DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all the dry seasonings in a small bowl. Mix them together and then season both sides of each chicken breast.
  • Add the teaspoon of olive oil to a large pan or skillet. Heat the olive oil for a minute over medium/high heat. Add the chicken breasts to the pan. Cook for seven minutes on each side with the lid on.
  • Add the chicken stock and quinoa to a medium sauce pan. Bring to a simmer over medium/low heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for ten to fifteen minutes with the lid on, until all the stock has been absorbed.
  • After the chicken breasts have cooked all the way through, remove them from the pan and let them rest for seven minutes before slicing them.
  • Add the warm quinoa to a large bowl. Toss in the lime zest, lime juice, salt and pepper, and chopped cilantro. Mix to combine.
  • Place the flesh from an avocado along with two tablespoons of Greek yogurt in a food processor and puree until smooth.
  • Serve the chicken on top of the quinoa and glob some avocado heaven on top!
