Chicken Quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced carrot
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, carrot, celery, bell pepper, and garlic in hot oil until vegetables are tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Stir chicken and parsley into the vegetable mixture; cook and stir for about 1 minute. Add quinoa to the chicken mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook and stir until quinoa is toasted, about 2 minutes.
  3. Pour chicken broth over the quinoa mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low. Place a cover on the saucepan and cook mixture at a simmer until the quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes. Turn heat completely off and allow mixture to sit covered another 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Fluff with a fork to serve.
