Ingredients

    2 cups cooked cubed or shredded chicken
    1 cup chopped carrots
    1 cup chopped celery
    1 cup chopped mushrooms
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/2 bag of frozen peas, thawed
    1/2 bag of frozen broccoli, thawed
    2 Tbs olive oil
    1 Tbs unsalted butter
    2 cloves minced garlic
    6 cups low sodium chicken broth
    2 cups water
    3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
    1tsp thyme
    1 tsp basil

Tips

You can do as I do and cook two large chicken breasts in boiling water. When done, debone, remove skin, and chop or shred. Add only 4 cups of prepared chicken broth to the broth made by the boiling chicken. Add up to 2 cups of water if needed. This is less expensive than having to buy extra broth and canned chicken.


Directions

Saute carrots, onions,and celery in oil and butter over medium heat about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic, saute an additional 5 minutes. Pour broth and water into large pot, bring to a boil. Add in sauteed veggies, broccoli, peas, quinoa, basil, and thyme. Continue boiling for 30 minutes. During last 5 minutes add in cooked chicken. Serve hot.
