Slow Cooker Quinoa Chicken Chili

This is quite the recipe. It is so incredibly easy and not to mention pretty darn healthy. For those of you that do not like quinoa, or are not sure if you like it, I promise you will like this recipe. My husband was so impressed that he couldn’t even taste the quinoa and loved the recipe!

Prep: under 10 minutes

Cook: on low for 6-8 hours (add more time if your chicken is frozen)


  • 1 cup of quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies (Rotel)- medium or hot
  • 2 16 oz cans of black beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 15 oz can of corn, drained
  • 3 Cups chicken stock (I added 4 cups but it just depends how thick you like your chili)
  • 2 large chicken breasts, frozen or thawed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 2 tsp chili powder

Directions: Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker. Right before serving scoop chicken onto a plate and shred with two forks. Return chicken to slow cooker and serve with cheese, tortilla chips, etc. Whatever you like on your chili!

Serves: 6-7 bowls
