Quinoa Crusted Chicken with Creamy BBQ Sauce

I thought this looked interesting.  I saw a Quinoa Crusted Chicken in the latest Rachael Ray Magazine and thought it sounded interesting.

So I took the idea and did my own sweeter take on it.

I hope you enjoy my Quinoa Crusted Chicken with Creamy BBQ Sauce.  quinoa is an interesting grain.. I love that it cooks in the same time it takes white rice to cook!

Serves 1 chicken breast
