Chicken Quinoa Faijta Bowl
It was as easy as me pulling a few key items from my stocked kitchen and in less than 30 minutes, dinner was on the table!
When I used my Instant Pot dinner was done in 12 minutes!!
This Chicken Quinoa Bowl comes together by mixing quinoa, Homemade Chicken Stock, salsa, frozen peppers and onions, chicken breasts, and taco seasoning together.
The toppings are endless, but I am a fan of freshly shredded cheddar cheese, Greek yogurt/Sour Cream, cilantro, and fresh tomatoes.
Thankfully, I am able to find all of these items at BJ’s Wholesale Club–from the frozen vegetables to the dried grains and pastas to the fresh meat and vegetables.
I absolutely love their Wellsley Farms brand and can often find quality, organic versions of many items off my shopping list. Not to mention BJ’s accepts manufacturer’s coupons–leaving me even more money to stock my pantry….or buy some extra dark chocolate to reward my healthy eating habits.
Regardless of what life throws my way, I am able to rest assure that dinner does not need to be something I stress over. Especially not when a few simple items I always have on hand come together to create such a family-pleasing meal.
