This winter warmer is bound to bring a smile to your dinner guests faces & have them coming back for more. The maple chicken breasts are sweet and equally spicy, without being over bearing thanks to the fluffy and subtle nutty flavors of the quinoa. Feel free to add in your families favorite vegetables. We opted for sweet corn & asparagus, but mushrooms, onions and olives would be delicious too!
