Servings: 2 people


  • 1 Boneless/skinless chicken breast Cooked (see cooking instructions below or use rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 cup Quinoa Cooked (see cooking instructions below, or use premade 90-second quinoa)
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup crispy fried onions
  • 1 ear corn cut in half and cooked. Or use 1/2 cup frozen corn.


  • 1/2 cup dry quinoa
  • 1 cups water


To Cook Quinoa

  • Rinse quinoa for about 30 seconds.
  • Combine quinoa and water in saucepan and bring to a boil. Decrease heat to low and cook until quinoa has absorbed all of the water.

To Cook The Chicken

  • Coat chicken in olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic salt and 1 pressed garlic clove (or a dash of garlic salt). Bake until done. Time will vary depending on size of chicken breast.
    Alternatively, pan fry the chicken breast or cook it in a slow cooker.

To Assemble The Bowl

  • To assemble bowls -divide quinoa between two bowls, and divide toppings between the bowls-chicken, bbq sauce, fried onions and corn. Enjoy!


For more flavor, you can cook your quinoa in chicken stock or 1 tsp. Better than Bullion instead of water.
