IT’S TIME TO SEND BLAND CHICKEN ON A VACATION
Clean eating doesn’t have to be difficult. We recognize the struggle to hit your nutrition goals because we’re people, too. Eating the same bland combo of chicken and brown rice, chicken and broccoli, chicken and zucchini, chicken and chicken with chicken sauce (you know, that slightly charred, brown juice in the grill gutter) can get old really quick. Some days you’d rather take a bite out of the spatula you use to flip your chicken instead of the actual chicken itself, because variety is what makes life great.
Well, you’re in luck — we took a trip around the world (really just the Quest Kitchen) to create and share some of our tastiest recipes inspired by international favorites. Get your flavor passport ready, because you’re about to embark on a taste vacation.

Let’s face it, Indian food is pretty much awesome. What isn’t awesome? Tons of sauce that’s loaded with sugar and carbs…and all that rice? Sure, on a cheat day, bring it on, but you’ve got goals you need to hit. You can’t indulge in some delicious Indian cuisine whenever you have the cravings…or can you? Answer: Yes. We slashed the carbs and upped the protein in our Chicken Tandoori. So the next time you reach for your skillet and a chicken breast for the same bland-tasting meal, why not spice things up with a little help from Quest Cooking? Here’s the FULL RECIPE.

Chicken is great, breaded chicken is better…unless you just had your cheat day yesterday and you have to wait a whole week to feed the carb beast. Well don’t capsize the gondola just yet, because we’re putting “breaded” Chicken Parm back on the table. The “crust” of the chicken is pure protein thanks to Quest Protein Chips and Quest Multi-Purpose Mix Protein Powder. Top everything off with some parmesean cheese, a bit of homemade tomato sauce and a kiss of basil and everyone at your dinner table will suddenly say “delizioso” even though they don’t speak Italian.
