Loading...

In this easy one-pot chicken recipe, chicken, quinoa, mushrooms and spinach nestle together for a healthy meal with minimal clean-up.



I finally mustered the wherewithal to pull together this one-pot chicken recipe, which fits the bill when you want to minimize clean-up responsibilities. Seriously, I was pathetic this week!

Dinner on the table, massive clean-up averted and laziness rewarded.

Ingredients
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • 3/4 tsp crushed, dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 8 oz. crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups low-fat chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced spinach leaves
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions
  1. Place the chicken thighs in a medium bowl. Add the rosemary, smoked paprika, salt and pepper, and toss to coat the chicken.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil in the skillet. Add the onion and mushrooms, and cook until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Stir the quinoa and broth into the vegetables. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Nestle the chicken into the quinoa, and cook (covered) until the liquid is absorbed and the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes (total of 30 minutes).
  5. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Stir the spinach into the quinoa. Serve with the chicken. Season to taste.
