Thai Chicken Quinoa Dumplings

 Healthy dinner demonstrations for Perth businesses

I know I've said this before, but I'm a huge fan of leftovers! This recipe makes 20 balls, so there's plenty of leftovers!  These Thai Chicken & Quinoa balls are great with a salad for dinner, for lunch & also a snack on the run. They are high in protein, fibre & taste delicious. You can read up on the health benefits of Quinoa here: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/274745.php
