Shredded Brussels sprouts are the new coleslaw, teamed up here with sweet cranberries and tangy feta cheese. Earthy quinoa cooks up so quickly it’s easy to make a small amount for coating tender chicken breasts—a nice counterpoint to the crunch of the salad. Bake Your Day created this recipe from an ingredient list submitted by Tanah B., who was a finalist in the Just BARE Chicken +5 Ingredient Challenge.


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Line a 9x9-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Cook quinoa according to package directions (you should end up with about ¾ cup cooked quinoa); cool.

  2. Place cooled quinoa in a shallow dish; season with salt and pepper. Pour 1/3 cup dressing in a second shallow dish. Dip chicken in dressing. Dredge in quinoa, pressing onto both sides. Place in prepared baking dish. Bake about 25 minutes or until no longer pink in center (165°F on an instant read thermometer.)

  3. Meanwhile, mix all salad ingredients in a large bowl; toss with 1/4 cup dressing. Slice warm chicken; serve over salad, drizzled with remaining dressing.
