Chicken wings and maple quinoa recipe

Normally I buy Chicken Maryland pieces but this week I have gone with chicken wings. I was thinking soy honey but ended up with maple quinoa. I hope you like this quinoa recipe.


As is my want at the moment I cooked the quinoa in the baking tray to soak up the chicken juices as the chicken cooks. This quinoa recipe is so easy, it cooks itself.
