Surprise Simple Success

I had planned to wait to recap the Quinoa Broccoli Chicken Casserole until later in the week, but it was such a hit, I had to post tonight.

Everyone loved it.  Yes, that means Boog too, who ate two big spoonfuls, including the broccoli.

Here’s the “recipe”, sorry I don’t really measure things:

Quinoa Broccoli Chicken Casserole

1 lb chicken breast, diced

1 medium onion, diced

1 cup quinoa

Broth (in whatever water quantity your quinoa or quinoa/rice blend calls for, usually 1-1/2 to 2 cups)

1 can Ro-tel tomatoes


Cilantro (or cilantro paste, no judgment here)

Salt and pepper to taste

Cheddar cheese (go with what you know, again no judgment)

Saute the chicken and onions until the chicken is cooked through.

Follow cooking directions for your quinoa, substituting broth for water.

Cook the broccoli – I usually use frozen or the fresh microwave packs.

Add the cooked chicken/onion mixture, cooked broccoli, and remaining ingredients to the quinoa and mix thoroughly.

Kid-approved dinner done!
