Chicken Quinoa Patties | 30 Mins meals

Looking for a healthy protein packed dinner? Try my chicken quinoa patties which come together in 30 mins or less. I love to serve this with a fresh salad or steamed greens, they also do well on their own for a substantial snack. It's moist, fragrant, delicous and spicy, the way I like it. This recipe also freezes well, so they are great to meal prep as well.
