On: Gluten Free Creamy Cilantro Lime Chicken and Quinoa

Be still my beating heart. For it has found a new sauce for which it yearns. The creamy cilantro lime sauce that I threw together in my food processor was an instant hit in my home after cooking for the past few months in a bit of a food rut. It is gluten free, and low fat, as the “creamy” essence is from low fat greek yogurt. Thanks to the jalepeno it has a tiny little kick. Also of note, I have found a lovely affordable cruelty free chicken breast and highly recommend it. And a 5$ gem at Trader Joe’s Rounds the meal off for the eoniphile: a white blend titled Grifone Bianco (the vintage and varietals are unlisted, but for 5$ its great!). Enjoy!

2 Lean organic chicken breasts

1 cup of quinoa cooked in 2 cups of boiling water


1/2 cup low fat greek yogurt

1 cup organic cilantro

1 tsp. rice vinegar

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 lime squeezed

2 cloves garlic

1 jalepeno-sliced and seeded

Directions: Cook the chicken as you like. It is gorgeous here in Southern Oregon, thus I had my husband throw ours on the grill for 10 minutes on medium heat. Meanwhile, I boiled the quinoa and made to sauce. To make the sauce put the greek yogurt, jalepeno, lime juice, rice vinegar, garlic, and cilantro into a food processor and process until smooth and consistent. Drizzle over chicken and quinoa as desired. Quick and easy my friends! photo1 (4)

Make your day great!
