Get ready for a flavorful journey with our Chicken and Quinoa Skillet recipe! This dish is packed with protein, nutrients and fiber to keep you full throughout the day.
Start by heating up a tablespoon of organic coconut oil in a generously sized skillet. As the oil heats up, add in the diced chicken tenderloins. While the seasonings and chicken start to sizzle, cut up your vegetables.
Next, introduce the diced onion and red pepper to your skillet. As they sauté, they add a depth of flavor and a burst of color to the mix. The garlic follows suit, infusing the dish with its aromatic notes and rounding out the savory profile.
Time for a touch of a white wine. Pour it in and watch as it deglazes the pan, bringing all those delicious flavors together. As the wine reduces, it leaves behind a complexity that elevates the entire dish.
Moving on, add the quinoa/brown rice blend. This will bring a nutty flavor and wholesome goodness to the mix. After you add it to the skillet, the grains will absorb the flavors and become the canvas for the rest of the ingredients.
Finally, incorporate a splash of chicken broth. This will elevate your meal with a hearty richness and savory notes to this chicken and quinoa dish.
