2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa.
  • Cut the tomatoes into quarters.
In a small sauce pot, combine the quinoa and ½ cup [1 cup] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, stir in the tomatoes, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm.
While the quinoa cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the onion.


Prep and caramelize the onion

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
In a medium frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the onion cooks, prepare the broccoli and finish the dish.


Prep and cook the broccoli; finish the dish

  • Cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets; trim any coarse stems.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the broccoli and ¼ cup [⅓ cup] water, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli starts to soften, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the caramelized onion and cilantro, and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the broccoli and quinoa to individual plates. Top the quinoa with the chicken, drizzle the diablo glaze over the chicken, and serve.
