Easy Quinoa and Chicken Salad

This is something I’ve been making quite a lot lately. My boyfriend and I both love it and you can make it in about 30 minutes.

You will need:

300g Quinoa
4 spring onions
1 red chilli
fresh mint
fresh coriander
2 bell peppers
1 avocado
50g feta cheese
1 chicken breasts per person.
salt
pepper
all spice
1 lime
olive oil

Method:

First put the chilli, spring onions, mint and coriander in a food processor and wiz it around.

Next wash the quinoa and put it on the hob, adding water and bringing to boil. Keep stirring it – it takes around 15 minutes to cook.

Chop the bell peppers and get a frying pan ready to fry them in.

Put greaseproof paper on a chopping board and place your chicken on it. Then season generously with the all spice, salt and pepper. Turn it over and do the same on the other size. Then wrap the paper up place a parcel, flip it over so it can’t open and take a rolling pin and hit the chicken until it’s flat. This part is fun.

If the chicken is quite thick, you might want to slice it in half so it cooks better in the frying pan.

Put some olive oil in a frying pan and then fry the chicken, turning every few minutes until it’s cooked.

While it’s cooking, keep stirring that quinoa and put the frying pan with the peppers in on and fry them too.

Chop the avocado.

The quinoa should be done now, so put it into a bowl of some sort and stir in the mixture from the food processor.

Then stir in the peppers. Put the avocado on top and crumble some feta cheese on top. Then squeeze the lime over it.

By now, your chicken should be fully cooked and ready to serve.

The quinoa dish serves around 4 people. So you can add more or less depending on how many people will be eating it.

Try it, I promise you that you won’t regret it.
