Method

  • Toast cooked quinoa in a non stick pan for 5 minutes - stirring often so it doesn't burn. Once crispy set aside

  • Set the oven temperature to 390F (200C).

  • Chop the chicken into chunks. Whisk the egg in a bowl together with the parmesan and herbs. Prepare a separate plate with the quinoa. Dip the chicken first in the egg, then coat with the quinoa.
