Quinoa, a high-protein grain, is perfect when you need to cook up something fast and healthy. This dish has a balance of protein, carbs, and fats to provide much-needed nutrition for a busy mom. Use any kind of leftover chicken, or buy a preroasted chicken at your natural foods market. If you prefer, substitute fresh blueberries or sliced red grapes for the currants.
- Combine quinoa and broth in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes.
- Add remaining ingredients to pot and stir to combine. Let mixture sit for a few minutes to allow flavors to blend. Serve warm, or refrigerate and eat throughout the day as a quick snack.
