Baked Chicken and Quinoa Chili

July 6, 2014

ThereĀ are 3 things I enjoy eating. Beans Quinoa and Pasta. My kids can eat quinoa all day long. Just plain quinoa nothing at all on it. So I try to make different things so I can get them to eat. This meal was delicious. I can never please them all. One of the twins picked out the beans and my oldest picked out the onions. In the end they all ate and it was all gone. This is very healthy with complex carbs and high in protein. I only wish I was able to add some chili peppers in the mix, I bet it would have tasted even better. I simply cant or my kids would not touch it. Its enough sometimes they think black pepper is spicy. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

      Hi Steph

      I always use double the amount of water. so 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water. As soon as it starts to boil I lower the heat and just let it simmer.. Hope it helps
