What You Need

1 Cup Kale
1 Lime -- cut into wedges
4 oz. Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
How To Make
First, prep your chicken -- link above shows you steps on how to shred chicken breast if you don't know.
Next, cook your quinoa. Rinse the grains in a strainer in cold water for 2 minutes. Then, place 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water over med-high heat in a sauce pan over med-high heat. End result should be fluffy.
While the quinoa is cooking, prep the other ingredients. Cut up the avocado into slices, set aside. Cut the limes into wedges. Half the tomatoes.
After that's done, and the quinoa is cooked, sauté your kale. Add 1 tbsp. of water, 1 tsp. of Olive Oil, salt, pepper into a sauce pan. Throw in the kale. Cook until wilted.
Finally, arrange your bowl! Throw all the ingredients in, and top with bleu cheese dressing. Enjoy!
