Grilled Chicken Breasts with Honey Mustard
Sautéed Zucchini (Courgette) with Red Pepper

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      Quinoa comes in tan, red and black but is all treated the same and tastes much the same. The zucchini uses up the onion from Day 1,  The rest of the pepper will be used in the Chicken Barley Salad.

Grilled Chicken Breasts with Honey Mustard Glaze

Total time: 30 minutes
    The chicken breasts are first marinated in lemon, oil and garlic, then grilled and basted with a lemon, honey and mustard mix.  Since we are using the reserved marinade as a basis for the basting sauce resist the temptation to taste it.  And stop basting a few minutes before the chicken is done, to finish cooking the sauce.

    Quinoa is very high in protein and "contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete food" according to Wikipedia.  It's also easy to cook and tasty - what more could we want? You can substitute Basmati or Jasmine rice.

Red Quinoa Ingredients:


Note: Quinoa comes in black, red and tan.....  At least that's all I've found to date...

Sautéed Zucchini (Courgette) with Red Pepper
