For some reason (I’m not quite sure why) I took great pleasure in photographing cutlery with quinoa, sauce & chicken separately…

    • Bikini season?! Oh dear, yes it is coming up soon huh?! I’m with you Maggie, this is the kind of food to eat to get back into those bikinis!

  1. This looks and sounds so yummy! :o)

    I’m searching for your Sriracha sauce recipe, but am unable to locate it. Do you have it posted somewhere?


  2. Oh my, this is so good! A friend and I had it for lunch today with some steam broccoli added to the bowl. So good and will definitely be eaten regularly at my house.

  3. I’m very sensitive to spices but this looks so good! Could I substitute soy sauce and some red pepper flakes for the sriracha?

  4. Do you happen to know the nutritional info for this? I’m doing weight watchers that’s why I’m wondering. I know it has got to be weight watchers friendly. I’m just wondering exactly how many points. Going to make this tonight. Can’t wait!

  5. Wow! That looks like enough hot sauce to choke a horse! This looks delicious though. Think I will use a bit less. Thanks for this delicious looking recipe. I am sick of my own! LOL

    • Ha! Hopefully not 😉 Lots of folks have enjoyed the ratios here & had no problem. Making adjustments to suit your palate is always a smart thing to do though. Enjoy!

  6. this sounds awesome…. but I’m wondering… I have a little over a pound of shrimp thawing out. what are your thoughts on maybe cutting the recipe in half and using the shrimp instead of chicken?

    I WILL try it with chicken some time! It sounds just YUMMY!

  7. I have a diabetic son and am watching out for nutrition info. Do you have the nutrition info on this? Especially the carbs, protein, fats and sugars?

  8. Great recipe! I liked a lot, but I wish it had more sauce. I also ended up using less chicken than the recipe called for. My wife could not finish this dish–It was too spicy for her :) I wonder if adding a bit of tomato sauce would make it saucier and maybe some cream could tone it down a bit? Would not be as healthy that’s for sure…
