If you like spicy, healthy and most of all delicious meals, this Spicy Chicken with Quinoa recipe is for you.

Even though there is quite a bit of red curry paste in this dish, it does not really taste like a curry.

More of a tomato-ish, spicy Chicken, which is great served over rice or mashed potatoes.

Or as I usually serve this, with a fresh, crusty French Bread.

There is a lot of sauce going on in this spicy Chicken with Quinoa therefore, if you like saucy, it’s a bonus for you.

My daughter prefers less saucy meals, and I always use a slotted spoon to dish up for her.

The Cashew Nuts and the fresh Cilantro give this dish a wonderful flavor. To which would most definitely have a huge impact on the spicy-ness and overall flavor if you leave this out.

As always .. right, mostly this is another quick, easy but wholesome meal which will be on your dinner table in no time at all.

This looks great! I would have to use the slotted spoon too, I'm not big on too much sauce but I'd still love to give it a try!
