Quinoa chicken salad

04 Apr

Last night I also prepared my lunch. This chicken salad with quinoa. Never had quinoa before until today. I think it turned out really well. I have said that about everything right? Well it’s the truth. Quinoa (keen-wah) is said to be a great source for protein and fiber.

Cook 1/4 cup quinoa in 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth for about 15 minutes. Add 1/4 cup diced cucumber 1/4 cup red peppers, and 3 1/2 ounces of shredded chicken. Whisk together 2 teaspoons of olive oil, teaspoon like juice, 1 tbs rice wine vinegar, 1 tbs chopped cilantro, 1 tbs chopped scallions, 1/2 teaspoon cumin and a pinch each of salt and red pepper flakes. Pour mixture over chicken cucumbers and red peppers. Mix together. Enjoy!
