Healthy Chicken “Fried” Quinoa
I loooooove my chinese food and I loooooove my quinoa…so why not just bring these 2 wonderful things together?! This is a fairly easy recipe and it makes for great left overs. Enough with the chit chat…lets get to it!
Get all of your ingredients out.
Trim the fat off of the chicken breasts and cut the breasts into bite-size cubes
Combine all “chicken ingredients” in a bowl to make a sauce and mix well.
Pour cubed chicken into bowl and toss around in the mixture until well coated.
Add olive oil to a pan and pour the entire bowl contents into the pan.
Cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes. Toss every few minutes with a large spoon/spatula to make sure all sides of the chicken are nice and brown.
While the chicken is still cooking, spray a wok/pan with pam and cook egg whites on medium heat until brown. This should only take a few minutes. “Scramble” them up while cooking so they are in pieces.
Prepare all of the vegetables in a large bowl.
Add egg whites to the vegetables. Coat a wok/pan with 1/2 tsp wok oil/sesame oil/olive oil and saute the vegetables/egg whites on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Combine all other “vegetable ingredients” (not additional oil) into a bowl and stir well. Pour into the wok/pan with the vegetables and saute for 5 minutes on medium heat.
Pour the cooked chicken and quinoa into the same wok/pan with the vegatables/egg whites and mix well. Cook on medium heat for 5-10 minutes to bring all the flavors together.
Serve and enjoy!
