SERVINGS : 4
- 1 lbs. (450g) chicken breasts, cut into chunks
- 1 packet of cooked quinoa
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 oz. (30g) cup parmesan, grated
- 1 tbsp. dried herbs, of choice
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.
Place the chicken nuggets on a baking tray covered with baking paper and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
