I am in LOVE with quinoa lately.  Dare I admit that I was just recently (about a year ago) introduced to it?  I’m sure many of you are far more familiar with it than I, but I just LOVE it.  I’m using it at least weekly, if not more often.

If you wanted (though I don’t recommend it), you can replace the quinoa with rice.

I’ve adapted this recipe from one I found over at Picky Palate back in January:

Healthy and Hearty Chicken Quinoa Stew
