  • 1 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk

  • 1/4 cup unsalted dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 pkg. (3.5 oz.) goat cheese or 2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese

Instructions

FOR CHICKEN:
ARRANGE chicken in 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Drizzle with lime juice. Season with salt and black pepper. Drizzle with tablespoon of olive oil. Marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours.

GRILL or broil chicken for about 6 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in center.

FOR SPICY QUINOA SAUCE:
HEAT 2 tablespoons olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and pepper paste. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat; let stand for 5 minutes.

PLACE milk, quinoa, peanuts and onion mixture in blender or food processor; cover. Blend until smooth. Add the cheese; pulse a few times to blend. Return sauce to skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes or until creamy and heated through. Season with salt and pepper. (Makes about 2 cups)

TO SERVE, arrange chicken breasts on platter. Pour sauce over chicken.

TIPS:
• If sauce is too thick for your preference, thin with remaining evaporated milk.
• The sauce can be made a day ahead, covered and refrigerated until ready to use. To reheat, dilute with more evaporated milk as needed.
