Easy Creamy Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bake

Easy-Creamy-Buffalo-Chicken-Quinoa-Bake-61

Basically, it is like a healthier version of buffalo chicken mac and cheese. I think it is safe to call it a healthy meal. I mean, there is quinoa, baby kale (completely your choice) and broccoli (again, your choice). It’s kind of the perfect meal for everyone, even vegetarians. Just leave the chicken out and you are good to go (promise it is still going to be just as awesome minus the chicken).
