Tessa's Recipe Rundown...
Taste: Mouthwatering! Perfect combination of Asian inspired flavors.
Texture: I love the texture of quinoa, especially combined with the crispness of the veggies and the tenderness of the cubes of chicken.
Ease: There is a lot of prep work involved: chopping all the vegetables, grilling the chicken breast, and cooking the quinoa before you can even start to make this dish. However, all those steps are simple.
Appearance: Anything that has an array of colors is attractive to me.
Expense: Quinoa can be expensive, especially packaged in a regular grocery store. But if you head over to your local Whole Foods or the equivalent and purchase the Quinoa in bulk its half the price. Vegetables can get expensive too, but I think of it as an investment in my body’s health.
Pros: This can be made on the weekend and eaten for lunch during the week (you could double the recipe) because it keeps well in the fridge.
Cons: I can’t think of one.
Would I make this again? Most definitely.
