Menu Monday: Baked Chicken, Quinoa, and Broccoli

This is week six of a six week Menu Monday trial period.....I've gotten very little feedback, which means no more Menu Monday! Sad, I know, but also somewhat of a freedom for me. rest assured though, I'll still post some recipes, they just won't be as regular.
In fact, I'm in the middle of creating a super duper yummy THM approved recipe....

Today's Menu Monday is super simple, because we've been sick, and I kept forgetting to take pictures of my food. In fact, this picture was taken of the leftovers from this meal, that I just pulled out of the fridge and arranged on a plate for the picture. There wasn't any leftover broccoli,  which is why there isn't any in the picture. This is real life y'all.
Oh, by the way, this is a THM approved 'E' meal.

Baked Chicken:

Ingredients:
Chicken breasts (however much your family will eat)
Salt
Pepper
Garlic Powder
Chives

Place chicken in a pan, and sprinkle with spices. I use dried chives, but I'm sure fresh would be even tastier. Bake at 350* until cooked through. This would be about 2 hours from frozen, or 45 minutes to an hour from thawed.

Quinoa:

Ingredients:
Quinoa
Water

The size of your family will depend on the amount of quinoa that you cook. The ratio of water to quinoa is 2 cups water to 1 cup quinoa. Place water and quinoa in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Once a boil is reached, stir quinoa and cover with a lid. Turn down to low, and continue cooking for about 15 minutes.

Broccoli:

Ingredients:
Whole broccoli florets
Water

Again, the amount you cook depends on how many you are feeding. Wash broccoli and cut into bite size pieces. Place in a pan and cover bottom of pan with several inches of water. Cover with a lid and cook on high until broccoli is tender, but not mushy, around 5-10 minutes.


For your children, (and yourself, if desiring a crossover meal) serve butter to slather the broccoli and quinoa with. Yum!

  1. I love simple. :) Hey, I've found that I can do quinoa in my rice cooker! I make big batches and freeze them in serving size baggies.

    Thanks for linking up at Trim Healthy Tuesday, and I'm looking forward to your upcoming recipes!
