DIRECTIONS

  • Sauté chicken breasts using the butter. Slice into fajita size strips or dice.
  • Rinse the quinoa.
  • Bring water to boil, add quinoa, bring back to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for about 12 min or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Dice veggies and garlic.
  • In a pan bring olive oil up to temperature using high heat. Add onions stir quickly to coat with oil. Don't let them brown.
  • Add garlic and stir again.
  • Add diced peppers and stir.
  • Reduce heat to low and sweat them for about 15 minutes.
  • When the veggies are finished, drain if necessary, and mix with the pesto sauce.
  • Serve by putting a serving of quinoa on a plate, top with veggie and pesto mix, then put chicken on and top with feta.
  • If you prefer you can do this without the chicken and my family finds it delicious.
