In my search for more ways to use Quinoa, I was trying to think of a way to use it in a casserole type dish.  A kind of “one dish wonder”. I recently purchased a bottle of GuyFieri’s Asian BBQ sauce and fell madly in love. In a spur of the moment, throw together last minute meal option, I came up with this amazing one dish wonder!! My family all loved it. I decided to take it to our annual Homeschool moving up ceremony, but I served it as a dip with tostitos to make it last longer. The reviews were all wonderful! This will definitely become a favorite 🙂 PS. no one even notices the cauliflower and carrots!! SCORE! 🙂

In a large skillet heat up the EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and butter together over medium high heat.

Add the chopped cauliflower and carrots. Let them cook till cauliflower starts to slightly brown.

Add chicken and place lid over top for 5minutes to steam the veggies.

I took my smasher and chopped the veggies even more, so there werent any large chunks left. *Easier to pass by the little eyes of my kiddies hehe 😉

Now add the Quinoa.

Next add the cream cheese and yogurt. Mix around until all melted together.

Now add the sauces!! Stir all together.

Spread the yumminess into a greased 8×8 pan.

Top with the shredded cheese and pop in the oven.

Bake for about 10-15minutes or until the cheese in melted and slightly brown on top.

Top with sliced green onions! (I forgot mine in the picture!)

Serve warm or room temp. I served with tostitos, but some sliced baguettes would be wonderful too. I have also used this as a meal too! 🙂

Enjoy! and let me know what you think!

HAPPY COOKING!! 🙂
