  • I always found it hard for me idk why to cook the chicken like that.. I always cut it in half but not all the way. Lay it flat and season it with my favorite seasonings. I also add mango or orange pieces… that’s why I love Quinoa salad because you can add SOO MUCH!!! love it

  • Do you seed the cucumber and tomatoes?You will eventually slice your fingers if you continue to breakdown the feta that way,be careful break it up with your fingers.Keep going!������

  • I love quinoa! I’m not a fan of chopping onions either haha. I like to do a greek quinoa salad with chicken, I just find that I’m hungry 10 minutes after eating it so I’m going to try throwing some chickpeas in with it to make it more filling. Personally, I’ll put the quinoa and the chicken in the fridge to cool down before mixing in the veggies. I’ll definitely have to try this recipe some time, it looks great! And you’re right, authentic feta is from sheep’s milk. Have you ever tried throwing in kalamata olives? I include them in the greek quinoa salad and I really like it.

  • Loved this video! A great lifestyle addition video to your channel.I know you’ve mentioned you were planning to incorporate some other options along with the already priceless beauty videos you provide us with!

  • Thank you, Kendra! Such a good and healthy recipe. It will be on my diet list for sure! Would be great to see some more cooking videos from you!:-)

  • It looks real good but I hate how you don’t speak to us and talk about what you add. I understand ingredients are in the description but still kind of annoying

  • Recipes you post are easy to understand, healthy and great addition to my weight loss plan. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful repertoir of foods!

  • Brother this video is awesome and simple, every video should be like this; very straight to the point and efficient continue great work. A Fan

  • ppl is so worry about gaining weight. All foods have calories. Just eat the healthy ones and live the junk away from you. Do exercise at least 30′ for 5 days, drink your water, eat slowly, eat mini meals during the day, don’t eat too late, sleep your 8 hour…… C’mom, we all know that. The ppl I know that are fat, are the ones that do the opposite or /and have problems with hormones. So eat your meal and do what you have to do. Btw, Thanks Patrick! I’m always busy. You are my hero.

  • I cooked Quinoa last week with chicken broth and a lot of onions and cilantro and still it didn’t have any flavor. I’m going to try today your recipe to see how it goes. I love veggies and your dish looks yummy. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  • Great video. Although, to those new to Quinoa, be fully aware, there is a high amount of gluten in it. Gluten increases insulin levels, which are the cause of those pesky sugar cravings. Those on a strict diet should be aware.

  • Glad you liked it:-) If you want to see behind the scenes on my new National Geographic Channel show just search for the60secondchef on Facebook….happy cooking!

  • That is the nicest thing I have heard in ages! Thank you:-) Glad you liked the video and check out my egg white omelette for another easy, healthy, protein fix:-)

  • Clicking on this video, I thought you was some youtube sensation with 300,000+ subscribers. But no; for some reason you have under 1000. This is a great video and explains fully what is in it. Im only 16 and im starting a diet soon which contains alot of protein and this seems suitable.

    Keep it up, you just earned 1 more subscriber!:)

  • You can use all water or all stock it depends on the flavour you are going for. Stock will make the dish a lot tastier though. Personally I’d go for chicken stock but you can equally use veg stock.

  • Wonderful video! btw my sis used this fantastic fat loss program known as: Fat 360 Nuke and lost 14 pounds in a month. I cannot really remember the exact web site just Google it.

  • Aren’t you supposed to cover the Quinoa while simmering for 15 minutes?
    What is that long green veggies that you put in there? Looks like zuchini?
