    Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
    If using fresh chicken, instead of frozen, decrease the cooking time to 10 minutes.

  2. After cooking has completed, release steam, and carefully unlock lid. Use a meat thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature is 165 degrees. Remove chicken and carrots to a large cutting board. Once cool enough to handle, chop carrots and add to quinoa along with water chestnuts and chopped kohlrabi.

  3. Brush chicken with honey-Sriracha sauce. Cut chicken across the grain into thin pieces. Divide quinoa between four bowls. Top with sliced chicken and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Finish with bean sprouts.
