Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Tahini Chicken & Quinoa Bowl

Boil a kettle

Add the quinoa to a pot with a matching lid with 250ml [500ml] cold water and 1/2 [1] chicken stock cube and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, for 18-20 min or until all the water has absorbed and the quinoa is tender

 

2 Tahini Chicken & Quinoa Bowl

Meanwhile, add the red wine vinegar, 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] boiled water and a pinch of salt to a large bowl and mix well

Grate 1/2 [1] red cabbage, discarding the tough stem

Add the grated cabbage to the bowl, give everything a good mix up and set aside until later to pickle slightly

3 Tahini Chicken & Quinoa Bowl

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Combine the tahini, oregano, chopped garlic, 50ml [100ml] boiled water, a pinch of salt and the honey in a bowl – this is your tahini sauce

Place your hand flat onto the chicken breast[s] and slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun

4 Tahini Chicken & Quinoa Bowl

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the sliced chicken breast and cook for 4-5 min on each side or until browned and cooked through

5 Tahini Chicken & Quinoa Bowl

Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes in half

Dice the cucumber

Chop the mint leaves finely, discarding the stalks (save some leaves for garnish!)

6 Tahini Chicken & Quinoa Bowl

Once the chicken is browned, add the tahini sauce and cook for 1-2 min further or until the sauce has thickened and coated the chicken

7 Tahini Chicken & Quinoa Bowl

Once the chicken is done, add the diced cucumber, cherry tomatoes and mint to the cooked quinoa

Add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil, a pinch of salt and squeeze in the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon

Mix well until all the vegetables are coated in the dressing
