As promised while introducing the new The Fashion Fraction a while ago, we are currently focusing on including slightly more various content into this platform. However fashion is our biggest passion and will stay our main topic forever, it showed up that there are a few subtopics we became more and more interested in during our work within the blogosphere. As those go hand in hand with fashion itself we finally set the decision to slip them into the blog from time to time as well.
After the already published first post in our new “beauty” section, we are now continuing with an article in our “lifestyle” category. I will keep myself short this time to avoid endlessly long writing and continue with the actual theme or better said with the recipe of my absolute favorite summer dish: Quinoa & Sesame-Chicken. It is super easy and quickly made while it is equally healthy, saturating and not to forget: de-lic-ous!
1/2 Cup of Quinoa (50gr)
1 Chicken breast
1 handful of Tomatoes
Oil (mine is walnut oil)
1. Rinse the quinoa well under cold water and drain. Afterwards put the rinsed quinoa into a saucepan and add the double amount (1 cup) of cold water. Toss in a dash of salt. Cover and bring to a boil. As soon as it starts to boil, turn the heat down to a simmer. Simmer for 15-20 minutes. The water should now already be evaporated, if not just let it cook a little longer. Use a fork to fluff up the quinoa.
2. In the meantime prepare your veggies by cutting the tomatoes and avocado into bite-sized pieces.
3. Slice the chicken breast into smaller portions. Dip the chicken pieces in Oil (I also like to use Soja Sauce instead) and then into the Sesame to cover it completely. Now put the Sesame-Chicken-Slices into a large pan (you don’t need extra oil if you already dipped it in it) and let it cook until it looks perfectly honey-brown.
4. Carefully mix all the prepared ingredients together and add Salt and Pepper if you want to.
5. Bon appétit!
My tip: This dish is also absolutely tasty eaten cold. Whenever I cook quinoa I do a huge serving as it can easily be eaten cold as a salad by adding a tasty a self-made sauce. For example simply made of white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, elderflower syrup (or honey), salt and pepper!
