Turkey or Chicken Quinoa Bowl | Easy Leftover Turkey Recipes

Quinoa is one of my favorites for recipes. While I don’t use it as often as I probably should (it is gluten-free and packed with protein), it is a great addition to a wide variety of meals from savory to sweet. One simple way to add quinoa to your diet is to make this Turkey or Chicken Quinoa Bowl. I’ve made it with both chicken and leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
