Clean Eating Chicken Citrus Quinoa

Clean Eating Chicken Citrus QuinoaClean Eating Chicken Citrus QuinoaClean Eating Chicken Citrus QuinoaOnce a week I like to cook a whole chicken in my slow cooker and use it throughout the next few days in dinners and lunches. Usually on the day that the chicken gets cooked I add it to some yummy quinoa.

This week I was admiring the bright and colourful citrus fruits on my dinner table and decided to use them to make some zesty quinoa to go with my chicken. It was fab. Fresh and filling, this Clean Eating Chicken Citrus Quinoa is the perfect summertime protein packed meal.

I used chicken straight from my slow cooker for this recipe, but you can just roast a couple of chicken breasts in your oven to add to it if you like.
