Cilantro Lime Quinoa and Sesame Ginger Chicken

This is probably one of the easiest dinners to prepare.  Just a few ingredients and you're set for a dinner that gives you protein, carbs and fats. This is also a great meal to prep, cook up a bunch of chicken breasts and double or triple the quinoa portions so you can enjoy for 3-4 days.


TIME TO CONSUME: This can be a post training meal (think 1-2hour post training after you've had your recovery shake) or just one of your meals throughout the day.
