Healthy Chicken Quinoa Recipes Make Great Meals But First, What is Quinoa?

I know you’ll especially love the flavors in this Chicken Butternut Squash Quinoa Stew and understand why it tops my best chicken quinoa recipes.  So, if you enjoy quinoa recipes, you have seen that funny looking word, quinoa, in recipe and articles. Pronounced KEEN-wah, this health food has been around a while but is becoming more widely popular and available in most grocery stores. If you have never tried quinoa, make sure that you do, as this grain-like seed is a gluten-free source of protein. Quinoa is considered a complete protein, as it contains all nine essential amino acids. It is also an excellent source for magnesium and zinc, and good source of iron and folate – making it especially good for vegetarians. I have simple, gluten-free recipes on my healthy food blog because I know people are looking for home-cooked easy gluten free meals.



Roasting Butternut Squash Brings Out The Flavor In this Chicken Butternut Squash Stew

All you need for my Chicken Butternut Squash Stew for roasting the squash is a large baking pan with sides (I prefer).  Then, I usually cover the pan with foil and coat with nonstick cooking spray for an easy clean up.

However, one of my pet peeves is when my baking pans start warping and I found this warp resistant baking pan. It might be silly but if you have had your pan pop up in the middle of baking something, you know exactly what I am talking about. Anyway, this is a great warp resistant nonstick baking pan to use for roasting to baking cookies.
