Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place potato and 2 tablespoons water in a microwave-safe dish. Cook on High (100%) for 4 minutes or until almost tender. Drain.
  2. Place potato and vegetables on prepared tray. Lightly spray with oil. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

Using a meat mallet, gently pound chicken between sheets of plastic wrap until 1cm thick. Working with 1 piece at a time, coat chicken in flour, then egg, then quinoa mixture. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Tomato relish. TIPS: For a gluten-free version, substitute the plain flour with rice flour. Chipotle sauce is a smoky, hot chilli sauce. If you can’t find it, you can substitute with regular chilli sauce.
