  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.

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...

Yum! It turned out great! The hubby went back for seconds. The only change i made is that I added fresh cucumber and we grilled the chicken. Will make again!

This was excellent! I was a little skeptical with the sweet potatoes and chicken but I was blown away how well all of these flavors worked together and brought about a flavorful and healthy meal...

I love this recipe. I make ahead for the week and never get sick of it!

This was delicious- love the sauce! I omitted the chicken and used vegetable broth to make it vegan. I sauteed the spinach with the ginger and garlic for 1 minute to wilt it. The only change I...
