Buffalo Chicken Quinoa

Made by: Hope Danielson, Health & Wellness Director-County Market

Ingredients:
    3 cups cooked quinoa, cooled
    16 oz canned (white) chicken breast, packed in water, drained
    1 1/2 cups carrots, grated
    1 cup celery, diced
    1 bunch green onions, chopped
    1 cup hot sauce
    1/3 cup olive oil
    1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (or Gorgonzola)

Directions:
1. In a large bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, canned chicken, grated carrots, diced celery, and 1/2 of the chopped green onions. Mix well.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the hot sauce and olive oil together until well blended and then pour over the quinoa mixture.

3. Mix the sauce into the quinoa and chicken mixture and then add half of the blue cheese. Mix evenly.

4. Finally top the quinoa dish with the remaining green onions and blue cheese and enjoy!

Tips:
- You can use 1 lb of grilled chicken in the place of the canned chicken if you have the time to grill or like more of a grilled flavor.

- Add garlic powder or fresh diced garlic to add more flavor.

- Serve this recipe cold for a nice spin on traditional warm buffalo chicken dishes!
