Chicken and Quinoa Bake
Quinoa, chicken and vegetables cooked in a creamy tomato sauce and topped with cheese. A great family dish.
Amy @ Feeding Finn
(2 cups) passata
cooked shredded chicken
(1 cup) frozen peas
(1 cup) grated mozzarella
Pre heat oven to 170c / 350F/ Gas 3
Cook the quinoa to the pack instructions and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a sauce pan over a medium / high heat. Add the onion and celery, reduce the heat and cook until softened. (4 mins)
Add the garlic and pepper and cook for a further 2 mins.
Add the passata, cream cheese and herbs, stir until the cheese is dissolved and then allow to simmer for 5 mins.
Add the quinoa, chicken and peas and stir until combined. Transfer the mixture to a oven proof dish (approx. 9x9) or several smaller ones. Add the mozzarella to the top.
Bake until bubbling and all the cheese is melted (approx. 30 min) (times will vary depending on size of dish/s used)
Why not try replacing the mozzarella with cheddar?
