Quinoa is a high protein grain and a good source of fiber. Combined with veggies and chicken – this one-dish meal is filling and healthy.
2 cups cooked and cubed butternut squash
1 cup quinoa (made with low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth)
1 pound chicken breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves
1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
1 yellow squash, cut into chunks
1 Anaheim Chili, seeded and diced
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
Black pepper to taste
4 tablespoons feta cheese
1 Cook Quinoa according to package directions using low sodium broth.
2 Cut chicken into chunks. Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat and add oil. Add chicken and sauté for 5 minutes or until golden brown.
3 Add garlic, onion, bell pepper, squash and chili and sauté until vegetables are tender-crisp (about 2 minutes). Add cooked butternut squash and cook until warmed.
4 Remove from heat. Season with black pepper to taste and stir in basil. Garnish each serving with 1 tablespoon feta cheese.
5 Garbanzo beans or tofu may be substituted for chicken.
