quinoa and rice stir fry

quinoa and rice stir fry

my own recipe

I came up with this idea last night because I only bought one box of quinoa at the store and it wasn’t enough for 3 people!  I had a bag of rice so I added that to the recipe and it ended up turning out great!


1 box quinoa

1 bag jasmine rice

1lb chicken breast, cubed

1 bag frozen peas

1 bag frozen corn

1 white onion

2 cups broccoli florets

1 cup sugar snap peas (I didn’t have these last night but I LOVE them in this dish)

1/4 cup teriyaki sauce 

dash salt and pepper

3 tbsp olive oil

cook quinoa and rice as instructed on boxes.  in a wok, add olive oil, chicken cubes, salt and pepper and cook chicken.  once chicken is done, add broccoli and onions half of teriyaki sauce.  cook until onions are soft.  add peas and corn.  cook another 2 minutes.  add rice, quinoa and remaining teriyaki sauce.  fry until rice gets a brown tint to it.  this is a personal preference, i personally like my rice super fried but some do not!  use taste test to decide when you think you stir fry is ready!
