Quinoa Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Crockpot Bake

Let me just start off by saying.... this looks absolutely unappealing to me. However, when I posted it on my Facebook page, a LOT of people said it looked delish! So I'm here to tell you.... those people were RIGHT. It was AMAZING, no matter what it looks like to you! LOL!

And anything with quinoa makes my belly happy because it's SO SO good for you! :)
So here's the recipe!!
1 cup Uncooked quinoa (I used the Inca Red type only because Walmart was out of the regular)
2 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup fat free cottage cheese
1 cup shredded cheese, low fat
1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
1/4 - 1/2 pepper (optional)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
In the LAST 30 minutes
3 cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets
2 cups  COOKED chicken**

**** make sure it's cooked, unlike what I did!! LOL
  1. Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray. Put everything in the slow cooker except for broccoli and chicken, and stir well to combine. Cover and cook on low for about 3-4 hours.
  2. In the last 30 minutes of cooking, add the broccoli (do NOT need to defrost) and add chicken. Stir to combine. Cover and continue to cook, turning heat up to high, for about 30 minutes or until the broccoli is thawed and warmed through. Top with additional cheese if desired (is not calculated into nutritional info).
