Makes: four servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry quinoa
  • 3 cups broccoli
  • 1 lb grilled chicken breast
  • 1 ½ tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 ⅓ cups milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup greek yogurt

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking dish.

  2. Prepare quinoa according to package instructions. Cut broccoli into florets. In the last 5 minutes of cooking, add broccoli on top and let steam until cooked through, adding more water if needed.

  3. Meanwhile, shred chicken into bite-size pieces.

  4. Melt butter in the 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 minutes.

  5. Stir in quinoa, broccoli, chicken, 6 oz shredded cheddar and greek yogurt. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread mixture into the prepared dish and sprinkle with remaining 2 oz shredded cheddar. Place into oven and bake until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.

  6. Divide onto plates and enjoy!
