Grilled Chicken on Chickpea Quinoa Salad

This easy, healthy meal is made possible thanks to From The Sun Oils! I used their walnut oil which is a natural anti-aging remedy, improves circulation, decreases chance of heart attacks, and lowers cholesterol naturally!

I not only love to use it in my recipes, but use it as a makeup remover! It hydrates delicate skin under the eyes and naturally decreases dark circles due to circulation properties (and is anti-wrinkle too!). You can also refrigerate for a refreshing eye cream before bed.Processed with VSCO with s3 preset

I love quinoa salad. There is an endless possibility of combinations – you can never get bored. These flavors went amazing together with a Mediterranean feel. I made the quinoa salad, added grilled the chicken, and topped with arugula with a squeeze of fresh lemon. Delicious. Can meal prep for healthy lunches for the week or impress guests.


Quinoa Salad:

  • 1/2 cup From the Sun Walnut Oil 
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 diced red pepper
  • 1 diced yellow
  • 3 cloves diced garlic
  • 1 can rinsed garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed
  • 2 cups arugula


  • 2 organic boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Herbs:
    • Herbs de Provence (oregano, thyme, rosemary blend)
    • Himalayan Salt
    • Pepper


Grill chicken in sauté pan stove top:

  1. Slice chicken breasts in half to thin, but keep connected
  2. Heat 2 tbsp coconut oil in pan on medium
  3. Add chicken to pan. Add Himalayan salt, pepper, 1/2 lemon squeezed, and Herbs de Provence. Flip after 5 minutes and golden brown.
  4. Season other side of chicken breast. Saute for 5 additional minutes.
  5. Set aside, let chicken rest on plate/ cutting board away from heat. Cutting into it to early will leave it dry.

Prepare Quinoa Salad:

  1. Add all quinoa salad ingredients to large bowl except arugula
  2. Mix together
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste

Finally, add quinoa salad to plate. Top with a handful of arugula, grilled chicken, drizzle of walnut oil and a squeeze of lemon. Garish with red pepper flakes for a kick!
