Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.

  2. Season the chicken breasts with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  3. Drizzle the chicken breasts with olive oil, ensuring they are well coated.

  4. Grill the chicken for 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

  5. Meanwhile, rinse the quinoa under cold water and drain well.

  6. In a saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the quinoa and reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is tender.

  9. Serve the Cajun blackened chicken on top of the supergreen quinoa.
