For Pesach: Apricot Chicken With Quinoa Almond Pilaf

For Pesach: Apricot Chicken With Quinoa Almond Pilaf
Quinoa has become quite a Passover phenomenon over the last few years (see the kashrus information at the bottom of the recipe). I’ve enjoyed the ingredient for many reasons. First, although it is not a grain (it’s a berry), it has a light grain-like texture so it feels filling and satiating on Passover. It’s a great alternative to potatoes and is full of protein. I make it year round with black beans and corn and other interesting ingredients like edamame. Serves 8 Chicken
