Southwestern Quinoa Chicken Bowl

This is a yummy, easy, healthy, hodge podge mixture of food that is Dee-lish! This was the first time that Garrett ever tried Quinoa and he loved it! It's super good for you too. It is one of the few grains (maybe the only one?) that gives you all the essential amino acids of a protein like meat does! If it was truly "Southwestern" I probably should have thrown some beans in the mix but I don't like beans so sue me haha!

Southwestern Quinoa Chicken Bowl (Recipe from: Elizabeth Weight)
Quinoa (Cooked according to package directions. I cooked mine in chicken broth)
Chicken breasts, chopped (1 breast per person, season with Creole or Cajun seasoning)

Optional Mix-ins:
Tomatoes
Corn
Avocados
Beans

  1. Cook Quinoa according to package directions but use chicken broth instead of water. (1/2 cup dry quinoa usually serves 2 people when its cooked)
  2. Season and chop chicken into bite size pieces. Cook chicken breasts in pan or George Foreman grill.
  3. Mix quinoa with desired add-in's and pour some creamy cilantro dressing on top.
