Blackened Chicken Quinoa Bowl

Serves 4


  • 1 cup red or white quinoa
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon Fairway Arbequina olive oil*
  • 1 lime, halved
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 pound Fairway antibiotic-free boneless chicken breasts*
  • 2 tablespoons Fairway blackened spice
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped basil leaves
  • 1 avocado, pitted and thinly sliced*
  • 3 whole scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced

  • Salt and pepper
*Sale item week of 1/11/19–1/17/19



1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. While it’s heating, place the quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer and thoroughly rinse under cool running water (this will remove the bitter outer coating). Add the quinoa to the boiling water and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 15-20 minutes. Drain over your fine mesh strainer, then transfer the quinoa to a large bowl and allow to cool slightly.

2. While quinoa cooks, place 1/4 cup olive oil, juice from one lime half, and honey in a small bowl. Add a few pinches of salt and pepper. Whisk to combine, then give dressing a taste and add more lime, honey, salt or pepper if desired. Set aside.

3. Heat remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Pat chicken breasts dry with a paper towel, then sprinkle all over with blackened spice and a generous amount of salt and pepper. Rub seasonings into meat, coating it as evenly as possible. Add chicken to pan once hot and cook until outside is nicely charred and meat is no longer pink throughout, 4-6 minutes per side, pressing down occasionally with a spatula for even surface contact. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and let rest a few minutes, then cut into bite-sized pieces.

4. Give the olive oil and lime dressing a quick stir, then pour it over the quinoa in the bowl. Add the chopped basil and toss everything in the bowl together. Divide the quinoa between four bowls for serving, then arrange the chicken, avocado, scallions, and tomatoes on top of each.

Tip: Any extras will be great for lunch the next day and can be eaten cold or at room temperature.
