Teriyaki Chicken over Quinoa
I totally cheated. Again. I'm beginning to think perhaps I should call my blog Cheaters Anonymous.
Anyhoo- I had leftover teriyaki chicken from the sushi adventure Sunday night, so I decided to spruce it up and serve it over some quinoa for a quick dinner.
The original chicken mixture was nothing more than roasted chicken, pulled apart with a fork and mixed with bottled teriyaki sauce. Tonight, I sauteed some chopped onion and mushrooms in olive oil, seasoned it with a little mushroom soy sauce, and added the leftover chicken mixture. I warmed the quinoa, scooped the chicken on top and garnished with chopped scallions and cucumber.
This was a good, quick dinner. It may just earn a place in the regular rotation. Who am I kidding? I don't have a regular rotation!
