Quinoa Chicken Chili

I made this yummy chili in my pressure cooker and it was delicious!
3 raw chicken breasts (boneless/skinless), chopped to 1 inch pieces (mine was still mostly frozen)
1 cup uncooked, rinsed quinoa
1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and cut in 2 inch wide large slices
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed) OR 1 3/4 cups of the beans you made in your pressure cooker earlier ;)
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 clove garlic chopped OR 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 packet chili seasoning
3 cups chicken broth, divided (if you want it more soupy add more at the end)

Place chicken chunks, quinoa, sweet potatoes, 2 cups of the chicken broth, garlic, and chili seasoning packet in the pressure cooker and stir to combine. Add the can of tomatoes and do not stir. Put the lid on and cook for 5 minutes on High Pressure. Let the pressure drop naturally. When it's done add the other cup of chicken broth and the black beans, roughly chop the sweet potato to smaller pieces, stir, and serve. Seasson to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

I wish I had a pressure cooker. This looks delicious. I'll have to try it without. I love quinoa.
