I’ve seen quinoa crusted chicken all over Pinterest! I keep pinning it and pinning it because they look delicious, but I’ve never actually made it… until now!
I went to the store and bought the ingredients! That’s step one to creating these healthy chicken tenders :)
The problem… I only looked at the ingredients, not the actual steps of how to make it :(
Wash quinoa, cook quinoa, dry quinoa, bake quinoa, grind quinoa up into a flour….. waaahhh??? Ain’t nobody got time for that!
Two days ago was a snow day (this Florida girl is still getting used to this concept)! With the snow came a strong desire to cook… since I was stuck indoors all day alone and bored out of my mind. Problem though, with inches of snow on the ground, I couldn’t make it to the grocery store.
After ten minutes of staring blankly into my fridge and cabinets, the perfect concoction came together! I found a way to turn three ingredients into a simple, edible crock pot dish. It filled my apartment with a warm, delicious smell that made me (just for a moment) forget about the arctic tundra outdoors.
I kid you not, during this meal I actually patted myself on the back because of how darn good this chicken was! It was one of the easiest recipes in the world, only required four ingredients, and took 3 minutes of prep time.
The result was a moist, flavorful feast! No joke, I’m making this again this week.
