Serves 4 Prep time 15 Cook time 15



  • 185g quinoa prepared according to package instructions
  • 2 avocados pitted and sliced
  • 4 tablespoons salsa
  • 1 red onion thinly sliced
  • 50ml lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 20 ounces chicken breasts, boneless and skinless - cubed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne optional


  1. To prepare the pickled onions, place onions, lime juice and salt in a bowl and toss well. Let sit for 15 minutes or longer; set aside until you're ready to assemble bowls.
  2. Meanwhile, place the chicken cubes in a medium bowl and season with all of the spices - cumin through to cayenne. Toss well to coat evenly.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until cooked through and slightly browned, about 7-9 minutes; set aside until you're ready to assemble bowls.
  4. To assemble bowls, divide cooked quinoa evenly between four dishes. Top with equal parts of the sautéd chicken, avocado slices, salsa and pickled onions. Serve warm, room temperature or chilled.
