Chicken Parm Baked Quinoa…with a kick!

A few weeks ago I made this chicken parm baked quinoa… and it was delish + ┬áseemingly healthy.

I decided to dial up the spicy kick a bit and ordered “fire roasted” tomatoes with green chiles (not a great photo!) instead of just plain diced tomatoes.

I also added extra cracked red pepper and some diced jalapeno into the tomato sauce before mixing…

And it came out of the oven wonderfully!

I served it with a light spinach salad with olive oil and salt+pepper, and it was great. We loved the jalapeno and green chiles in the diced tomatoes – Hewitt loves spicy food, and I have learned to like it a lot more than I used to. It’s just a nice change to a typical chicken and tomato sauce dish.
