Step 1
Juice and zest 1 of the Lime (1) into a small saucepot.
Step 2
Add Water (1 1/2 cups) and bring to a boil. Add Quinoa (2/3 cup) , return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover and let simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork and keep warm until plating.
Step 3
In a large bowl, whisk together the Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (1/4 cup) , Dijon Mustard (1 Tbsp) , Honey (2 Tbsp) and Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) .
Step 4
Pat dry Chicken Breasts (2) with paper towels and season each breast with Salt (1/4 tsp) and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) . Add to bowl with the marinade.
Step 5
Evenly coat the chicken with the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
Step 6
Cut the Shallots (2) into 1/4 inch thin slices; place into the small bowl.
Step 7
Add the Rice Vinegar (2 Tbsp) and Granulated Sugar (1 tsp) to the bowl with the shallots. Stir to combine and hold.
Step 8
In another large bowl, juice the remaining Lime (1) and whisk in Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) , Salt (1/4 tsp) and the remaining Honey (2 Tbsp) . Stir to combine. Set the vinaigrette aside.
Step 9
Heat a medium sauté pan over medium high heat with Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) . When the oil is hot, add the chicken breasts and sear on each side for 4 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
Step 10
Remove the chicken breasts from the pan, let rest for 5 minutes and then cut into 1/2 inch diced pieces.
Step 11
Slice the Avocado (1) around the pit and separate the halves. Discard the pit. Score the flesh of the avocado into 1/2 inch chunks, being careful not to slice through the skin. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh, and add to the bowl with the vinaigrette.
Step 12
Cut the Cherry Tomatoes (2/3 cup) in half and add to the bowl. Add the Arugula (2 3/4 cups) and pickled shallots to the bowl; toss gently to combine.
