Happy (almost) New Year! I’m Andi from The Weary Chef, and I’m very excited to share a dinner recipe with you today. If we haven’t met, easy dinners are my favorite kind of recipe, and I write new ones every week. While some of my recipes might have more than their fair share of cheese, I generally try to keep them pretty healthy, especially this time of year!
If you’re like me, cookies and candy have been a major food group for the past month or so and don’t even get me started about eggnog lattes. (LOVE those things!) I definitely have some healthy eating ahead of me to recover from all the holiday treats, and this BBQ Chicken Quinoa Skillet is a good start. It’s loaded with flavor, quick to throw together even on a busy weeknight, and tastes like comfort food!
I used shredded rotisserie chicken in this recipe, but you could use any leftover chicken or cook two boneless, skinless chicken breasts and shred them. If you are cooking chicken for this recipe, I would season it with a bit of Cajun seasoning. I hope you love this one as much as we did. Have a wonderful 2015!
