Chicken ‘fried rice’ quinoa (gluten free/ thm)

Is anyone else a big quinoa fan? I totally am but I fall into a quinoa rut a lot.

My goal this month, because I am working on eating more carbs (E meals for those of you on the Trim Healthy Mama plan) to help my adrenals, is to experiment with quinoa more.

I also tend to make too much quinoa at a setting so I have been freezing it in single servings so I will have instantly ready carbs to make a lunch or dinner.

I think quinoa sometimes needs to be an acquired taste and one thing that has helped me is that I cook it in bone broth. Bone broth is one of my favorite daily things that I have added to my diet to help with gut health.

If you have trouble finding quinoa locally, Amazon (affiliate link) sells it here.

This dish comes together fast and I love it because it has a nice hefty dose of veggies. I add lots of cabbage, carrots and onions because they are cheap, filling and super good for you. It stretches out the meal so well!

I also like to use (affiliate link) coconut aminos.  in place of soy sauce or Bragg’s because I avoid soy.

To save money as well, I like to make whole chicken, like this, and then freeze the extra portions to pull out for  quick meals. This is a time saver as well!

And for my allergy friendly people, this dish is gluten, dairy and egg free.

Chicken 'fried rice' quinoa (gluten free/ thm)
  • 2 cups of cooked quinoa (I like to do this in bone broth
  • 2 cups of cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1 head of cabbage, shredded
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 3 peeled and sliced carrots
  • 1 cup of chicken broth (with fat skimmed off)
  • ¼ cup coconut aminos
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • salt to taste
  1. To steam veggies, put broth in a pan, add the veggies, put a cover on it and let them go on low until lightly cooked. (I like mine crunchy)
  2. Add the cooked quinoa, chicken, spices, and coconut aminos.
  3. Stir and let cook for a few minutes to let the flavor mingle
  4. Add salt if needed.

This is an easy peasy E meal. I love that has an Asian flavor so it is a fun meal! (This is another easy meal that is Asian inspired as well!)
