Chicken Fried Quinoa

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil to the pan; swirl to coat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring often, for about 4 minutes. Add the bell pepper, scallions, garlic, and ginger to skillet and cook, stirring often, until the chicken is done and the vegetables are just tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer the chicken mixture to a plate and wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel.

Step 2

Heat the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil in the same skillet over medium. Add the quinoa and edamame and cook, stirring constantly, until thoroughly heated, about 2 minutes. Push the quinoa mixture to the side of the skillet. Add the egg to opposite side of the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, until scrambled, about 1 minute; stir in the quinoa mixture. Add the chicken mixture and soy sauce to the skillet and cook, stirring often, until thoroughly heated, about 1 minute.
