Jumping on the Casserole, One-Pot Band Wagon
Cashew Chicken Quinoa Bake. You literally throw everything in a casserole dish UNCOOKED (even the chicken and quinoa) and pop it in the oven for 60 minutes. Genius right? Thank you to Fit Foodie Finds for this beauty of a recipe!
1 cup quinoa, rinsed and uncooked
1 cup yellow onion, minced
2 medium red peppers, chopped into bite-sized pieces
4 4oz chicken breasts, diced into bite-sized pieces
½ cup hoisen sauce
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari (low sodium)
½ tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1 cup water
1 cup cashews, roasted and slightly salted
green onion for garnish
First, preheat oven to 375ºF and spray a casserole dish with coconut oil cooking spray.
Next, place 1 cup uncooked quinoa on the bottom of the casserole dish and layer on diced onion and red pepper on top. Place sliced chicken on top of veggies.
Prep sauce by mixing together hoisen sauce, minced garlic, soy sauce, fresh ginger, and 1 cup of water. I used a fork to whisk everything together.
Evenly pour sauce over chicken chicken breast.
Bake at 375º for 45 minutes, uncovered. Remove from oven and add 1 cup of cashews and bake for another 10 minutes.
ENJOY MY PEOPLE!!
