My blogging friend, Shelby, is on vacation this week, and she graciously allowed me to write a guest post on her blog while she is enjoying her vacation! I love Shelby’s blog, The Life and Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch, with all the fantastic recipes, beautiful photos and the funny stories about her family and furkids!
Shelby has many healthier recipes adapted from Cooking Light magazine, so I decided to do a recipe that was mostly healthy, but still delicious with a little kick. The result is Bang Bang Chicken with Quinoa.
Bang Bang Chicken with Quinoa is a quick and easy chicken stir fry dish with a Bang Bang sauce, like that from Bonefish Grill, made with Sriracha, Sweet Thai Red Chili Sauce, honey, mayonnaise, and vinegar. It is served over quinoa instead of rice, which is a high protein, gluten free alternative to rice.
This Bang Bang Chicken with Quinoa is a great weeknight recipe because it is so quick and easy to make, yet is suitable for company. Since it uses quinoa instead of rice, it keeps it healthy.
