  3. Fill another pot with 2 cups of water or chicken stock and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the quinoa and return to a boil.
  5. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer until the liquid has absorbed and the quinoa is just slightly translucent and soft. Remove from heat.
  6. Combine the chicken and apples in a food processor and puree to desired consistency.
  7. You may add the quinoa to the food in the food processor or mix in after puréeing for more texture.
