Chicken with Quinoa and Vegetables

Chicken with Quinoa and Vegetables - Chew Nibble Nosh

THIS WAS SO GOOD.

Ok, I got that out there.  I was trying to think about what I could say about this dish to draw you guys in, and that’s what I came up with.  (It’s one of those days…)

This simple, healthy mash-up of chicken, veggies, and quinoa was the perfect weeknight dinner for us the other night.  We all enjoyed it, and it will definitely be thrown into the regular dinner rotation around here.  I couldn’t ask for more from a dinner, really.  It’s simple, fresh, healthy, filling, and my kids gobbled it up.  Mom – 1, Picky People – 0.

 I am a big believer in the family dinner.

 A friend recently asked me what sorts of traditions I’ve continued with my children that my parents started with me, and the first thing out of my mouth was, “Well, we make a point to eat dinner together every night.”  Dinnertime is our time to unwind from the day, and reconnect as a family.  I make it a priority for all of us to eat together, even though our schedules are busy, and I often feel like I’m driving a shuttle bus around after school.  Eating dinner as a family was part of my childhood, and I am glad that I’m able to make it a consistent part of my children’s world as well.  It’s our time to talk, to discuss, to laugh and to learn about each other and our days.  In this busy, crazy whirlwind of activity lifestyle, it’s our time to settle in as a family.
