Serves: 6-8 servings
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets and finely chopped
  • 2-3 cups cooked shredded chicken (you could use a rotisserie chicken)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garlic powder, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • ⅓ cup Greek yogurt
  • ⅓ cup Panko crumbs (found on the bread crumb aisle)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13" baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large saucepan of 2 cups water, cook quinoa according to package instructions. Within the last 5 minutes of cooking time, add broccoli on top and steam until cooked through.
  3. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in quinoa, broccoli, chicken, 1 cup cheese and Greek yogurt; season with garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Spread broccoli mixture into the prepared 9x13" baking pan; sprinkle with remaining ½ cup cheese. Place into oven and bake until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, sprinkled with Panko, if desired.
