Healthy Crock Pot Chicken, Kale & Quinoa Stew
This crockpot recipe is one of my favorite, simple, yet delicious meals to make when I don't have a copious amount of time to cook. The chicken, kale, and quinoa merry well together to create a light and healthy stew for dinner or lunch. Enjoy!

Optional: I love adding avocado to this dish to incorporate some healthy omega-3 fats into this dish!
