"This recipe will kick your taste buds into high gear! The perfect blend of paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper will have your mouth buzzing with flavor and heat, but don't worry, the addition of the avocado and Greek yogurt cream sauce acts as a cooling agent for all that fire! The quinoa adds a gentle basic flavor to this intense dish and contributes a satisfying amount of nutritious fiber and protein to keep you and your family full and happy!"

reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
4 (4 ounce)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
non-stick cooking spray
Avocado Cream Sauce:
plain non-fat Greek-style yogurt
Made this last night and everyone loved it. My sauce ended up more like a guacamole texture, but I think that is because of the greek yogurt I used. I'll have to add something to make it thinner next time.
Pretty easy to make and super delicious. I made double the amount of creamy avocado sauce to have with some fresh veggies.
I doubled the sauce, and enjoyed every bite. My husband liked this very much. I had orzo in the house and not quinoa but the substition worked just as well. Will make for brother-in-law next week! Paired with steamed carrots, delish.
As the other reviewer stated, the sauce was too think to drizzle. But overall the recipe was really good. My husband loved it.
