"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

diced green bell pepper
chopped cooked chicken
salt and ground black pepper to taste
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 found this recipe because 1) I had all the ingredients on hand; and 2) it appeared to be pretty healthy and 3) quick and easy to make, and 4) it was a one dish meal. So this recipe has a lot going for it. It tasted good but we like lots of flavor and this was a little on the bland side for our taste. I cooked the Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken Recipe (from this site) in a skillet and then sautéed the vegetables and quinoa in the same skillet to add some flavor. When I make it again, (and I will make it again) I will probably use blackened chicken to add more flavor.
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 burst of flavor.
This was quite good. I increased the amount of quinoa and added leeks to the veggies. Will definitely make again!
