Tabbouleh is traditionally made with bulgur, but in this recipe we have used quinoa for something a little different. Simple and fresh, combined with healthy chicken, this is the perfect midweek meal - packed with flavour and goodness. Share your moment on Instagram at #youplateit. Enjoy!
  • 2 Chicken Breast
  • 1 Small Bunch of Flatleaf Parsley
  • 120 Grams of Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 Spring Onion
  • 1 Teaspoons of Cumin & Smoked Paprika
  • 0.5 Cups of White Quinoa
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons of Dried Cranberries
  • 2 Teaspoons of Chicken Stock Concentrate
  • 2 Tablespoons of Mango Chutney

Prepare Chicken:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel. In a bowl, combine the spice mix with 1 TBS olive oil. Add chicken, rubbing all over to cover. Marinate for 10 minutes.

Cook Quinoa:

Rinse quinoa under cold water using a fine mesh strainer. Place quinoa, 1 cup water, and chicken stock concentrate in a medium pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until liquid has evaporated and quinoa is tender, about 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat, cover, and set aside to cool slightly.

Seal & Bake Chicken:

Heat a little oil in a pan over medium-high heat and brown the chicken for about 5 minutes, turning half way. Transfer to a baking tray and cook chicken for 16-18 minutes, until cooked through. (Tip: if the pan is oven proof, you can put this straight into the oven, saving yourself some dishes).

Make Tabbouleh:

Meanwhile, wash the fresh produce. Pick parsley leaves, discarding the stems and roughly chop. Quarter tomatoes and finely slice spring onions. In a large bowl, combine cooked quinoa, parsley, spring onions, cranberries, squeeze of lemon juice and ½ the mango chutney. Season well with salt and pepper.

You Plate It:

Divide tabbouleh between plates and top with chicken (we sliced ours). Serve with remaining mango chutney. Enjoy!
