Shop Kitchen ▾
  • 2 1/4 cups water
  • 1 cup quinoa (any color)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili oil (optional)
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 sweet onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. In a medium lidded saucepan, bring 2 cups water, the quinoa and 1/2 tsp salt to a boil over high. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk peanut butter, 1/4 cup water, 2 tbsp lime juice, the soy sauce and sugar until blended. Add chili oil, if using.
