Quinoa Bowls

 

In attempt to eat healthier following a weekend getaway full of indulgences, I whipped up these Quinoa bowls for dinner the other night.  Initially I wasn’t too sure how the mister would respond to these, but I know him well enough to know that if it has any kind of meat AND hot sauce…we’re good!

this recipe is a DG creation

1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into thin 1 in. strips

other toppings of your choice including, but not limited to: Shredded cheddar cheese, chopped tomato,salsa, avocado, jalapenos, sour cream, hot sauce.

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

  • In a large cast iron pan, heat olive oil.  Add sliced chicken and season generously with chicken seasoning. Cook chicken thoroughly

  • Just before the chicken is finished cooking, place the black beans in a small pot and heat thoroughly.
  • Once these three items are finished you can begin assembly.  Start with a layer of quinoa, chicken, then black beans.  Top with your favorite toppings.
