Boil the quinoa until tender, drain, then spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes until lightly toasted then let cool completely, breaking up any clumps using your fingers. Quinoa Crusted Chicken2

In one dish place the quinoa, in another combine together the mustard and thyme. Lightly coat the chicken with mustard, then in the quinoa - turning and pressing in the quinoa until completely coated. Give the chicken tops a light spray with cooking oil, this will prevent the quinoa from drying out too much as it bakes.
