This crusted quinoa chicken recipe is quick, easy, healthy and gluten free! Goat cheese and red peppers complete this weeknight-friendly meal.
You know what’s fun?
Putting the TV on mute and then making up your own narrative.
Not that I am currently sitting at my computer, with the TV on mute, narrating to myself while I type.
I just thought you might need a good date night idea sometime or something.
Don’t say I don’t look out for you.
Also, I will allow you to judge my lame, 23 year old self for thinking that watching a mute TV is an acceptable date night.
How the Huberoni puts up with me, I don’t know.
I think it’s the food.
At. The. Same. Time.
Mind blown? That’s what I thought.
Ever since those Potato Poppers where I failed miserably at using quinoa as a breading, I have been -determined to make some sort of crusted quinoa chicken recipe work.
So when Sartori gave me the opportunity to try their (ah-may-zing!) Extra-Aged Goat Cheese, I knew it was time to make the magic happen.
If anything can make a chicken breast recipe a winner, it’s goat cheese. I mean, have you tried makes goat cheese stuffed chicken breasts? I’m pretty sure it’s up there in world-saving capabilities with Batman.
Especially when it’s extra-aged, which makes it EXTRA-yum.
So, operation-make-quinoa-breading-and-not-have-it-end-in-tears began.
And you know what?
This time, it did not end in tears.
It ended in my belly.
You guys, this is probably one of the easiest dinners you will EVER make in all the dinners of your life. Yes, I know I say that a lot lately but this proves it:
Mr. FFF was watching me create this recipe and he said that he thought that even HE could make it.
If he can do it, so can you.
I mean, he would burn Cheerios if that was somehow a possibility. LOVE YOU BABE.
Anyway. Back to easy yummies.
Guess what! You probably even have all the ingredients…because there ain’t very many. (<3)
Healthy Carbs? Check. Healthy Fat? Double Check. Protein? CHECK CHECK CHECK
Oh, and the yum factor?
Eleventy billion…and twelve.
