Harissa Roasted Chicken with Quinoa Salad

Harissa Roasted Chicken with Quinoa Salad

You can’t beat tender & flavoursome marinated chicken, especially when it’s served with a delicious and nutritious colourful quinoa salad!

This week is Total Greek Yoghurt’s ‘Cookalong’ .. and so my sister and I have been busy in the kitchen creating the most delicious salad recipe that is perfect for both lunch and dinner (it would also be perfect for entertaining too!).

You can even just use the marinade part of this recipe to serve succulent chicken with any meal.. it’s so simple to do!

I’m a massive fan of Total Greek as it is made authentically in Greece, contains the highest amount of protein per 100g than any other branded yoghurt in UK supermarkets (the 0% fat contains 10.3g protein/100g), it has no additives or preservatives and contains just 2 ingredients – milk and live yoghurt cultures!

So, here’s what you’ll need to make this *super-food* salad that’s high in protein and bursting with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals!


*Use the 2% or 5% Total Greek yoghurt for more calories and a creamier taste!

    This video was really good, very informative. I am definitely going to try this recipe, as a single parent I struggle a lot with meal healthy ideas for my girls. I want them hopefully to eat healthy when they’re older. Your websites just perfect for that! Thank you x

    Tried this recipe but with fairly plain Quinoa and some Kale. The flavour of the chicken is amazing and it stays really moist. Another great healthy recipe.

    I’ve just had this lovely chicken salad for lunch and it is amazing. I’ve always had a jar of harissa in the cupboard and now I know what to do with it! I added tenderstem brocolli and asparagus to mine for extra veg. Can’t wait to have it again for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for another great recipe Nic! xxx
