Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Rinse quinoa (if needed) and cook according to package instructions, using 2 cups of broth instead of water.
  2. Meanwhile, heat avocado oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Toss chicken cubes in taco seasoning. Add chicken to skillet. Cook until the chicken is almost done.
  3. Add the diced bell pepper and continue to cook until the chicken is done (edges are lightly browned and the inside is no longer pink), and the pepper pieces are fork-tender.
  4. Place the remaining ¼ cup low FODMAP broth, cilantro, green onion tops, lime juice, and garlic-infused oil into a blender. Blend until smooth.
  5. Add the cooked quinoa and sauce into the skillet with the chicken. Stir to mix.
  6. Serve warm.

Storage: Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Freezing is not recommended.
