  1. Made today, first time, after searching for a chicken & quinoa dish. I didn't think there were enough directions provided for the quinoa. So, I followed directions on the package, which meant rinsing raw quinoa & covering it while simmering. I added about 1/2 c. leftover canned black beans I had. I also use a very low sodium broth so have to add fresh ground pink Himalayan salt back in. I didn't think there was enough broth so added about another cup with the chicken. Also used dried parsley, not fresh. This was a tasty recipe & a great alternative to chicken & rice soup.
  2. Very tasty and very easy to make. I sometimes add a can of chickpeas or white kidney beans to it.


<p>My rating system: (I don't like giving bad reviews, so if I don't like it, I'll just not review it.) <br /><br />5 Stars OMG, this is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
