An Easy Gluten-free Quinoa, Broccoli and chicken Dinner

I like things easy when it comes to cooking dinner.
Since we have the empty nest syndrome around our house this week, I was cooking for one. Tonight, I came across the bag of Quinoa in the cabinet, and decided to try it.
 Boil 1 1/4 cups of water, dump in a cup of Quinoa, turn down the heat and let it simmer for 12 minutes. Then take it off the heat and sit for 5 minutes.
During this time defrost a few chicken strips in the microwave then toss them into the fry pan with Greek vinegarette and let them cook.
Put the steamer bag of broccoli into the microwave and let it cook for 5 minutes.
Everything was ready at about the same time.
 Scoop Quinoa onto a plate, then broccoli, place the chicken on top, and pour on some more vinegarette.
It was really good, Gluten free and healthy. Next will be to try it on the family. I know the Commander will like it.

Just add chicken.
