Servings: 2 people

Ingredients

  • 1 Boneless/skinless chicken breast Cooked (see cooking instructions below or use rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 cup Quinoa Cooked (see cooking instructions below, or use premade 90-second quinoa)
  • 1/4 cup Teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 cup Broccoli Cooked (I roast broccoli with olive oil, salt and a pressed garlic clove -or use microwave steamed broccoli)
  • 2 Tbs Cashews
  • 2 Tbs Sriracha mayo (2 tbs mayo, 1/2 - 1 tsp sriracha)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped, optional

Quinoa

  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 cups water

Instructions

Quinoa

  • Rinse quinoa for about 30 seconds.
  • Combine quinoa and water in saucepan and bring to a boil. Decrease heat to low and cook until quinoa has absorbed all of the water.

Chicken

  • Coat chicken in olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic salt and 1 pressed garlic clove (or a dash of garlic salt). Bake until done. Time will vary depending on size of chicken breast.
    Alternatively, pan fry the chicken breast or cook it in a slow cooker.

Bowl

  • To assemble bowls -divide quinoa between two bowls, and divide toppings between the bowls-chicken, broccoli, cashews, and sriracha mayo, then drizzle teriyaki sauce and. Enjoy!

Notes

For more flavor, you can cook your quinoa in chicken stock or 1 tsp. Better than Bullion instead of water.
