Make quinoa (see post for a tutorial for perfect quinoa if needed). Also, we like to use low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth for fuller flavor in this recipe.
While quinoa is cooking, combine all of the sauce ingredients together in a bowl and whisk well to combine. Set aside.
Once quinoa is finished cooking, stir in the sauce and toss well to coat. Add in chicken, carrots, edamame, and green onions, stirring to combine. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Toss in half of the peanuts and cilantro, then serve in a large bowl, topped with remaining peanuts and cilantro or 4 smaller bowls.
Adding low-sodium chicken broth to cook your quinoa enhances the flavor of this dish.
To save time, you can make a big batch of quinoa at the beginning of the week and easily whip these bowl up on a separate night.
An idea for quick prep is using a cooked rotisserie chicken for the recipe.
We like to use creamy peanut butter for the sauce, but crunchy peanut butter will also work.
You can make this recipe vegetarian by omitting the chicken.
