Baked “Fried” Chicken with Coriander Quinoa 

There are so many healthy fried chicken recipes out there. I decided to try one for myself with an oat-based breading and I thought it turned out pretty good! I served it with some guacamole, coriander quinoa, and yogurt – a mix of American, Latin, and Indian flavors on one plate. This deliciousness definitely happened by accident but it is absolutely fulfilling and is guaranteed to make all your taste buds happy 🙂
