What You Need
2 cup quinoa, uncooked
24 ounces cooked chicken

Boil quinoa in with 4 cups water. After reaching a raging boil, turn the heat down to medium-low. Allow quinoa to cook until only a slight amount of water is left. Pull quinoa from heat, and let stand covered for 10 minutes. Extra water will soak into the quinoa.

I have been looking for new ways to use quinoa. This sounds great. If you need more fat, you could add some velveeta to make this a creamy delight.
