Each protein-packed bite of this healthy snack is full of quinoa, ham, cheese, and chicken. No need to flatten chicken for this Chicken Cordon Bleu!

It is officially my Spring Break now!  Which means a week of serious Spring cleaning, cooking like mad, and running has just begun!
See, I finally hit the 10 pounds lost mark this week and it rejuvenated my motivation to get rid of as much of these last 30ish pounds as I can before my dear friend Maryam’s wedding this May!

You know what doesn’t help you lose weight?  Hollandaise sauce.

I thought it would go perfectly with these bites…and it does….but you know how some things are just ruined when you figure out how they’re made?

I had never made a hollandaise sauce before.  I knew it wasn’t a healthy sauce, but did you know that the primary ingredient is butter?

I will most likely still order it at restaurants on occasion (I can’t give up the Egg & I’s Cambridge Skillet forever!), but I don’t think I’ll be making it at home anymore.

But the quinoa bites?  I’ll definitely be making them again.

I love that these little guys let me incorporate ham, chicken, and cheese, but still keep the calorie count pretty low.

And I love that I can have all of the flavors of chicken cordon bleu without having to flatten and stuff a chicken breast!

Now, I’m off to throw the 70 billionth load of laundry in the washer and cook corned beef and cabbage hash to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day appropriately.  😉
