INGREDIENTS

SERVES 1

  • 2 1/2 cups Fresh Baby Spinach
  • 1/3 cup Low Sodium Organic Chicken Broth
  • 1/4 cup Organic Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Mild Curry Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Madras Curry Powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 4 oz Organic Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 1/4 cup Organic Quinoa
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 2 tsp Sliced Almonds

DIRECTIONS

1 Preheat the oven to 400°F. Add the spinach to a 1-quart baking dish or 8-inch square baking pan.
2 In a medium bowl, stir together the broth, coconut milk, curry powder, and 1/8 teaspoon of the salt. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Transfer the chicken to a small bowl.
3 Stir the quinoa into the broth mixture. Evenly pour the quinoa and broth mixture over the spinach in the baking dish. Sprinkle the chicken with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon each of curry powder and salt, and nestle the chicken on top of the spinach and quinoa.
4 Cover the dish with foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil. Slightly stir the quinoa-spinach mixture and bake uncovered until liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes more. Adjust seasoning.
5 Transfer to a platter and top with the cilantro and almonds.
