Chicken Quinoa Stir Fry

Today I created a Healthy and Easy quick-lunch recipe.  I wanted to the taste of one of my favorite Chinese Restaurants, but I know that im not able to eat that on my diet.  I had some left over Quinoa in the fridge and did not want that to go to waste, so I put on my thinking cap and came up with this light recipe.

  • 1-2 Cups of Quinoa
  • 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 20 Asparagus Cut
  • 3 tsp Light Soy Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp Stir Fry Sauce
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic
  • 1-2 tsp Lemon Juice

Cook Quinoa as directed on package.

Cut up Chicken thighs into bite size piece.  Pour Olive Oil into a skillet, and add in garlic.  Sautee for 2-3 mins and then add in Chicken.  Brown the chicken pieces untill no longer pink.  Add in cut up asparagus, and Quinoa and cook an additional 5 mins on med.  Once the asparagus are tender, add Soy Sauce and Stir Fry Sauce, and cook for 5 mins. Before taking off the stove add in 2 tsp of lemon juice and stir and Enjoy.
