Blackened Chicken Breast Over Cilantro Lime Quinoa

(Serving - 1 chicken breast and 1/2 cup Quinoa = 1 Protein, 1 Starch, 1 fat)


2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (based on plan 6oz or 8oz each breast)
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cups low sodium chicken stock
1 cup quinoa
Juice and zest from two limes
Dash of salt and pepper
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
2 avocados
3 oz plain 0% Greek Yogurt


Combine all dry seasonings in a small bowl. Mix together and season both sides of a chicken breast. Add the teaspoon of olive oil to a large pan or skillet. Heat over medium/high heat. Add chicken, cover with lid, and cook for 7 minutes on each side. Add chicken stock and quinoa to medium saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium/low heat. Reduce to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes with lid on, until all the stock has been absorbed. Once chicken breasts are finished cooking, allow to cool before slicing. Toss cooked quinoa in lime zest, lime juice, salt, pepper, and chopped cilantro. Combine avocado, Greek yogurt, teaspoon of lemon juice, and a little cilantro in a mini-food processor. Add milk to desired consistency.
