  • 2 1/4 cups (560 mL) water
  • 1/2 tsp (3 mL) each  saltand black pepper (optional)
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) canola or  olive oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 1 lb/454 g)
  • 1 each  orange and yellow pepper, coarsely chopped

  1. Place quinoa, 2 cups (500 mL) of the water and half each of the salt and pepper, if using, in saucepan with tight-fitting lid and bring to boil. Reduce to simmer; cover and cook until liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.

  3. Add peppers, garlic, oregano and remaining salt and pepper, if using, to pan; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in soup, remaining ¼ cup (60 mL) water and vinegar. Stir in kale.
  4. Top vegetable mixture with chicken; simmer, covered, for 5 minutes until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender-crisp. Serve with quinoa.

Recipe tips

  • Serve with any starchy side dish in place of the quinoa, such as mashed potatoes, couscous or faro.
  • Replace the peppers with whatever sliced vegetables you have in the fridge, such as carrots, mushrooms or zucchini.
