Copycat First Watch® Quinoa Power Bowl

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"This is a copycat recipe of First Watch®'s Quinoa Power Bowl. I think you are really going to enjoy this protein-packed quinoa mixed with grilled chicken, lemon, feta, roasted tomatoes, and shredded carrots. The recipe is quite simple, and the dish is a complete meal all-in-one, so it takes the guesswork out of what side dishes to prepare to ensure a balanced meal of protein, whole grains, and fresh veggies."

  1. Combine chicken stock and quinoa in a large pot over high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, pepper, and salt in a small bowl to make lemon dressing.
  3. Stir lemon dressing, chicken, water, diced tomatoes, feta cheese, half-and-half, carrots, pesto sauce, and oregano into the cooked quinoa. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thick and creamy, about 15 minutes. Spoon into individual bowls.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I use fully cooked frozen grilled chicken strips that I defrost in the microwave.

With Power Bowls on so many menus now, I wanted to try making this at home. I think it could use a sprinkle of red pepper flakes. I didn’t have feta on hand and when I make it again I’ll be sur...

I liked it a lot. . It has a really nice bright, lemony flavor. I had 10 minute quinoa which I took out of boil in bags and used as if regular quinoa. It worked fine
