Recipe Ingredients for Sesame Garlic Chicken with Tahini Spinach & Toasted Peanut Quinoa

180 g boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 clove garlic, sliced
6 g (1 1/2 tsp) unsalted sesame seeds, divided
26 g (3 tbsp) Peanuts, All Types
60 g quinoa
220 g spinach, washed, drained, stems removed and steamed
20 g (1 1/2 tbsp) Sesame Butter, Tahini, From Roasted And Toasted Kernels
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 g Stevia Powder

Recipe Directions for Sesame Garlic Chicken with Tahini Spinach & Toasted Peanut Quinoa

  1. Ensure that 2 racks are in middle positions in oven. Preheat oven to 375F.

  2. Place chicken on a foil-lined baking pan. With a sharp knife, make 3 slits, a quarter to halfway through each chicken breast. Stuff thin slits with garlic, dividing evenly. Sprinkle 1 tsp sesame seeds on top of chicken. Place in oven on middle rack and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until chicken?s juices run clear and no pink remains.

  3. Meanwhile, on a separate foiled-lined baking pan, toast peanuts in the same 375F oven for 4 to 6 minutes on top rack.

  4. Rinse quinoa thoroughly with water in a fine-mesh strainer until water runs clear. Drain well. Combine quinoa and 1 cup water in a medium-size saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until grains become translucent, about 15 to 20 minutes. Add toasted peanuts to cooked quinoa.

  5. Prepare Tahini Sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together tahini, vinegar, soy sauce, 1 tsp water and stevia until combined.

  6. Divide spinach between 2 plates and top with Tahini Sauce. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 tsp sesame seeds on top of spinach. Plate chicken breasts and quinoa off to side of spinach. Chicken can be kept stored in refrigerator for 4 days.
