Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; add quinoa, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, about 25 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork; set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir mushroom and garlic in hot oil until the mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer mushroom mixture to a bowl. Return skillet to heat.
  3. Cook and stir diced chicken in the skillet until no longer pink the center, 10 to 15 minutes; season with sea salt and pepper. Stir carrot, red onion, tomato, and green onion with the chicken; cook and stir until the vegetables are hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Add quinoa and stir. Top with cilantro and lime juice.

The instructions are incomplete. You need to add the mushroom/garlic mixture back in:) Of course, I did that. My husband and I enjoyed the dish a good deal. The lime at the end adds a lot. I wasn't sure how much to buy and ended up with extra mushrooms and red onions. Because I was using leftover chicken, I had less chicken. I'm not suggesting altering the recipe, just pointing out that it's flexible. I have been learning more about using quinoa, and I find that because I'm rinsing first as recommended by many, I use just 1 cup of water for cooking the quinoa.
