Buffalo Chicken Quinoa

April 29, 2018

 

 

I like to make this recipe just to remind my husband what an amazing wife I am. It tastes like chicken wings in every bite. Let me warn you….this recipe is ridiculously easy, but it isn’t quite as quick as most of my recipes. Total hands-on thyme is probably about 25 minutes and you'll need 2 or 3 pans. 

 

This makes enough for 4 bowls. Between my husband and I we usually have 1 bowl leftover. Sometimes I like to double the recipe so we have leftovers for a few days.  

 

Total Thyme: 30 minutes

 

Serves: 4

 

Ingredients:

Quinoa: 2 cups uncooked

 

Chicken Breasts: 2

 

Crumbled Blue Cheese: 1 8 oz container

 

Shredded carrots: 1 cup loosely packed

 

Chopped Broccoli Florets: 1 cup loosely packed

 

Celery: 2 stalks

 

Hot Sauce: ½ container

 

Olive Oil: 1/2 cup

 

Salt

 

 

Directions:

Cook quinoa according to package directions in a large pot (use a large pot so you can mix all the ingredients together in here at the end).

 

Add chicken and water to a pan (enough water to cover chicken) and boil. Once it’s cooked, shred into smaller pieces and set aside.

 

Add a drizzle of oil or non-stick spray to the pan and sauté broccoli and carrot sticks for about 5-8 minutes, stirring frequently.

 

Chop the celery stalks into bite-sized pieces.

 

One quinoa is done, add all the other ingredients into the pot, plus a few shakes of salt, and stir it all together really well.

 

Scoop into bowls and enjoy!
