Mac n Cheese for My Grown Up Self

After a bit if inspiration last night, I came up with Cheesy Quinoa and Chicken! (Aka Mac n Cheese for my grown up self.) In college I lived off Mac n Cheese and had a real craving for it yesterday.

This recipe makes two medium sized portions and pairs well with a salad or veggies.

What you’ll need:
1 to 2 chicken breasts
1/4 cup Colby jack cheese
1 egg
3/4 cup of quinoa

It’s a pretty simple recipe and only takes about 20 minutes to complete. Just FYI I mix the egg in with the quinoa and cheese on the stove top, then stick the mixture in the oven for 5 minutes at 350 degrees to cook it through.
