Cheesy Broccoli and Chicken Quinoa

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 2 large chicken breasts, diced into cubes or shredded
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth, plus a few extra tablespoons if needed
  • 2 heaping cups of broccoli, chopped
  • 1 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
  • SP to taste


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the chicken and the onion in the olive oil for 405 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked on the outside. Dont worry about cooking it all the way through yet since it will be on the stove for quite a bit longer.
  2. Add in the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  3. Add in the dry quinoa, stir together, and let the quinoa toast for 2-3 minutes and then stir in the broth. Reduce to a simmer and cook covered for 10 minutes.
  4. Stir in the broccoli and cook covered for an additional 7-10 minutes or until the broccoli and quinoa are both tender. If the liquid is all gone but the quinoa is not quite done yet, add in a few additional tablespoons of broth (or water).
  5. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Give the mixture a stir and then pour the cheese evenly over the top. Keep the skillet over the heat until the cheese is fully melted.
  7. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
  8. ENJOY!!
