Chicken, Pesto, and Spinach Quinoa

I've been wanting to try quinoa since it seems to be everywhere now!  This was the first recipe I've made, and I really liked the way it turned out.  The cheese and pesto help to give it a creamier taste, so it doesn't seem dried out.  I'm definitely going to be trying some other quinoa recipes in the future!

Chicken, Pesto, and Spinach Quinoa
From: Sea Jet Cook
1 cup quinoa
2 chicken breasts
3 big handfuls of fresh spinach (about 3 cups)
6 tablespoons pesto
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Cook the quinoa according to the package directions (we used a brown rice and quinoa mix).  Cut the chicken into small cubes and cook in a fry pan or a grill pan until done. When the quinoa is done, add the spinach, pesto, and parmesan.  Then add the chicken stir it all together.
