Quinoa with Butternut Squash, Chicken, and Goat Cheese
This recipe is a recreation of a fabulous lunch I had at a favorite restaurant in the Milwaukee, WI area. My teenagers and husband loved it too! Serve warm or cold with balsamic vinaigrette.
All quantities can be adjusted to taste. Substitute other dried fruit for cranberries if not available. The key is to ensure the chicken and squash are chopped to approximately the same size. Omit chicken for a high-protein vegetarian main dish.
Three cups fresh water can be substituted for water reserved from chicken, if desired.
