In a frying pan cook up some chopped chicken
In a saucepan cook 1 1/2 cups quinoa, as directed on package
Once your chicken is cooked, remove. Add 2 tbsp oil in pan and 2 tbsp water, add 1 minced garlic clove. Cook for 1 minute
Pour 3 cups chicken broth into your flour mixture. Using a whisk, mix until smooth and thickened.
Add chicken back into pan
Add the parsley and thyme to sauce. Season with 1/2 tsp onion powder and enough pepper and salt to taste. (remember your chicken broth has a quite a lot of salt in it, so don't overdo the salt)
Place your cooked quinoa into a casserole dish. Take 1 cup of your sauce mixture and pour over quinoa, mix it in or spread it around on top.
Cover with the rest of sauce and spread evenly over casserole. (if you were going to use some cheese this is where you would put it)
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until the bread crumbs are browned and the casserole is hot!
