One of our most popular dishes at Adventures In The Kitchen Cooking School is our Coconut Lime Quinoa with Grilled Pineapple. Each bite will take you to a tropical beach. It is a fusion of delicious flavors and the perfect side to grilled chicken.
Quinoa is full of protein and a filling dish. You can make a batch at the beginning of the week and grab when needed.
This quinoa is flavored with coconut milk, lime, mint and cilantro. It is topped with grilled pineapple that you marinate in coconut milk and cream of coconut.
This chicken would be the perfect dish to serve on a bed of this quinoa.
