    Ingredients:

    225g quinoa

    25g butter

    1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

    1 garlic clove, crushed

    400g chicken mini fillets

    tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

    300g vine tomatoes, roughly chopped

    handful pitted black kalamata olives

    1 red onion, finely sliced

    100g feta cheese, crumbled

    small bunch mint leaves, chopped

    juice and zest ½ lemon

    Directions:

    Cook the quinoa following the pack instructions, then rinse in cold water and drain thoroughly.

    Meanwhile, mix the butter, chilli and garlic into a paste. Toss the chicken fillets in 2 tsp of the olive oil with some seasoning. Lay in a hot griddle pan and cook for 3-4 mins each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate, dot with the spicy butter and set aside to melt.
