Ingredient Checklist

Directions

  • Pour tomatoes and water into the skillet with the chicken; bring to a boil. Stir in quinoa and cilantro. Cook until quinoa is tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 15 minutes; the dish should look thick and saucy. Spread an even layer of Cheddar cheese on top.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Place skillet into oven and melt Cheddar cheese under the broiler until bubbly and golden, 2 to 3 minutes; be sure to watch carefully to prevent burning.

The texture and consistency is good but a bit lacking in flavors. Not exactly sure what it needs. This was my first time cooking with quinoa so I appreciate the recipe. Read More

I started following the recipe as is but noticed that the temperature needed to be lowered because most of the cooking liquid had cooked away and the quinoa wasn t cooked. I lowered the temp added another 1/2 to 1 cup of water and added another 5 minutes. It definitely helped. Overall this wasn t a recipe that I would try again. It wasn t to our taste. Read More
