Equipment

Ingredients

For the Roasted Sweet Potato

  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

For the Shredded Chicken

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 tsp. salt

For the Salad

  • ¼ cup quinoa - cooked
  • ¼ cup green olives - sliced
  • ½ cup cucumbers - sliced
  • ½ cup cherry tomatos - sliced
  • 1 cup kale
  • 1 tbsp. goji berries
  • walnuts - a small handful

Instructions

  • Make the roasted sweet potato. Pre-heat oven to 400. Slice a sweet potato into small, bite-size pieces. Toss with 2 tbsp. of olive oil in a medium-size bowl, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour onto a foil-lined baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes. Set aside when done.
  • While your sweet potato roasts, make your shredded chicken. Place a chicken breast in a pot with a tsp. of salt, and cover it with water, a half-inch above it. Simmer on low for 18-20 minutes, until the center reaches 160 degrees. Remove and use 2 forks to shred apart the chicken. Season with any spices you like. Set aside.
  • While your chicken boils and your potato roasts, boil your quinoa. Add ¼ cup quinoa to a half cup of water (or double the recipe to have more left over). Boil for 15 minutes or follow instructions on your brand of quinoa if they differ. Set aside when done.
  • When the first 3 ingredients are finished, slice cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and olives. Combine with all cooked ingredients, goji berries and walnuts into a delicious salad.
