Garlic Chicken With Quinoa

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by TajLV

I based this quick and easy stir-fry recipe on a recommendation from Trader Joe's. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a South American grain, lower in carbohydrates and higher in protein and fat than white rice.

So good! I didn't have basil so I used fresh spinach. Awesome! I also cut the olive oil back to 3T. I will make again! Want to try it with the basil.
