Quinoa is an ideal ingredient because it absorbs flavor and adds texture. This simple chicken skillet brings it all together, with a hint of aromatic cumin and delicious Low-Fat Chicken Tortilla Soup. 


  1. Combine soup, quinoa, stock, and cumin in large skillet.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat.  Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
  2. Remove lid. Add diced chicken and continue cooking for 3-5 more minutes until quinoa is cooked and liquid has been absorbed.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Top with green onions.
