  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; add quinoa, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, about 25 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork; set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir mushroom and garlic in hot oil until the mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer mushroom mixture to a bowl. Return skillet to heat.
  3. Cook and stir diced chicken in the skillet until no longer pink the center, 10 to 15 minutes; season with sea salt and pepper. Stir carrot, red onion, tomato, and green onion with the chicken; cook and stir until the vegetables are hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Add quinoa and stir. Top with cilantro and lime juice.

The recipe was very easy, and tasted pretty good. The word "Thai" in the title is misleading as there is nothing Thai about this recipe. Will probably make again.

I thought this recipe was rather bland. It wasn’t until I added some hot sauce that it had any real flavor.

I really enjoyed this recipe.Besides adding the ingredients which had been left out in the procedure, I added fish sauce and reduced the amount of salt. Thanks for sharing
