SO much protein. Oh jeah.
I feel like chicken and asparagus and tangerine and quinoa tonight.
Like chicken and asparagus and tangerine and quinoa tonight.
Like chicken and asparagus and tangerine and quinoa TONIGHT!
I'm also incredibly sorry to put you through that just now.
So this salad is prooooteeeeeeeinnnnnyyyy. Which is awesome. It's like, coming at you from all angles. The chicken, the quinoa, the Greek yogurt, the asparagus.
I'm just kidding on the asparagus part. Just had to make sure you were still with me.
Let's get proteined!
Grab some leftover shredded chicken, some quinoa, a tangerine (or orange if you can't find a tange! I call it a tange), some Yoplait Greek yogurt, asparagus and some garlic. Oh! And lettuce greens. I went with red leaf lettuce this time.
Cook your quinoa until it's all spirally.
Sauté your asparagus with some garlic in a little oil for a few minutes. Yum.
Then you just combine the quinoa, chicken, asparagus and sliced tangerine in a big bowl and toss it all together!
And in the meantime, whisk together some of the tangerine juice with the yogurt and olive oil. Easy dressing, baby.
Doesn't get any better. And proteiny. And better. And proteiny. And bet… – I'm just joking.
