Quinoa, Chicken and Veggie Bowl

So I was supposed to have recipes in mind last week but then naturally I completely forgot what I was supposed to do with the ingredients that we bought…

So I decided that I would just throw stuff altogether and hope for the best. Luckily, it was delicious!

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced (8.7 calories)
  • 3 chicken breasts, cubed (300 calories)

  • 2 tbs olive oil, divided

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions
  2. Heat 1 tbs of olive oil in a pan, season chicken with desired amount of all season salt and cook in pan with oil
  3. In pot or a large sauce pan, heat the other tablespoon of olive oil, add the onions and the garlic. Once translucent, add can of diced tomatoes, including the liquid
  4. Allow the mixture to heat up. Drain and rinse beans then add to the mixture
  5. Once chicken is done cooking, cut up into cubes
