  • 1/2 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten

Special Notes:

  • Make sure to use cooked quinoa for this recipe.

Cooking Instructions:

  4. Press the chicken breast into the quinoa mixture, coating it evenly with the crust. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts.
  5. Place the coated chicken breasts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Lightly spray the tops of the chicken breasts with cooking spray to help them brown.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the crust is golden brown.
  7. While the chicken is baking, prepare the lemon herb sauce (see recipe below).
  8. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
  9. Serve the Quinoa Crusted Chicken with the Lemon Herb Sauce drizzled on top or on the side.
