King Ranch Chicken and Quinoa Casserole
Potlucks are hotbeds for fried chicken, mayo-loaded potato salads, and sugary mile-high cakes. They might be delicious, but they're heavy on the calories and fat. They're also certainly not helpful if you're trying to stick to a healthy-eating plan. We've gathered our best healthy potluck dish recipes, everything from pasta salads to squash casserole, pulled pork to lighter macaroni and cheese.
First up, this King Ranch Chicken and Quinoa Casserole is a quintessential potluck dish with a modern whole-grain twist. Leftover quinoa, rotisserie chicken, and canned tomatoes help this dish come together in less than an hour. Throw it in the oven for 25 minutes, and you'll be on your way to your picnic.
