Marinated, Baked Chicken Breasts with Lemon Zest and Quinoa

Tonight I made dinner for my sister who returned home after being on the road with the Philadelphia 76ers (cool job!) for a game. I made marinated, baked chicken breasts with a lemon zest, olive oil and rosemary quinoa, and salad. The quinoa was Near East, which I recently discovered and love! All of their products, which include foods such as rice pilaf, couscous, and pasta are 100% natural. For salad, I used mixed greens, tomatoes, avocados, roasted pine nuts, olive oil and red wine vinegar.

The ingredients that I used for the lemon zest sauce were:

  • juice of one lemon
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • red wine vinegar
  • chopped garlic
  • ground cumin
  • thyme leaves
  • sea salt & pepper
