³ Description

A clean juicy blackened chicken, over a fluffy bed of quinoa.

² Ingredients

  •  2 serving (serving = 1/4 cup) Trader Joe's Quinoa
  •  1/2 tsp Cumin
  •  1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  •  1/2 tsp Onion Powder
  •  1/2 tsp Paprika
  •  1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  •  1/2 tsp Red or Cayenne Pepper
  •  1/2 avocado, NS as to Florida or California Avocados
  •  1/4 oz Lemon Juice
  •  1 cup, chopped Scallions or Spring Onions
  •  1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  •  1 serving (serving = 1 cup) Nature's Promise Low Sodium Organic Chicken Broth
  •  1 breast, bone and skin removed Skinless Chicken Breast

q Directions

Place quinoa in pot after the chicken broth has come to a boil, put element on low and let simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Add scallions once cooked through and no water remains in the pot.

Mix all spices together and rub all over chicken breasts. Spray olive oil on a frying pan and cook chicken on medium-medhigh heat for 7 minutes on each side (or until cooked through). Cover the frying pan while cooking the chicken, this will help with the blackened taste.

Mix greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic powder and avocado in a processor.

Sounds like an amazing recipe (I actually plan on making it tonight) but I think the Greek Yogurt wasn't added to the recipe list. Thanks for this!
