Ingredients:  
Salad-
- 1 cup quinoa
- 2 cups water
- 3/4 lb. Boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into bite sized pieces)
- 1 cup broccoli Florets
- 3/4 cup shredded carrots
-3/4 cup shredded cabbage
- 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles (and more for garnish)
- 4 green onions chopped (save for garnish)

Dressing-
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup Frank's hit sauce
- 1 tsp. Seasoning salt

Directions:
Directions:

In a fine-mesh strainer, rinse quinoa well and drain. In a medium pot, combine quinoa and water. Bring to a boil, then cover and turn heat to low. Cook until all the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, fluff the quinoa with a fork.

While the quinoa is cooking make the buffalo sauce dressing and cook the chicken and broccoli. In a measuring cup or small bowl combine the olive oil, hot sauce, and seasoned salt. Whisk to combine. Set aside.

Heat a medium size skillet over medium high heat Add a tablespoon of olive oil and saute the broccoli, carrots and cabbage for about 5 minutes. You want it to just start to soften, but still be crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the chicken to the same pan and cook the chicken for about 5 minutes or until cooked through. Add 1/4 cup or so of the buffalo sauce and cook until the chicken absorbs the sauce.

When the quinoa is ready add the chicken, broccoli, carrots, shredded cabbage and as much of the dressing as desired (I ended up using all of the dressing) toss well. Add the blue cheese and half of the green onions. Toss again and serve warm with extra blue cheese crumbles and green onions.

** I usually double this recipe when I make it as a main dish (we like leftovers!)
