  1. Cook quinoa according to package directions, adding the salt. Meanwhile, combine Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs in large resealable food storage bag. Place Egg Beaters in shallow dish.
  2. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Dip chicken in Egg Beaters, coating all sides. Place in cheese mixture; shake bag to coat evenly. Place coated chicken in skillet. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in centers, turning occasionally.
  3. Pour 1 can of tomato sauce over chicken in skillet; gently stir to coat with sauce. Heat 2 minutes more or until sauce is hot. Reduce heat to low. Sprinkle chicken with mozzarella cheese; let stand until cheese melts. Stir remaining 1 can of tomato sauce into cooked quinoa; heat until hot. Divide quinoa between 6 plates. Top evenly with chicken.

Cook's Tip

Quinoa typically is found in the rice and pasta section of supermarkets. Rinse well before cooking to remove the natural bitter coating, if it is not pre-washed.
