Healthy (And Yummy) Chicken And Peas Quinoa

Julie Ann Keene


To save time you can use a store-bought rotisserie chicken though this is also a fantastic way to use up leftover turkey. A healthy and hearty weeknight dinner! Culinary argan oil (not to be confused with skincare grade) adds a rich nutty flavor (you can also use toasted sesame oil). Low cal and high protein!
