Quinoa Parmesan Crusted Chicken and Kale Chips

If today is the first time you are visiting the blog this week, this week’s posts are 5 recipes made from 9 ingredients.  Each of the 9 ingredients are used at least twice (at least the chicken).  These ingredients are the ones I find the most in my refrigerator and I wanted to only have to prep one day on the weekend, which in turn would only make my prep time during the wee 2-15 minutes.

Here are the nine ingredients and measurements for the 5 recipes this week:

1 Large Sweet potato

3 Cups Uncooked Quinoa (we will be making it two ways!)

1 Bunch of Dinosaur Kale

1 1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt

6 TBSP Parmesan Cheese

2 Chicken Breasts

1 Package Raspberries

1 1/2 Cup Milk

1/2 Cup Peanut Butter

 

9 Ingredients for the Week!
