Cafe Rio Chicken 
I found this amazing recipe on Pintrest, and swiped the photo from I used a fat free Italian dressing and it still tasted amazing!  Now, if you make this recipe and divide it into four equal portions with about 3/4 cup of the quinoa, you are looking at only 218 calories for this part of your meal! 

found recipe at: Mandy's Recipe Box
  • 2 lbs chicken breasts
  • 1/2 a small bottle of zesty Italian dressing(I used Kraft Free Italian)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 pkt ranch dressing mix (mixed with 1/2 cup of water)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp. ground cumin
Place all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on High 5-6 hours OR on Low 8 hours. Shred with fork and serve in salads, burritos, tacos...etc. You can also double or triple this to make extras for freezing. Then simply thaw and reheat for a fast and delicious meal.  I served mine with quinoa that had been cooked in half chicken broth, half water, and with fresh fruit salad!
