Grilled Chicken & Sesame Stir-fry Quinoa Bowl
Grilled Chicken Sesame Stir-fry Quinoa Bowl
makes 1 bowl
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1/2 cup cooked grilled chicken, diced
1 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 cup assortment of stir-fry veggies (I always use a frozen pack from Trader Joe’s that includes broccoli, snap peas, water chestnuts, carrots, and mushrooms)
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced into rings
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Combined both quinoa and water in a rice cooker and set to cook. Instructions here. When the quinoa is done, fluff with a fork and set aside.
Heat your sesame oil up in a skillet set to medium-high heat. When it starts to pop, add in your sliced bell pepper and allow to cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add in the rest of your stir-fry veggies, as well as your grilled chicken, and allow for them to heat through. If you opted to use fresh vegetables, adjust your timing needing to cook them to completion. I like to use the frozen stuff since A) you’re essentially just heating them through, and B) they are juuuust as good. Toss everything together to coat in the sesame oil, then sprinkle on your sesame seeds.
Transfer the quinoa, veggies, and chicken to a serving bowl and garnish with additional seeds if you’d like. Now take a picture and post it to Instagram using the hashtag #FitLife. Just kidding, enjoy!
