Chef Kelcy’s Quinoa Salad with Berbere Chicken

Chef Kelcy’s Quinoa Salad with Berbere Chicken

Prep time: 12-14 minutes oven or 2-3 minutes microwave

In partnership with Chef Kelcy of Wright-Locke Farm in Winchester, MA! This easy light dinner or lunch option features a tender bone-in, skin-on chicken thigh that's been marinated with a heady Ethiopian berbere spice blend (think paprika, chili peppers, coriander, cinnamon & fenugreek). Served alongside a bountiful quinoa salad loaded with honey-roasted carrots, berbere-spiced butternut squash, pickled red onion, and creamy goat cheese (on the side!). Plus, a tangy citrus vinaigrette for drizzling all over.

In your bag

  • The quinoa salad with berbere chicken thigh, honey-roasted carrots, & berbere butternut squash
  • Citrus vinaigrette; Pickled red onion; Goat cheese

At home

  • Aluminum foil-lined sheet tray & a little oil (optional)

How to prep:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Remove the ramekins of goat cheese, pickled red onion, and citrus vinaigrette from the bowl and place the chicken (skin-side up!) on the lightly greased foil-lined sheet tray, then pop it in the oven for about 10-12 minutes.
  2. Alternatively, leave chicken in the bowl with the rest of the goodies (minus the ramekins!) and microwave, following steps 2 & 3 below!
  3. Meanwhile, add a splash of water to the quinoa, cover the whole bowl with a damp paper towel, and microwave until warmed to your liking.
  4. Pour some of the vinaigrette over your warmed quinoa salad and toss! Reserve the rest of the vinaigrette for final garnishing. 
  5. When your chicken is almost ready, turn on your broiler for 1-2 minutes to get the skin nice and crispy! Every broiler is different, so keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t get too crispy ;)

Time to plate it all up! Enjoy straight from the bowl, or spoon your quinoa salad, squash and carrots onto your serving dish and garnish with your pickled onions and goat cheese. Pop your chicken thigh on there too and drizzle any remaining dressing all over! 

That’s it! #Dinnersolved, dinner served.
