Let's Make It
Bring water to boil in medium saucepan. Add quinoa; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 min. or until liquid is absorbed.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tsp. oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 to 7 min. on each side or until done (165ºF), adding 2 Tbsp. dressing to skillet for the last minute. Transfer chicken to plate; top with reserved pan drippings. Cover to keep warm.
Add remaining oil, carrots, ginger and garlic to skillet; cook 3 to 5 min. or until ginger and garlic are fragrant, but not browned, stirring frequently. Stir in bok choy; cook 1 to 2 min. or until bok choy begins to wilt. Add remaining dressing; cook 2 min. or until carrots are crisp-tender and liquid comes to boil, stirring frequently.
Spoon quinoa onto serving plates; top with vegetable mixture and chicken.
Prepare using KRAFT Lite Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing.
Quinoa was a staple of the ancient Incas who called it "the mother grain." Hailed as the super-grain of the future, quinoa contains more protein than any other grain.
Serve topped with chopped fresh cilantro.
