Easy Chicken & Quinoa Casserole in the Rice Cooker


This easy Quick Chicken & Quinoa Casserole is prepared in the rice cooker, so during the 20 or so minutes cooking time, its possible to set the table, prepare a salad or vegetable, and straighten up the kitchen. Very little hands-on time is needed to prepare this dish, in fact, if dehydrated vegetables are used, prep time is less than 10 minutes. A simple salad or green vegetable is all that is needed to complete the meal.

Its a good idea to have several types of dehydrated or freeze-dried vegetables on the pantry shelves not only for emergencies, but also for days when time is short. Dehydrated vegetables are a great timesaver, and they shorten the preparation time of this dish considerably; rather than having to chop the onions, celery, red, and green peppers, and mushrooms, they can simply be measured from their storage containers and added to the quinoa mixture. It may be surprising, but when these dried veggies are added to casseroles such as this, there is absolutely no difference in the taste. Quinoa, one of the new superfoods, is available at warehouse stores, health food markets, and larger grocery stores.


Hopefully there are packages of chicken from the Poached Chicken Module in the freezer, but any leftover chicken or turkey can be used even canned. This is a great dish to make if there isnt time to go to the store; everything can come off the shelf.


6 Servings

3/4 cup quinoa
2 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon granular chicken bouillon
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons dehydrated red and green peppers, or 1/2 of each red and green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup dehydrated onion flakes, or 1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup dehydrated celery, or 1 cup fresh celery, chopped
1/2 cup dried mushrooms, or 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 cups poached chicken breasts from the poached chicken module, cut into chunks
  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold running water, transfer to the rice cooker, and add the remaining ingredients.

  2. Turn the rice cooker to the white rice setting.

  3. When the timer rings, stir to fluff and serve immediately.
