I was recently at Blogher and was invited to the Alpina Happy Hour Suite for a cocktail and some recipe taste testing. Alpina was founded in Colombia (my country of birth) and has now moved into the US market and will be in Canada soon enough! This is an iconic brand that has been around since the 1930s and is very familiar to anyone in South America.
At the Alpina Happy Hour, they had a selection of tasty treats that you could sample, all made with Alpina yoghurt. They were delicious. There were a few that really caught my eye and I enjoyed so I thought I would share them with you.
Today’s recipe is in keeping with my love for chicken. As you may already know, I am a Brand Ambassador for Chicken Farmers of Canada. I love to promote this very healthy protein option whenever I can. Finding great recipes is easy on the Chicken.ca website but every once in a while, I come across others that I want to share with you.
1 container of Alpina Revive Honey Greek yogurt or Vanilla Bean with Chai Spice granola
1 cup whole grain cereal flakes
8 oz organic chicken tenders or 1 boneless skinless chicken breast cut into strips
½ teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
DIRECTIONS / STEPS
