This a nice main dish salad. I smoked the chicken with apple wood then finished it on the grill with the glaze. If you aren't into smoking like me; grilling or oven roasting works fine. I took the skin off after smoking to reducing fat content a bit. The quinoa can be eaten hot, cold or at room temperature depending on your taste. I served it slightly warm. For a wine I chose Viansa's 2010 Signature Series Emery Ranch Sonoma Valley Syrah. It has 3% Primativo and 2% Cabernet added to the Syrah. It makes for an intense but well structured wine. It has less tannin with more mouth feel and a nice finish compared to some heavier 100% Syrah's.
