My mom recently introduced me to Poultry Brine (what I use—> Turkey Brine). It’s a seasoning for turkey/chicken that you mix in water and marinate poultry in. I cannot emphasize enough how moist and tender this makes the chicken.

I wanted to share about this seasoning because it is MUST HAVE in my pantry now! Especially for this recipe.

But back to this recipe. It takes only 20 minutes, and is protein-rich from both the quinoa and chicken. This dreamy sticky, sweet glaze is super simple but is SERIOUSLY my favorite chicken glaze ever.

I’m also determine to eat grilled food as much as I possibly can before the summer is over!

So cheers to the summer and grilling season still upon us! Serve and enjoy this dinner with your favorite fresh greens tossed together and a glass of white wine.

Recipe Notes

Use brine from above to marinate chicken if you want to have a super moist chicken! I marinate my chicken with 1 cup water and brine seasoning for 3-6 hours. Skip this step if desired! It will not affect how delicious the chicken will be.
