Chicken and Quinoa

Every time I make this combo, I kick myself for not making it more often. Ideally this recipe is a perfect staple to get you through the week with healthy lunches! Put it on a salad, in a tortilla, or just eat it up with salsa and fresh onions chopped on top- YUM! This recipe is also perfectly paired with our Veggie Bowl recipe! -Jenna
