this recipe for Chicken and squash stew with quinoa. Quinoa is also something relatively new to our pantry, but a fantastic alternative to the regular items (i.e. pasta or rice) that we may use to fill out foods.
The only substitution we made on this one was to use chicken breast instead of chicken thigh. We also added a little feta cheese on top (which was an indulgence seeing as I was under both my caloric and Points+ targets for the day). Without the cheese, this recipe came in at 248 calories per serving, and 281 calories with the feta added.
Those numbers are interesting for somebody like me, who thinks that putting cheese on top makes everything better. In fact, my husband is always telling me that we need more cheese, and I'm always telling him to go lighter on it. Apparently, yelling "diet" at him while he's pouring it on is helpful....although my sample size is small!
Anyway, this was delicious and one pot made enough for 2 meals, so we'll be having the rest tonight. I suspect this would also freeze well and even the kids would like it. I would make it again for the baby using a low or no sodium broth.
