Rainbow Moroccan Chicken with Quinoa

Thank you to 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Cassie for sharing this colourful meal with us.

Cassie says, ‘This delicious meal is perfect for meal prep days or for a family dinner. If you’re not a fan of quinoa simply swap for brown rice.’

Use whatever veggies you have on hand to add colour and vitamins to this healthy dinner. It would also make fabulous leftovers for lunch the next day.
