Grilled Chipotle Chicken with Cilantro Lime Quinoa

I found this recipe from a friend and was definitely in the mix for a new recipe!  Grilled chicken is a favorite in our house, but you can always spice it up and make it even tastier!  This was a complete winner, just enough spice and plenty of flavor!!  I love quinoa, but I'm always trying to find new ways to make it interesting and not plain!!  This is a winner!!

Grilled Chipotle Chicken


4-6 boneless skinless chicken breast
2-3 tsp Chipotle powder
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
2 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro (finely chopped)
2 garlic cloves, minced
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
1.5 Tbsp honey or 1/2 tbsp stevia (I used honey)

Combine all ingredients and put into a glass bowl or gallon size ziplock baggie to marinate chicken in the fridge for several hours (or overnight...this is also a great recipe to make double of and freeze the extra one for a quick meal!!).

Grill until cooked throughout.

(Another option is to bake at 350 for about 35 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

Prepare quinoa as directed on the bag for a serving of 4.  (2 cups water to 1 cup quinoa).
Add 1/4- 1/2 salt (and pepper if desired) to taste
2 tsp Organic Coconut Oil (adding this makes the quinoa SO delicious and fluffy too!)
Zest and juice from 1-2 limes

Bring to a boil (with all above ingredients included).  Cover and reduce heat to low.  Simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Let stand 2-3 minutes and fluff with a fork!

Let quinoa cool for about 10-20 minutes then add 2-3 small tomatoes, diced
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
