–4 chicken tenderloins or breast strips

–honey

–toasted walnuts (1 handful)

–Dijon mustard

–chicken broth (non-fat, low sodium)

–quinoa (boxed)

1 – Place two-thirds cup of quinoa in a covered baking dish.  Add 1 and one-third cups of chicken broth.  Season with olive oil.  Microwave on high for 6 minutes; then microwave on 50 percent power for 9 minutes.  When finished, keep covered to preserve warmth.

2 – Place the chicken in a covered baking dish.  Season with salt and pepper.  Place 1 handful of toasted walnuts, 3 tablespoons of honey, 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, and one-half cup of chicken broth in a food processor.  Pulse until smooth.  Pour the sauce atop the chicken.  Add a drop or two of olive oil.  Microwave the chicken for 5 and one-half minutes on high.

3 – Serve the chicken with sauce atop the quinoa.  I also served a salad and barbecued beans (recipes, see the search box on this blog).
