Today I'm sharing an easy recipe perfect for a busy weeknight! If you're in the market for simple, delicious and wholesome - you really should try this Mustard Chicken Bowl with Quinoa!
Years ago, before I had children and a cake business and a blog and a homeschool... I was a lot more adventurous when it came to cooking. I'm talking almost 20 years ago - when we lived in Idaho and were newlyweds!
That's the first time I had Quinoa... and I really liked it! Fast forward and about 5 years ago, I had it again in the form of pasta and I fell in love all over again (have you guys tried Quinoa Pasta? It looks and tastes like regular pasta except whole grain and gluten-free!).
Anyway... that's why when I saw this recipe, I knew it would be a good one! Chicken, quinoa, a little kick of mustard and then fresh veggies!! So delish!
If that's not reason enough to try this recipe - then consider this: it's super-duper easy for those busy weeknights as you get back into school routines or hurry home from work and need a filling meal in a hurry. This meal can come together in as little as 30 minutes! That's my kind of cooking!
