Directions

  1. Stir quinoa and chicken broth together in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the quinoa has absorbed the chicken broth, about 15 minutes.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook and stir the chicken breast pieces in the hot oil until no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes. Stir asparagus and red bell pepper into the skillet and cook and stir until barely tender, about 3 more minutes.
  3. Lightly mix cooked quinoa into the chicken and vegetables until thoroughly combined, heat for 1 to 2 minutes, and serve.

Husband and I both really enjoyed this. I modified recipe for 2 servings, used an 8-ounce b/s chicken breast, the same amount of asparagus and substituted jarred roasted red pepper for the bell pepper. Fast, super-easy and perfect for my Weight Watchers plan...only 9 points! And anytime husband says 'I like it,' it's a keeper! Thanks Kris!

Im only giving it 3 stars because it was bland for my taste but has lots of potential. The second time I made it I changed a few things. I sauteed a small chopped onion, dash of red pepper flakes and 2 minced garlic cloves until translucent. Then added the chicken, salt, pepper, a dash or two of dried oregano and basil. This really upped the flavor without adding a ton of calories and turned it into a 5 star dish. Yum, yum. Thanks for sharing.
