The next time you are craving some crispy fried chicken, try this amazing Quiona coated Chicken Parmesan Recipe. Crumbly chicken tender strips covered in nutritious Quiona for even more satisfying crunch in each bite. Aside from the incredible flavour, Quiona is naturally high in fiber, meaning you will feel satiated longer without eating too many on end. The tenderness of the chicken complements the crunch of the coasted Quinoa in a symphony of flavour and texture.


 4 chicken breasts sliced in half
 2 eggs
 350 ml milk of choice
 90 g potato starch
 370 g cooked quinoa
 2 tsp chopped basil
 20 g parmesan cheese
 225 g marinara low-FODMAP sauce
 225 g mozarella, shredded
 fresh basil to garnish
 salt and pepper to taste



Start by pre-heating the oven to 190C and prepare a baking tray by spraying some cooking oil on parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, add milk and chicken breasts. Place the potato starch on a plate and sprinkle with salt and pepper to set aside.

In addition, in a small bowl whisk the eggs and leave on the side.​
Follow this step by adding quinoa to a bowl with basil, and combine together to set aside.​

Bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through.​

Remove from oven carefully and add 2 tablespoons of marinara over each breast and top with a sprinkle of the mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven for 5 minutes to melt cheese and heat sauce; serve with fresh basil. ​

Step 2

Take one chicken cutlet out of the milk and dip lightly on both sides in potato starch, then shake to remove excess starch.​

Dip starch coated chicken into eggs to coat and then into quinoa.​

Press the quinoa firmly into the chicken breast, then place on baking sheet. Do this for all chicken pieces​.

Sprinkle parmesan cheese over chicken breasts evenly before cooking for 25 minutes.

Remove from the oven and spread 2 tablespoons of marinara sauce over each breast. Sprinkle with some mozarella also before returning to the oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese.

Top with fresh basil if desired before serving. Enjoy!
