  • 3 cups chicken broth

  • 1 ½ cups quinoa

  • 1 large sweet potato, diced

  • 1 large red onion, diced

  • ÂĽ cup olive oil, divided

  • kosher salt to taste

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, divided

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • ÂĽ cup lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 2 cups baby spinach

  • 1 avocado - peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


  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.
