Ingredients

    10 oz chicken, cubed
    1c (dry) quinoa, cooked, plain
    1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
    1/4 orange bell pepper, chopped
    small onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    drizzle olive oil for saute
    Jamaican Jerk spice to taste
    turmeric to taste
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a small saucepan prepare quinoa according to package directions.
In a skillet, saute small onion in olive oil, salt, and pepper over med-high heat. When onions have browned slightly add garlic and saute for a minute. Add chopped peppers and cook until soft, and juices are released.
Add chicken and cook until juices run clear.
Add cooked quinoa and spice to taste.

(For better browning of chicken, remove juices, or add peppers after browning chicken and allow to cook until peppers are soft)

This recipe keeps well in a closed container in the refrigerator for several days. I normally make it last Mon-Fri. All it takes is a quick zap in the microwave to reheat!

    I'm really sorry, I didn't think anyone would stumble upon this! I realized I'd forgotten to add the chicken after I clicked the "done" button, but the measurement is 10oz... I wish I knew how to go back and edit... I looked for the link yesterday to no avail. Again, my apologies!
