How to Make It

Preheat the oven to gas 6 200¡C 180¡C fan. Line 2 baking trays with nonstick baking paper.

Cook the quinoa as instructed on the pack. When done spoon the cooked quinoa onto one of the baking trays cover with a clean tea towel and set aside to cool completely (the tea towel will absorb any excess moisture).

Put the flour on a dinner plate and season with a little salt and pepper. Break the egg into a bowl season and whisk briefly with a fork.

Cut the chicken into bite-size chunks. Toss the pieces in the flour until well coated then dip into the beaten egg. Shake off any excess egg and put the chicken pieces in the cooled quinoa.

Use your fingers to press the quinoa onto the chicken.

Arrange the coated chicken pieces on the second baking tray drizzle with olive oil and cook in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until the chicken is golden and cooked through with no pink showing.

Meanwhile mix the lettuce, tomato, avocado and sweetcorn with balsamic vinegar together in a bowl and serve alongside the chicken
