Chicken & Quinoa

I pilfered this recipe from Jun! It was from our winter break feasting (one of em’, anyway; if you want more of where this came from, just go after the “6F” tag! :]). I have a crap ton of studying up ahead and can’t afford to spend time blogging, so these are all scheduled posts until June/part of July is over. (Then mayhaps I can begin to live again.)

I transcribed most of this from an email and left parts of it untouched for your [well, mine] entertainment.

Chicken & Quinoa

-1 onion, chopped
-5+ cloves garlic, minced
-1/8 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
-2 cups quinoa
-4 cups chicken/vegetable stock or water
-“bell peppers or whatever”
-1 lb. chicken, cubed
-sea salt, to taste
-freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1) Cook sun dried tomatoes (they’re usually in oil already, so no need to use extra oil!). Cook onions + garlic til translucent.
2) Add chicken until they’re mostly cooked, then add quinoa and water.
3) Bring to boil and then turn it down to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes.
4) Add bell peppers at the end and let it steam with the stove off.
5) MIX AND EAT YEAHHH. You can also add whatever spices you’d like (e.g. cumin, curry powder, coriander, chili powder, etc.)!
