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.

This was a great comfort meal. I made some changes to the recipe. I doubled the amount of quinoa, salsa, OJ and water, and replaced the peanut butter with Almond Butter. I'm going to make this again this week!

This was good. I was looking for ways to use my crockpot and quinoa. I used a whole can of chickpeas and in place of the salsa, I used a can of spicy diced tomatoes with chilis. I used half of a red onion, 1.5 tsp of cinnamon and worcestershire sauce in place of the soy sauce because upon inspection my soy sauce was REALLY old! I served with some shredded cheese, green onion and cilantro.
