Balsamic Brussels Sprouts And Chicken Quinoa Bowls – flavorful and delicious protein packed meal.


Hi guys! Are you having a nice weekend?

I’m away camping, but couldn’t wait to share today’s recipe with you!

I’m suspecting you’ve been missing my quinoa recipes.

Don’t worry, I’ve got plenty of them coming.

Quinoa bowls are one of my favorite meals and I’m constantly experimenting with new recipes.

Brussels Sprouts anyone?

This quinoa bowl consists of balsamic roasted brussels sprouts, fresh spinach, balsamic-soy oven baked chicken breast and toasted pepitas.

Simple to make with great flavors, just in time for fall.

The combination of flavors is amazing.


I’m not going to lie, this is not a 15-minute meal but, to be honest it takes about an hour.

And you can also cook the chicken in advance and then carefully reheat it.

I made these bowls for dinner the other day and I’ve been dreaming of them ever since.


I’m glad I was able to combine some nutritious ingredients, rich in protein, iron, vitamins and minerals in a simple meal like this.

Have a great weekend!

  1. I so appreciate you sharing your post at the #AnythingGoes Link Party. I’m looking forward to what you’ll share with us next week.

  2. What a fantastic looking meal Mira! I love roasted brussels sprouts! Great idea pairing them with quinoa and chicken and making a meal out of it!

    1. Hi, the 2 different items are not roasting at the same time. First- you roast the brussels sprouts at 425 F, then my instructions say that you adjust the oven temperature to 400F and roast the chicken. I do not mention it is done at the same time, because the pans may not fit in the oven at the same time and the two items require different temperatures.

  3. This looks awesome! Am going to make this for dinner tonight and probably add some sweet onions to the brussels sprouts in the oven. and possibly wilt the spinach slightly.
    Just one question-the recipe says it serves 4 but in the directions, it says to divide between 2 bowls??
