    Such a simple delicious comfort meal! I love that it uses quinoa and that it’s a slow cooker meal. Pinned!

    This looks like the ultimate back to school comfort food! I love the traditional chicken and rice casserole but the quinoa makes this even better!

    at the risk of sounding like an idiot, I have to ask, are you supposed to cook the chicken first? I’ve never used a slow cooker.

    You are fine. For this recipe you can place the chicken in raw. I have seen other slow cooker dishes where you cook chicken before putting it in to crisp up the skin.

    Does the quinoa have to be cooked first, or no?

    No you don’t. It will cook along with the chicken.

    My picky eaters lived this! I just tweaked a couple things: I doubled the garlic, added celery salt, and French fried onions. I will definitely make this again.

    Has anyone tried using fresh broccoli? Should it be added near the end? I’m going to try the recipe and place the florets in with the last hour.

    You can definitely add fresh broccoli at the end. I would put it in with about 30 minutes left.

    Frozen chicken in Slow Cooker? Or thawed? Or does it matter?

    I used thawed chicken for this recipe.
