Stand covered for 5 minutes, then fluff with fork and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile while your quinoa is cooking, place a wok over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive. Add onion and saute for 5 mins or until soft, then add cubed chicken. Cook 5-6 minutes then stir and continue cooking another 3-4 minutes or until chicken is nearly cooked thru.
  4. Using a large bowl, combine drained quinoa and chicken mixture with remaining ingredients saving the ½ cup shredded cheese for later use. Stir to combine. 
  5. Pop the mixture into the greased baking dish and cover with foil. 
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Remove foil and sprinkle remaining ¼ cup of shredded cheese over quinoa mixture before serving. 
  7. Garnish with coriander, lime wedges, diced avocado and chilli flakes.
