Quinoa Chicken Parmesan

I love quinoa. This Quinoa Chicken Parmesan dish is a favorite. Satisfying and nutritious, this recipe for a basic baked chicken parmesan is simple and delicious.

Quinoa is used as a replacement for breadcrumbs in this recipe and give a crispy coating on chicken. I enjoyed the texture of the crispy quinoa on the chicken and I am sure, you will also!
