  1. Bring chicken broth and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic in hot oil until onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add ground chicken and break into small pieces while cooking until completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Stir cooked quinoa and diced tomatoes into the chicken mixture; bring to a simmer and cook long enough for the flavors to meld, about 10 minutes more.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I loved this, so much so that I ended up having 2 servings. I scaled down the recipe to 4 servings (since I only had 1lb of ground chicken and 1 can of Rotel), but followed the recipe exactly. ...

After preparing it according to the recipe I thought it was a little bland. I noticed one of the reviews mentioned lime juice so I added lime juice, fresh cilantro, a little paprika and a littl...

I LOVE this recipe. I make it quite often, it is pretty easy and not a lot of ingredients. The lime juice makes a pretty big difference, so don't forget it! :-)

We really enjoyed this very easy to make dish. I did use chopped baked chicken breast instead of ground chicken. I used a whole onion chopped and just one can of Rotel. I did add a can of rin...

Simple and colorful and tasty!

We loved this and it was so easy to make! Rating the recipe a 4 because I did modify it based on the other reviews, would be a 4 ½ if we could do half stars as it was great. I chopped up a red ...

Yum! I used fresh tomatoes and semi-hot peppers from yum garden. Next time I might try easing up on the broth (adding water) and adding some other veggies.

This is the best quinoa recipe I have found so far. I used ground turkey and leftovers heat up nicely. It's a keeper - thanks for sharing!
