Directions

  1. In saucepan, heat half of the oil over medium heat; cook garlic and paprika, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in quinoa and add water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until no liquid remains and quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; saute chicken, cumin, ground coriander, salt, pepper and cayenne until browned, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add green onions, tomatoes, red pepper, black beans and corn; cook over medium heat, stirring, until red pepper is tender-crisp and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer to large bowl. Add quinoa, cilantro and lime juice; toss to combine.
