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

Ingredients:
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

Broccoli

Cilantro (or cilantro paste, no judgment here)

Salt and pepper to taste

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

Directions:
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!
