Directions

1. In a large bowl or container, combine chicken, olive oil, garlic, lime juice and Italian seasoning. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Marinate chicken for 15 to 20 minutes, turning the chicken from time to time.

2. While chicken is marinating, cook quinoa according to package instructions and set aside.

3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook chicken breasts drained from the marinade for about 3-4 minutes per side, until golden and cooked through. Allow to cool down for a couple of minutes before slicing.

4. To make the sauce, combine Greek yogurt, garlic, lime juice, lime zest in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Drizzle with olive oil. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld; set aside.

5. Divide quinoa into bowls or meal prep containers. Top with cucumber, carrot, onion, sliced chicken, chopped scallion and sauce. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy! ♡
