Wholesome honey mustard chicken
This dish is a healthy take on a classic recipe
As a general rule, Mexican food is a popular choice in most households. The combination of flavours that come from rich tomato, garlic and creamy avocado is so simple but so tasty. This meal is a perfect concoction for the end of the week, as most ingredients can be found in the pantry – which means you won't be rushing out to the shops last minute!
Using quinoa keeps the dish gluten-free and also speeds up the cooking time. Quinoa is a low GI food – this means it will cause a more gradual energy release, keeping you fuller for longer and preventing a rapid spike in blood sugar levels.
