Chicken Quinoa

"If chicken soup and pilaf had a kid, I think it would be chicken quinoa. Quinoa is a very healthy ancient grain from South America; it's very filling! I think it's delicious. I used leftover roasted chicken to make this come together faster, but any kind of lean cooked meat can be used in this recipe. To make a vegetarian version, omit the meat and use vegetable stock instead of chicken."

Perfect with a salad. I used frozen vegetables and leftover rotisserie chicken.

This recipe is bland, and,quite frankly, inedible. No one in my family could eat it.

I added more than double the chicken broth on accident and was worried. It turned out great and I will make it like that again. My entire family loved it.

Delicious healthy recipe! Changed the green pepper to a mix of red and yellow because I hate green pepper, and drizzled lemon juice on it at time of serving. Wonderful!

This re recipe is fast and easy to make. It is just a little bland. Definitively needs salt and pepper but something else. I will make it again and figure out another spice to give it a little ...

This was quite good. I increased the amount of quinoa and added leeks to the veggies. Will definitely make again!
