I mean, honestly, I don’t know any women who just have oodles of time on their hands, but for those of us who would do anything for an extra hour in each day and an extra day in each week, this recipe is for you!

  • Prep Time5 min
  • Cook Time30 min
  • Total Time35 min
  • Serving Size4 – 1 Cup Servings (or 8 – ½ Cup Servings)

    Ingredients

    • 1 lb ground chicken
    • 1 16oz jar of organic, sugar-free salsa (I used Casa Mamita Organic Double Fire Roasted Salsa from ALDI)
    • 2 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/2 - 1 tsp Slap Ya Mama seasoning (varies by palate. If you like a bit more kick, go with the full teaspoon...or more if you like!)
    • 1/2 cup organic quinoa
    • 1 cup water

    Directions

    1

    Add the ground chicken to a skillet (preferably a deeper skillet that also has a lid) and season with the garlic and Slap Ya Mama seasoning. Once fully cooked, add the jar of salsa and stir into the meat.

    2

    Add the quinoa and water and stir together well. Make sure that the quinoa gets mixed in well.

    3

    Cover the skillet and, on medium heat (between 4 & 5 on my stove), let it simmer for 15-20 minutes.

    4

    Check the dish and the tenderness of the quinoa. The sauce should have thickened up while the quinoa was cooking.
