  • This is a very healthy meal! I like how easy and fun it is to make, and I have most of the ingredients to make these. Thanks for sharing such a healthy recipe that I can make for my family!

  • Chicken and artichoke are a nice combination. Quinoa in a casserole instead of noodles or rice is different, and much healthier I’m sure. This looks delicious, I am looking forward to giving it a try.

  • oooh I’m always looking for yummy recipes with quinoa – this is he best yet! I love the healthy ingredients and sounds totally delish – I like the idea of using Swiss, too!
