I made a brand new recipe in my new Ninja 3-in-1 cooker! This time I made Chicken Piccata with Quinoa. This was a HUGE hit! Chris said he would like this regularly. Neither of us had ever had Quinoa before (it’s pronounced “kin’-wa”) and it reminded me of a cross between rice and couscous and it was delicious! It had so much flavor!
You will need:
- 2-4 chicken breasts (I used 2 and butterflied them)
- 2 Tablespoons of flour, and salt and pepper to coat the chicken
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 2 cups of chicken broth (OR 1 cup chicken broth & 1 cup cooking wine)
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon capers
- 1 Cup Quinoa
I made mine in my Ninja, but if you don’t have a Ninja, just use a pan on your stovetop. Dip your chicken in the flour, salt & pepper to coat, and then fry the chicken in melted butter & oil until brown on both sides and cooked through. Either set aside the chicken and cover with foil around it to keep warm, or keep in a warm oven. Add the lemon juice, chicken broth, capers and quinoa to the pan. Cook on low for about 10-15 minutes until the quinoa is cooked through.
This dish is delicious! You can add any veggie to it, like asparagus, beans, or broccoli. Makes a great meal!
