    Quick & Easy Recipe: Chicken Quesadillas

    For everyday meals, I love quick and easy recipes. Anything that takes less than 30 minutes to prep and cook means I can get to the best part, eating, as soon as possible. Recently, my mom bought a Cuisinart griddler and my life hasn’t been the same since. It’s multi-functional so you can make different kinds of food like panini sandwiches, steak, and pancakes. The one food I can’t stop making is quesadillas. I’m not a big quesadilla lover, but with this griddler I can see myself eating it for days. To show you how easy it is to make, check out the photos!
