Fried Chicken Quinoa

This healthy version of Chinese Fried Rice is a favorite in our house.  I found this super easy recipe on Pinterest and as I began to add more quinoa to our diet instead of rice and pasta, I decided to modify the recipe.  Turns out we loved it even more and I am happy to have yet another way to get this healthy protein into our weekly meals.

A quick note on the veggies in this dish.  You can really use anything your family likes.  I often grab a frozen mixed veggie pack from Aldi, but this particular time I used a bunch of green veggies we had in the fridge.  This version has snap peas, green beans and broccoli, but you can really make it however you like.

Enjoy!!
