Personal Protein Pot


for 1 serving

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ cup soy sauce (60 mL)
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • ½ cup dry quinoa (85 g), rinsed
  • 1 ½ cups chicken stock (360 mL)
  • ½ cup sliced carrot (55 g)
  • ½ cup snap peas (50 g), ends trimmed
  • ½ cup shredded red cabbage (50 g)
  • ½ cup sliced bell pepper (50 g)
  • ½ cup broccoli florets (75 g)
  • 1 large egg
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  • sliced scallion, for garnish
  • toasted sesame seed, for garnish


  1. In a small measuring cup, whisk together the garlic, ginger, sesame oil, honey, and soy sauce.
  2. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the sauce over the chicken breast in a small bowl and set the rest aside for serving. Toss the chicken in the sauce to coat.
  3. Cook the chicken in a small nonstick saucepan over medium heat until golden brown on one side, then flip and cook the other side until the internal temperature reaches at least 165°F (75°C), about 10 minutes total. Remove the chicken from the pot. Let rest for 5 minutes, then slice.
  4. Add the quinoa and chicken stock to the same pot. Stir the quinoa and bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and place a metal strainer over the simmering quinoa.
  5. Add the carrot, snap peas, red cabbage, bell pepper, broccoli, and egg to the strainer. Sprinkle with salt, then cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the strainer from the pot, then fluff the quinoa. Peel the egg and cut in half lengthwise.
  7. Arrange the chicken and steamed veggies atop the quinoa. Top with the sliced avocado and egg. Pour over the reserved sauce, then garnish with scallions and toasted sesame seeds.
  8. Enjoy!
