Chicken Verde Quinoa Casserole
1 lb chicken breast, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 cup quinoa, rinsed
2 cups black beans (canned, drained and rinsed)
2 yellow squash or zucchini, chopped
8 oz mushrooms, quartered
4-oz can green chilies, drained
3/4 cup salsa Verde
1 tbs chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 cups chicken broth, low-sodium
2 cups peppers and onions, frozen
1 cup jack cheese, grated
Optional: avocado, hot sauce, cilantro, and green onions for serving
Preheat oven to 375°.
Spray a large casserole dish with oil. In the dish, mix together chicken, quinoa, black beans, yellow squash, mushrooms, chilies, salsa, spices, salt, and pepper.
Pour broth over the top, which helps move the quinoa to the bottom to cook through. Top with frozen peppers and onions.
Cover and place in the oven for 30 min. Remove lid and sprinkle cheese over the top. Place back in the oven and bake for another 30 min.
Let sit for 10 min so the liquids can finish absorbing, then serve with desired garnishes. Serves 6
