Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Quinoa Bites

Quinoa has become one of my favorite ingredients to work with.  I made Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bites recently, but I wanted something that my kiddo would eat as well.  These are so yummy and fun to eat, but packed with good stuff!  I love making these in my mini cupcake pans, they end up perfectly kid sized.  You can also make a big batch of these and freeze them for later!  Did I mention these are super easy to make!?

You will need:

2 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup diced cooked chicken ( or 1 chicken breast worth)
3 eggs
2 cups broccoli, diced
1 cup yellow onion, finely diced
1 Tbls minced garlic
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick spray and use a small scoop to scoop out the mixture into the pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.  Serve immediately, or let cool and freeze for later!  My batch yielded about 36 mini bites or 2 full mini cupcake pans worth.
