Hey Karen! I have never been much of a calorie counter to be honest, but I know some want the information. I will work on getting that information up for you 🙂 It is delicious though and fairly low in calories!

Hello! I’m interested in making this, but was wondering how many servings it makes so I can adjust it for meal prep :). I was kind of confused because 1/2 cup quinoa sounds like one serving, but 40 oz of chicken seems like a lot! But I also don’t cook much so 🙂

The picture looks like it has tomato, corn, and cilantro, none of which are in the recipe. Confused..
