Clean eating doesn’t have to take all night. Prop up your tablet or laptop on the counter, fire up an episode of Modern Family and have this healthy gluten-free chicken dish on the table before the final credits roll.
This recipe is dairy free and nut free.
- 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
- 2 cups orange segments, drained with juices reserved
- 2 cups water
- ¼ cup quinoa, rinsed
- 4 4-ounce boneless, skinless chicken cutlets
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 8 cups mustard greens, chopped
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon gluten-free, reduced-sodium soy sauce
Place the mustard seeds and reserved orange juice in a small dish and set aside.
Bring the water to a boil in a saucepot. Add the quinoa and simmer until cooked, about 12 minutes. Set aside.
Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and add to the skillet. Cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate.
Add the mustard greens to the skillet and cook until wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the orange segments and quinoa and cook until warmed through. Season with salt. Spoon the greens onto four plates. To the skillet, add the orange-mustard seed mix, Dijon mustard and soy sauce and bring to a simmer. Add the chicken and warm through.
Serve the glazed chicken over greens.
