  • Combine 1 cup chicken broth and quinoa in a small pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until chicken broth is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir sweet onion until softened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken; cook and stir until no longer pink, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in cooked quinoa, remaining 1 cup chicken broth, black beans, prepared salsa, chili powder, and garlic. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.

  • Remove skillet from heat. Squeeze lime juice all over. Divide among serving bowls. Top each serving with homemade salsa and 1 avocado half. Season with salt and pepper.
