To Make Confetti Quinoa Stuffed Chicken
Start by cutting deep pockets in chicken breasts. Make sure to cut them evenly, leaving a 1/2 inch rim around three sides to create a pocket.
Then cook the quinoa until fluffy and add in all the confetti ingredients. The combination of peppers, onions, garlic, spice, lime and coconut offers a bold island appeal the makes the quinoa especially delicious.
Stuff the confetti quinoa into the pockets in the chicken breasts and bake!
