i lost my post from yesterday. it was a good one too. all about what i did after i brined my chicken. will it come back? i have no idea. people at blogger, if your listening…will it reappear? i’ll give it another day, and after i am done with this, back up my blog!

i am kind of bummed, not only did i want to share with you what i did with my brined chicken i also wanted to share with you the quinoa stew i made from chick in the kitchen. so here is what i decided, since i am crossing my fingers, today i will post my quinoa and next week i will re-post the fried chicken recipe.

chick in the kitchen posted this recipe the other day. it looked good and i was so excited to see it because i really don’t know what to do with quinoa other then stuff peppers and the usual. it looked and reminded me a lot of chicken soup. that is what i was kind of hoping for, it is however more of a stew but you could of course add more stock and less quinoa and make into one. i added extra veg and fresh herbs, and of course wine. i used the bones from my chicken the day before and made a quick stock in the morning. with the meat i was able to get off of the bones, i added to the stew.

this is a great soup/stew to make vegetarian too. use veggie stock and leave out the chicken. you could add beans possibly too? let me know if you try it. i loved this, e not so much, he is not a huge fan of quinoa, he doesn’t like the texture, but he ate 2 bowls.
