Easy Chicken Quesadilla Recipe with Mango

One piece of chicken breast with brown rice made four good-sized easy chicken quesadilla recipes and it was a perfect sized meal for 2 adults, 2 little kids and one baby! This is such super-quick and easy meal that everyone likes and great for warm-weather cooking when you’d rather be outside playing then in the kitchen cooking.
The best thing about this meal is I can put the chicken in the crockpot or slow cooker in the morning with some chicken broth and let it cook all day. By dinnertime the chicken is perfectly tender and ready for delicious chicken quesadillas!
