Mexican Chicken & Quinoa

I wanted to try something a little different recently and came up with this. It’s probably not terribly original but it was sure yummy!

Here are my unscientific directions:

Place chicken breast in a glass baking dish–add a little bit of water to the dish (1/4 – 1/2 c),  Sprinkle with cumin, salt, pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder (to taste)

Slice an onion, a red pepper, & a green pepper. Lay veggie slices over the chicken breast.

Bake 350 F until chicken is done. Then turn up the heat a little 400 for a few minutes to “grill” the veggies. Keep an eye on it and remove when veggies look done to you.

Meanwhile, cook quinoa according to package directions.

Slice chicken breasts into strips and stir chicken and veggies together. Serve over quinoa and top with cheddar cheese and cilantro. A sprinkle of salt and squeeze of lime juice is heavenly!

 

Mmmm! A little like chicken fajitas with a lot less work.
