A note about serious food allergies

This meal takes you back to simpler times when dinner was an occasion to gather ‘round the table with family, catch up on the day, and dredge your fork through some stick-to-your-ribs cooking. Tender chicken breasts are drenched in a sweet-and-spiced sauce of honey, curry, and a little ginger, and served atop fluffy quinoa (which soaks up the sauce perfectly) and crisp buttered green beans. A satisfying, nourishing meal.

    1

    Cook the Chicken

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Season each side of chicken breasts with a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat ½ Tbsp. olive oil in a medium pan over high heat. Sear each side of chicken breasts for 3 minutes. Then place the seared chicken in the prepared baking dish and bake for 15 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

    Prepare the Quinoa

    Bring a small pot with quinoa and ⅔ cup of water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cooking for 15 minutes, or until all of the liquid has been absorbed, and the quinoa is fluffy. Fluff with a fork and salt and pepper to taste.Set aside.

  • Step 3 - Prepare the Sauce

    Prepare the Sauce

    Melt 1 Tbsp. butter (reserving the rest) in a small pan. Whisk in honey, 1 cup of water, bouillon cube, curry powder (reserving a pinch), and ground ginger (reserving a pinch) until bouillon cube is fully dissolved. Bring to a steady simmer. The sauce will get foamy as it reduces: after about 5-7 minutes, the sauce will be thicker and darker. Taste, adding a few more pinches of curry and ginger, if desired. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

  • Step 4 - Prepare the Green Beans
