame them? With a dish this lusciously-delicious, it’s easy to see how this recipe can so quickly become a family staple.
It’s Thai-riffic (say it with a Hee-Haw kind of accent).
We eat a lot of asian inspired dishes at my house. My kids love the variety. The lighter the style of cuisine, the better, like Thai, Vietnamese (my all time favorite) and Korean. Chinese food, while yummy, can be really heavy. I find you can eat your weight in Thai or Vietnamese and actually leave the table like you did something good for yourself! Go figure. But they are so packed full of fresh veggies an herbs, it almost counts as eating a few salads for dinner.
The peanut sauce is real star here! It’s the same sauce we use in our Thai Noodle Bowls and Thai Spring Rolls. Babe, its crack. It is beyond amazing and can be used to dip just about anything! You could even skip the quesadilla factor and use the marinated chicken to make Chicken Satay for kiddos that may be a bit picky.
Peanuts are high in protein, healthy fats and fiber. Not only that, peanuts are a Diabetes Super Food! We’re working with The Georgia Peanut Commission (who by the way, supplies nearly 50% of the U.S. peanuts) and #Foodiechats to bring you 2 mouth watering Peanut recipes in celebration of March being National Peanut Month.
