So delicious! The lemon flavors paired perfectly with the chicken and quinoa. This was probably the recipe that made my fall in love with quinoa. I prefer it over rice any day! This was super easy to prepare in my cast iron skillet and so quick.

This lemon chicken, quinoa, and asparagus bake is definitely a family favorite. This generously feeds a family of six, but if you want seconds you better make a second batch. It's just that good. My wife and kids love this meal, and that's saying something because they're both picky eaters.

This recipe was sooo good. I even got the kids to eat it, including the asparagus. I cut them in 1/2 to 1-inchpieces so you could barely notice. They are super excited to be eating "mommy's quinoa", and so am I!

This is one of my favorite recipes. I used chicken thighs instead of breast, and it was super tender. Also, I used an Italian seasoning instead of the oregano and thyme. Fantastic flavor, so glad I tried it.

I opted not to use fontina because it was a little pricey, but mozzarella was a nice substitute. This recipe was really good, it was really creamy. Next time I might leave out the asparagus or just cook them separate.
