I have to admit that only really great stir fry recipes appeal to me. While I love the fresh vegetables that come with stir fry recipes, I am not a huge fan of oriental cooking. Still, when I came across a chicken stir fry recipes recently, I decided to try making quinoa stir fry. I’m always up for a new way of cooking quinoa and am eager to try healthy recipes!
One of the best things about stir fry recipes is that they are most always healthy!
I got the inspiration for this dish from Jillian Michael’s new book, The Master Your Metabolism Cookbook. If you haven’t already gotten it, it’s a great cookbook that I highly recommend! (It has two great quinoa recipes to try. I love the breakfast Quinoa Berry Crunch! Yummm!) The original stir fry recipe does not have as much kick and used rice (horrors!) rather than quinoa. I really liked the crunchiness that the quinoa added to this stir fry recipe. I think is is much better than the original would have been. (Not to mention – healthier on most counts!)
So, give this chicken and vegetable stir fry recipe a shot! Who knows – it just may become one of your favorite quinoa recipes!
My husband really loves this recipe because he is a hug fan of asparagus recipes. Since I didn’t grow up eating asparagus, I tend to not cook it as often as he would like. Because of this, this recipe has become one of his favorite ways of cooking with quinoa. Have more chicken stir fry recipes that would make a great quinoa salad? I’d love to hear from you!
