Roasted Lemony Quinoa, Chicken Arugula Salad

Servings: 2 generously as the meal; 4 as a side salad.

Ingredients
  

  • 12 oz ground chicken or turkey
  • 1 Tbsp. Simply Ghee Original
  • 4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 small lemons - thinly sliced and seeded
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup broccoli florets - cut small
  • 1/2 cup quinoa - multi-color
  • 1/4 cup white wine/champagne vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon or gourmet mustard
  • 2 cups arugula
  • ¾ cup toasted pine nuts or sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint - chopped finely

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  • Melt the ghee in a pan on the stove, add the ground chicken and cook on medium high heat.
  • Place the thinly sliced lemon slices on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast the lemons until they are slightly browned, 7 to 9 minutes. Can go a little longer if you prefer them more caramelized.
  • Meanwhile, bring broth and quinoa to a boil in a small saucepan. Follow the directions on your package. Once the quinoa is removed from the heat, let it stand covered for at least 10 minutes so it cools. Fluff with a fork. Can toss it with a little ghee too.
  • Cut broccoli florets from the stems. Trim peel and thinly slice the stems and chop the florets into bite size pieces.
  • Finely chop the lemon slices. Combine in a large bowl with vinegar, mustard and the olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the chicken, broccoli, quinoa, arugula, nuts and mint to the dressing and toss to combine.

Notes

This recipe can be made with any of our savory ghee but Heirloom Salt + Pepper and Black Garlic Ghee are perfect to use.
Ghee Gal Approved!
