Chicken Sautee with Quinoa

I was inspired by my sister in law Ali Cameron to make this dish. She made it when we were visiting the inlaws and I loved it. I made a few changes to the recipe, but I have to give credit to her for the original recipe and the inspiration. She has a wonderful blog if you would like to follow her. fitformotherhood.blogspot

Chicken Sautee with Quinoa

Sesame Oil
Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 lb Chicken breast cut into chunks
Red Bell Pepper cut into strips
Yellow onion cut into strips
Fresh Mushrooms
Bunch of Kale
Quinoa (cook following directions on box or bag)

Heat tbsp of oil in pan. Add chicken and a dash of soy sauce, cook chicken until done, add onion and bell pepper and sautee until tender, next add mushrooms, sautee until warm, add as much Kale as you would like torn into pieces,add a little more soy sauce and sautee until Kale is still green and begins to soften. Remove from heat and serve over cooked quinoa. It is amazing!! You can also serve this on a wrap that has a tiny bit of hummus on it. I prefer Ezekial wraps or Flat Out Bread. This is such a quick and easy meal and my kids love it. Vegetarians, you can substitute the chicken for Tempah which is how I had the meal the first time I had it.
