I have this friend who swears by quinoa. I on the other hand had not had much experience with it. But in the spirit of trying to get more grains in my diet, I decided to give it a shot. And you know what? It’s delicious. It’s nutty and it pairs very nicely in this dish with black beans, chicken, bell peppers and cumin.
I had considered making this a vegetarian side dish but I had some chicken the I needed to use so I decided to add that in at that last minute. It made a very hearty one pot meal. With that said this could very easily be made vegetarian. Simply leave out the chicken and substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth. Simple as that.

I found your blog through a Google search for Walla Walla onion rings, and this chicken recipe was the first I tried. It is delicious! I baked bone-in breasts and put lime juice and garlic powder under the skins while they baked (then removed skins), and it was awesome. Yours is my new favorite food blog :)

Oh yum! I am on WW (doing the old Core program) and this would be perfect for tonight’s dinner.
I just bought quinoa last week and haven’t tried it. This is the recipe I will try it on.

I am so glad you tried quinoa, it’s lovely, isn’t it? I just recently tried it with black beans, it makes an unsual combo for me, unexepected.
