Great recipe - my family all enjoyed this dish for dinner tonight. I love that it uses quinoa as it is a great change from rice and much better for protein and low GI too. Packed full of veges and very easy to make. I sliced the chicken and just placed it on top. All served hot. Photo also being posted
