tips & tricks

Vegetarian Option - Substitute chicken breast for 1 cup + 1/4 cup of quinoa.

Switch out your vegetable, I used broccoli because I had left overs. Other great options would be roasted sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, cauliflower rice.

Before eating, if possible heat up roasted vegetable.
