This is from Women's Health Magazine (Jan/Feb 2007 issue). The title of the article this was included in was, "One-Pot Wonders." This sounds delish, can be modified to your liking, and can be made vegetarian by using a veggie broth/stock in place of the chicken and veggie-meat in place of the turkey, which is what I'll be doing. Healthy, filling, and yummy all around! P.S. the recipe editor thing is being weird and it keeps erasing the amount of garlic cloves...the amount is 2 cloves of garlic., not zero like the recipe ingredients indicate.

Awesome. I used portabello mushrooms instead & salsa to spice it up.

This was surprisingly good. I had a leftover rotisserie chicken, so I shredded it and used that. My husband also loves mushrooms, so I used 2 cups and left out the squash. I also used 2 cups of chicken broth. I only had parmesan cheese, so I used that instead. Was delish. Almost all gone and there's just the 2 of us.

We like quinoa but this recipe was pretty bland. I would definitely suggest adding more squash and more spices but it will not be a repeat for us.
