unusal blend of flavors, very tasty. Used 2/3 cup canned chick peas, as it doesn't specify canned or dry. Also used 3 whole boneless breasts, or 6 pieces, which also was not specified. But even my son who is suspicious of quinoa came back for seconds.

I doubled the quinoa, oj, water, salsa, and soy (low sodium) and cut the chicken into cubes...I'd say cook more for 6 hours or until chicken is cooked through but it seems like 8 hours would have made this too mushy. Very unusual combination but so good.
