Chicken Quinoa Salad

INGREDIENTS

¼ cup uncooked quinoa

½ cup chicken broth

½ tsp pepper

½ onion chopped

½ tsp olive oil

½ tsp sugar

1 tbs lemon juice

1 boneless, skinless chicken breast – cooked and sliced.

DIRECTIONS

Combine quinoa, chicken broth and pepper in a pot and bring to a boil.

Lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. (Liquid is absorbed)

In a small skillet, caramelize the onion with the oil and sugar.

Stir onions into quinoa in the pot.

Add the lemon juice.

Cook on low, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes to blend the flavours.
