Here’s a fantastic, healthy, tasty and easy weeknight meal.  It’s full of veges and my kids loved it.  You could add some fresh or dried herbs, or sprinkle with a bit of parmesan before serving.  The best thing is, it’s really filling, but comes in at just 317 calories per serve.  Mix it up with sausage instead of chicken – delicious!

Get your veges from Charlie’s!

Ingredients (serves 4)
olive oil spray
400g chicken breast, sliced
1 brown onion, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon tomato paste
150g red capsicum, diced
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
400g tin diced tomatoes
1 carrot, grated
100g quinoa
1 cup vegetable stock

Method
Bring vegetable stock to a boil over medium heat.  Add quinoa and simmer, covered, for about 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed and curly “tails” appear on the grains.

Meanwhile, heat a medium saucepan or frying pan over medium heat.  Spray with olive oil.  Add onion and garlic and cook for a few minutes, until soft.  Add chicken and cook until browned.  Add tomato paste and stir through with capsicum, mushrooms, tomatoes and carrot.  Cook for a further 5 minutes, until vegetables are soft.

Mix through the quinoa and serve.
