Italian Quinoa Chicken Salad is a simple and easy way to have a delicious dinner prepared for your family in under thirty minutes!
I grew up having dinner with my family almost every night and that instilled the importance of eating a meal together. Fast forward to the present and I am now a mom to a rambunctious toddler whose favorite word is "no". I love cooking for my family and eating dinner together. It isn't always easy to get a meal ready for everyone at the same time, and some days when #ToddlerLnC boycotts nap-time we don't all eat together.
Lots of families have work, after school activities, or any number of reasons why family meals don't happen. I get it - life is busy, but I am a firm believer in eating meals together - and I try my hardest to "unplug" during those times as well. Family meals don't have to be elaborate affairs, but I also don't want to have fast food every night. I like to cook fresh meals for my family, and this Italian Quinoa Chicken Salad made with Tyson® Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Strips and Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing is full of protein, flavor, easy enough for any night of the week.
Mozzarella, tomatoes, and fresh herbs give my quinoa an Italian twist. I love making Tex-Mex Quinoa Salads, and this Italian Quinoa Chicken Salad will definitely be a repeat meal. Quinoa is a breeze to make, and can be made day-of if you want a warm salad, or ahead of time, if you want a cool salad.
Tyson® Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Strips from the freezer section at Walmart, and Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing are the perfect one-bowl salad mix-ins. Tyson® Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Strips are made with 100% all natural ingredients and white meat chicken, no preservatives, and are fully cooked. Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing is full of herbs, seasoning and a boost of zesty flavor while not containing high fructose corn syrup.
