Slow Cooker Quinoa Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker Quinoa Chicken Chilli

I love my crockpot and whenever I get a chance to use it I do :)
It is just so convenient and wonderful. There is nothing like coming home after work and having a hot, delicious meal waiting for you!

I have started pinning a lot of recipes lately and have decided to take it upon myself to try and make as many of the recipes I pin as I can.

This is one I just had to try!

I mean look at the name of that recipe :)
Slow Cooker - Check
Quinoa - My all time favourite Seed/Grain
Chicken - Yum 
and Chili - Well, what are we waiting for!

I changed the recipe a little by adding 4 chicken breasts instead of two, a jar of salsa instead of tomatoes with chili. and added dried black beans that had been soaking overnight instead of the canned kind (which we don't get here)

I browned the chicken before adding it to the crockpot and left the meal cooking on high for 6 hours.

This is how it looked once done:

Quinoa Chilli

And was it yummy?
Yes it was - I am actually thinking that I could go and have a little of the leftovers once I have finished this post :)

I would warmly recommend this meal if you are a fan of chilli.

Have you recreated some Pinterest meals?

  1. Hi Natalie
    That looks delicious. I've had a slow cooker for exactly one week now - why ever did I wait so long to get one!!!!
    I have a classic chili on the go at the moment but will trying this one next week.
    Is it snowing with you?

    1. Hi Emma,
      You know that joke where it says you thought you replied someone but you actually did it in your head? Well unfortunately that happened to me! I thought I had already replied to you, sorry about that.
      How are you enjoying your crockpot?
      It snowed again here over the weekend, but the sun is out today and it is gaining on strength which is great to know!
      Hope your side of the world is also getting a little warmer?


Thank you so much for leaving a comment, we so appreciate hearing from you.
We will reply to all comments posted :)
