  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Bring chicken broth and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and broth is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  3. Spread sweet potato and red onion onto a baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over mixture and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until sweet potatoes are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir 2 cloves garlic and ginger until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces.
  6. Whisk 1 garlic clove, lime juice, peanut butter, soy sauce, and honey together in a bowl. Whisk 1 tablespoon olive oil and sesame oil into mixture until dressing is smooth.
  7. Divide quinoa among bowls; top with chicken, sweet potato mixture, spinach, and avocado. Sprinkle cilantro and sesame seeds over the top and drizzle dressing over each bowl.

This Buddha bowl is wonderful! I made it exactly as written, except I didn't have an avocado, but the flavors balance perfectly together. I made sure to use fresh lime juice, because the concent...

Wow, delicious! I left out the ginger and the lime to make it less scary for two 9 yr olds, everyone loved it.

I've made this several times to rave reviews! I have adjusted the peanut sauce...less lime juice I think. But it is a real winner with men and women for lunch or dinner. Love it!

I liked this recipe. It was easy, and took us less than an hour. I added sriracha to the sauce to give it a more balanced flavor. This bowl would really be good with any sauce you'd like.

This is one awesome Buddha Bowl! I actually didn't know what to expect with it, but loved everything about it! So many favorite parts -- the quinoa was delicious and perfectly cooked. The chicke...

Delicious flavor and fresh ingredients. Love the peanut sauce.

I made this pretty much as written. I loved it as did my husband. I may try it with some other grain like barley or farro. A great base recipe from which you can make changes as per your taste. ...

No changes--perfect and delicious!

Very simple to make and quite delicious. I did not use sesame seeds and placed the spinach in the bowl first. Will be making this again!
