- To make salad, place carrots in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Set aside.
- In a saucepan heat oil and gently cook chilli, spring onion greens and courgettes. When vegetables are tender add dried spices and cook for 1 minute. Add beans.
- While vegetables are cooking rinse quinoa in a sieve then place in a small saucepan with stock. Bring to the boil and simmer gently, stirring from time to time, until all liquid has been absorbed and quinoa is fluffy.
- Add cooked quinoa and coriander to spiced vegetable mixture and mix well. Gently fold through chicken, cover and heat gently until chicken is heated through.
