Quinoa makes a return after #Hawaii #holiday

During the ten days travelling through Oahu, Hawaii I didn’t have any quinoa. Quinoa makes a return to my diet tonight. What better way to enjoy quinoa than with roast Chicken Maryland

Delicious roasted Chicken Maryland can be made better by cooking quinoa in the baking tray and incorporating the cooking juices from the chicken.

The chicken skin ends up being succulent and crispy. The meat is moist, juicy and tender. The dark chicken meat goes so well with some mayonnaise, it’s like having an open sandwich with shredded chicken meat.

The quinoa adds a lovely nuttiness to the kale coleslaw while the jalapeño pepper adds a real zing.
