ONE-POT QUINOA, CHICKEN & VEGGIES 

4 SERVINGS // 25 MINUTES

Recipe profile: High Protein, Recovery

Sometimes a complicated meal just isn’t going to happen. This is one of my common postworkout meals, a perfect fit for those times when I want some high-quality carbohydrates and protein without a lot of fuss. If you have leftovers, it also makes a great lunch.

  • 2½ cups water
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 2 teaspoons organic chicken or vegetable bouillon
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2½ cups cooked chicken breast or rotisserie chicken, chopped
  • 2 zucchini, chopped
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil

1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add quinoa, bouillon, and garlic and return to a boil.

2. Cover, reduce heat to low, and set timer for 20 minutes. After 10 minutes have gone by, stir in chicken, zucchini, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil and cover again.

3. With 2 minutes remaining, remove lid and stir again. Leave pot uncovered to allow any remaining water to evaporate. Scoop into bowls and enjoy.

    Look’s like a fine appetizer but what if you’re hungry? What are leftovers?

    If skiers are looking for a good deal on quinoa, a couple of months ago Costco (in Anch, AK at least) started selling large bags of organic red quinoa.
