Quinoa Fried Chicken Recipe is gluten-free and so delicious that you would never guess it's a light and healthy version of fried chicken.
Make the quinoa before you begin! Follow the directions on the package, or preferably, make this Smoky Lemon Paprika Quinoa recipe.
Add the flour, egg and quinoa to three separate, medium-sized, flat-bottomed bowls. Set aside.
Trim any excess fat off the chicken breasts and place them, smooth side up on a large sheet of plastic wrap, on a flat surface. Place another large sheet of plastic wrap on top. Then use a meat mallet, or the bottom of a small sauté pan to flatten out the thicker portion of each one, so the whole thing is the same thickness. (This ensures even cooking.)
While the pan is heating, dredge each chicken breast in the flour, then the eggs, and then place it on the quinoa and gently press down to coat the bottom. Flip it and gently press down again, to do the other side.
