Citrus Quinoa Chicken

orange quinoaThis Citrus Quinoa Chicken is a super fresh and refreshing! I saw on pinterest and had to make. I love the combination of oranges and avocado. And, I love anything with cilantro! I know there are a lot of people that are not cilantro fans though, so, you can easily omit. It only makes about 3-4 servings so if you like to have leftovers, I would suggest doubling the recipe.

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil
  • 1 pound organic chicken breast, chopped into 1 in pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 large oranges, peeled and chopped
  • 1 avocado, cubed

Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (1-2 limes juiced)
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. fresh orange, juiced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. local honey

Topping:

  • 1/3 Pistachios, shelled

Cook quinoa according to package. Add oil and garlic to skillet. Chop chicken and top with paprika and salt. Add to skillet and cook until chicken is done. Add cooked chicken and cooked quinoa to a bowl and stir in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Top with pistachios and enjoy!
