  • 1 3 ounce  chicken breast (or use rotisserie chicken, skin removed)
  • 1 cup  water
  • 1/2 cup  dry quinoa
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon  cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons  fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons  raisins


1. Grill or bake chicken until 165 F. (To save time, use rotisserie chicken, skin removed.) Bring water and quinoa to a boil, lower heat to simmer, and cover for 10 to 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Fluff cooked quinoa with a fork and toss with salt, pepper, cumin, cinnamon, olive oil, lemon juice, mint and raisins. Serve chicken over quinoa.

This recipe was fantastic! I've never tried quinoa before and was pleasantly surprised. The recipe is definitely filling and full of flavor. I would recommend using a little less olive oil than recommended. Enjoy!
