    Excellent! Perfect for lunch or dinner. I used pecans instead of pistachios; added the pineapple to the last minute of cooking the quinoa, making it really soft. If I'm out of chicken the next time I want to make this, I'll just add a can of chickpeas instead. Easy, make-ahead, child-friendly.

    Light and tasty, perfect meal for when you don't want to be hungry, but don't want to be stuffed. Have gotten several requests for the recipe. Wonderful.

    Personally, I would give this about 3.5 stars. It comes together easily and quickly and has good nutritional numbers. The reason I gave it 5 stars is because my extremely picky childred (22mos. and 5.5yrs) gobbled this stuff up. Neither one of them EVER wants to eat what I fix for dinner unless cheese is the main ingredient! I am still shocked! I will definitely fix this again.
