Step 1
Pour 1/4 cup dressing over chicken in shallow dish; turn to evenly coat both sides of each breast. Refrigerate until ready to use. Bring broth to boil in medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Stir in quinoa. Return to boil; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 10 to 15 min. or until quinoa is tender and liquid is absorbed. Cool.
Step 2
Meanwhile, heat barbecue to medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chicken 12 to 15 min. or until done (170ºF), turning after 7 min.
Step 3
Mix remaining dressing and lime juice until blended. Add to quinoa, peppers, onions and cilantro in large bowl; mix lightly. Serve with chicken.
