In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add carrots, celery, garlic, onion and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables are slightly softened, about 5 minutes.

Add quinoa; cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add broth, 3 cups water and bay leaf. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until quinoa is tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

Add chicken, lemon juice and dill; continue cooking until chicken is hot, about 2 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Garnish with lemon slices, if using. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 1 month.)
