  • 2 bamboo skewers
  • 1/4 cup raw quinoa rinsed
  • 200 g chicken thigh fillets cut into cubes
  • 1/2 tablespoon green curry paste
  • 1/2 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 1/2 zucchini grated
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lime juiced & zested


  • Soak the bamboo skewers in water for a minimum of 5 minutes. Ideally this could be done prior to starting the preparation and left to soak between 10-30 minutes.
  • Cook quinoa according to packet instructions.
  • Combine the curry paste and water, add more liquid if required. Then, coat the chicken with the curry paste and thread onto the skewers.
  • Heat a grill pan over a medium heat and cook for 4 minutes each side, until cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside to rest.
  • Once quinoa is cooked, add the ginger, peas, zucchini and olive oil to the pan and stir to heat through.
  • Serve the quinoa on a plate and top with chicken skewers. Squeeze over lime juice to serve.
