Chicken with Quinoa and Guacamole

Standard

This is a hearty and healthy dish that is dairy-free and gluten-free and healthy

Start with making the quinoa either in a rice cooker or on the stove- 1 cup of quinoa to 2 cups of water. I throw in some seasoning while it’s cooking- chicken bouillon works or anything that is flavorful

Start getting the chicken ready- cut boneless chicken breast into pieces and then put into a frying pan with oil and 2 cloves of garlic. Season with onion powder, chili powder, paprika, and pepper. Put a lid over the chicken at a low heat and let it cook.

While the chicken is cooking, make the guacamole. My guacamole recipe can be found here 

Once the chicken and quinoa is done, plate it or bowl it and serve! It pairs well with a glass of chardonnay or any dry white wine.

Guacamole

Standard

I feel like ever person that cooks knows how to make guacamole, and had their own recipe, myself included. I love making guacamole, and like use it in a variety of dishes; on a burrito, mixed with rice and chicken, on eggs, with chips or veggies, the list goes on and on.

  • 1 Avocado
  • Tomato (if my avocado is one cup, i’ll use a 1/4 cup of tomato, but I eye ball it)
  • One clove of garlic (or more of less depending on how much you live garlic)
  • Lime
  • Seasoned Salt – I use salt and lime to balance each other out so it’s not to sour or salty
  • Chili Powder or Cajun seasonings to taste
  • Optional: toasted pine nuts, chick peas, or really anything you think might taste good in it… the sky is the limit

Mash it all together and then enjoy it with your favorite meal or snack.
