Crockpot Chicken and Quinoa

Crockpot Chicken and Quinoa

Introduction

One reason I really like this recipe is because it can be easily adapted. I think that mushrooms would make a great addition to this recipe. You can cut down on the meat used, or add more. If your family has a favorite herb, substitute that.

Ingredients

    1 cup quinoa (soaked overnight in water, than drained and rinsed in a strainer. If you donít soak your grains still rinse to remove a bitter substance from the grain)
    2 cups of chicken broth
    1/2-3/4 cup of white wine (amount depending on your taste and wine used)
    2 cups of water
    2 teaspoons dried thyme
    1 teaspoon of salt
    4-6 carrots, peeled and cubed
    3 celery, sliced
    1 onion, minced
    2 chicken breasts or thighs
    3 Tablespoons of butter (optional, for added richness and flavor) not included in the recipe calculator))

Directions

Throw all the ingredients in your crockpot, cook on high, 4 hours or on low, 8. Shred the chicken when done, and stir into the stew and you are done! How simple is that?
