  • 2 tablespoons - vegetable oil
  • 2 - boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • - salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cups - broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cups - olive oil
  • 3/4 cups - buffalo hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoons - garlic powder
  • 3 cups - cooked quinoa (red or any other variety)
  • 1 cups - cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 cups - carrots, shredded

  • Directions:

    In a large skillet add vegetable oil, chicken, salt and pepper, and sauté over medium-high heat until chicken is just cooked through, about 5 minutes.

    Add broccoli and sauté an additional 3-4 minutes or until broccoli starts to soften, but is still al dente.

    In a small bowl combine olive oil, buffalo sauce, and garlic powder. Stir in about half of dressing mixture into chicken, and cook until mostly absorbed, about 5 minutes.

    In a large bowl, add chicken mixture, quinoa, carrots, cabbage, blue cheese crumbles, green onions, and dressing, and toss well until evenly combined.

    Serve with additional blue cheese crumbles and green onions, and enjoy!
