Make up your marinade by combining the chipotle sauce, honey, Dijon mustard, crushed garlic, the juice of one lime, the stalks of the coriander and the olive oil. Cover your chicken breasts in the marinade and set aside for 30 minutes.
Pour everything into a frying pan and cook the chicken for 5 minutes on each side, before placing in a 180 degree oven for 10 minutes to finish the cooking process.
Meanwhile, bring your quinoa and chicken stock to the boil and then reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 15 minutes with the lid on. Remove from the heat and then stir through the coconut oil, diced spring onions and seasoning.
Serve your chicken breast with the lime quinoa, mixed lettuce leaves, sliced avocado and halved cherry tomatoes.
