Dinner Ready in 20: Chicken and Veggie Power Bowls

Grill, crockpot or bake a few extra pounds of chicken ahead of time, or buy a rotisserie chicken on the way home. As long as you have some cooked chicken on hand, with just five additional ingredients, you can have a healthy balanced dinner on the table in 20 minutes or less.

This recipe not only saves time, it's a great-tasting, good meal you'll enjoy getting in front of the family without much fuss. Just prepare that chicken and take it out for a spin.


Chicken and Veggie Power Bowls


  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1½ cups asparagus, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • ½ cup roasted red peppers, diced
  • 2 cups chicken, cooked


  1. Cook the quinoa according to package directions. Cover and set aside.
  2. Add the olive oil, asparagus and garlic to a sauce pan. Sauté until crisp-tender.
  3. Stir in the cooked quinoa, chicken and diced red peppers. Heat through.
