    Flavours are amazing

    Great ! I didn’t use spinach because I personally don’t like it and I added a bit more chicken for higher protein content. One of my favourite quinoa recipes !

    Delicious and flavourful! Very fresh taste. Followed recipe almost to a T, with the exception of adding some paprika when cooking the chicken, and substituting 1/4 tsp of thyme to replace the bay leaf. I also added a bit extra water when cooking the quinoa, as it started to stick to the bottom of the pan in some spots before quinoa was done cooking. Would definitely recommend and will make again ! :)

    This is a non expensive, easy to make. Never thought about mixing quinoa with mustard before, and i like the flavours... i just wonder how to make it again with less fat

    This was really good. I love the one pot dinners! It was tasty, healthy and easy to prepare. I would definitely make this again.

    Very very good and easy! I halved the receipt. I would salt the mixture afterwards, it needed it. Also be sure to leave the spinach to the very last minute, it wilts very fast

    My wife and I are on a low sodium diet. Apart from omitting the salt, what can I do to reduce the sodium content of this dish?
