Quinoa and Chicken Casserole

Casserole is my favorite dish because it is delicious and easy to make. If you are a quinoa fan, you have to try this quinoa casserole recipe with chicken, fresh basil, grape and more.... Quinoa and Chicken Casserole is a very easy and tasty main dish recipe.

Yield: Serves 4-5

  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken (find the cooked chicken recipe under the chicken section)
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups marinara sauce (or your favorite pasta sauce)
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream (heavy cream)
  • 1 3/4 cups halved grape tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt & black pepper to taste

In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add quinoa and give it a quick stir. Cover the saucepan, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Then fluff with a fork. Set aside.

Heat the tomatoes and marinara sauce in a large saucepan over medium heat until warm. Stir in whipping cream, basil, Worcestershire sauce, salt and black pepper.
