Quinoa and Honey Mustard Chicken Slow Cooker Meal

Rated as 3.27 out of 5 Stars

"This goes into the cooker quickly, with no precooking and chicken straight from the freezer. I like to put it in before we leave for church so I can come home to a nice meal. Serve with a green salad and some steamed veggies."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Nutritional yeast flakes are a seasoning and not like bread yeast. They can be purchased at a health food store or online. If you cannot find them they can be omitted. Do not substitute any other yeast!
  • Substitute dried chives for fresh, if desired.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup

Not at all what I expected. Consistency did not match photos. Too salty, I thought. Won’t make it again.

Meh. I felt like I measured out and put a lot of ingredients in there, but in the end, it was flavorless. Half tempted to try again, but double up on seasonings, and maybe mix some of the mustar...

I have to say I was very excited to make this recipe, but was so disappointed when I ate it. The only thing I changed was dijon mustard in place of spicy brown, (only because I didn’t have any)...

Flavor was good. I used bouillon with the water and didn't have spicy mustard so made my own spices to add some heat. Turned out well but I'm going to keep playing with it to find the perfect ba...

I was pretty disappointed in it. Seemed to be flavorless and mushy. If I try this again, I'm going to season chicken breasts with salt/pepper and instead of using water, use chicken stock.

Quinoa came out mushy but YUMMY. Cooked low 6 hours with frozen chicken breasts - came out dry, and quinoa mix slightly burnt on sides of the crock pot. May try with fresh chicken on low for 3-4...

This is really good and simple! One change: I used ground almonds instead of nutritional yeast. (I didn't have any.)

This was yummy. My chicken breasts were not frozen so I adjusted the cooking time and temp.. Otherwise I made as per the recipe. The quinoa got a little on the soft side, so I would suggest chec...
