  3. Meanwhile, place flour on a plate. Whisk egg and milk in a shallow bowl. Combine pistachio, herbs and quinoa on a plate. Season with salt and pepper. 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.

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.
