EverRoast Chicken Quinoa Pilaf Recipe – Boar’s Head Certified Heart Healthy Meat

by Jenn

This post brought to you by Boar’s Head. All opinions are 100% mine.

My husband and I meet one another at the house almost daily for lunch.  It’s our hour of time together while the kids are at school, and the house is nice and quiet.  The last thing we want to do is eat leftovers or anything that’s time consuming.  Sandwiches are the way to go, my husband is super picky when it comes to the mean he puts on his sandwich.  I’m not as picky, but focus more on my health than my husband.  Which is why I’m excited to tell you about Boar’s Head certified heart-healthy deli meats.

Did you know that heart disease is the nation’s leading cause of death men and women?  It’s important for everyone to take eating right serious, it’s one of the most important and easiest ways to help take care of your heart.  Did you know that Boar’s Head offers dozens of premium certified heart-healthy deli meats that you can create awesome healthy recipes with?  They offer choices such as low in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and mean specified limits for sodium.

Boar’s Head carries several great products such as:

  • Cajun Style Smoked Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
  • Honey Smoked Turkey Breast (skinless)
  • All American BBQ Seasoned Roasted Chicken Breast
  • Chipotle Chick Breast
  • Black Forest Brand Boneless Smoked Ham
  • Branded Deluxe Ham
  • Cap-Off Cooked Top Round Corned Beef
  • All Natural Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roasted Beef

I tried EverRoast Oven Roasted Chicken Breast by Boar Head not long ago.  I have to say it super yummy, and since it’s both yummy and healthy you can bet I will be buying more of it.

The EverRoast Oven Roasted Chicken Breast is flavored to the max, it’s super yummy.  It’s seasoned with carrots, celery, onions, garlic, and parsley which gives it such an awesome flavor.  It can be used in just about anything.  I used for my sandwiches at lunch with my husband.  Normally my husband will say something negative if I don’t get certain brands of sandwich meat.  When I made his sandwich with Boars Head EverRoast Oven Raosted Chicken Breast to my surprise he liked it.  He noticed it was a different sandwich meat, and said it was great, and would taste great in a salad.  I would have to agree with him, it sure would be yummy in a salad with all the vegies.  I’m getting hungry already.

My husband and I are planning on buying the Oven Roasted Chicken again.  Did you know that you can make EverRoast Chicken Quinoa Pilaf using Boar’s Head Oven Roasted Chicken, and look how easy it is:

EverRoast Chicken Quinoa Pilaf Recipe

EverRoast Chicken Quinoa Pilaf Recipe - Boar's Head Certified Heart Healthy Meat 2


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup yellow onion (diced very fine)
  • 1 cup finely diced celery
  • 1 cup carrots finely sliced
  • 1cup dry quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups chicken stock (low sodium)
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • ½ pound EverRoast Oven Roasted Chicken Breast (diced)
  • 1 cup finely diced green onion


  1. Get your medium sized saucepan, add the oil and heat on medium.  Add in your yellow onion, celery, carrots, and cook.  You’ll need to stir frequently, until all the vegetables are soft (should be about 4 to 5 minutes)
  2. Now add the Quinoa, pepper and continue to stir vigorously until the grain is coated in the oil smells toasted. (Should take about 1 minute)
  3. Add your chicken stock, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer with lid on.  Cook until most of the liquid is absorbed. (This should take about 20 minutes)
  4. Turn off the heat and add raisins and your EverRoast Chicken Breast, cover, and allow to sit for about 10 minutes.
  5. You’re ready to place in the serving dish of your choice and top with green onion.

Now tell me that doesn’t sound super yummy! There is other great Good-for-your-heart recipes on the Boar’s Head website such as:

  • Lower Sodium Turkey & Lacey Swiss cheese Sandwich
  • Chicken & Blue Cheese Salad
  • Ham Hoppin Join Salad

I also give the Ever Roast Chicken Breast Two Thumps Up!  One for being super yummy and the other for being a heart-healthy deli meat.  Have you tried any Boar’s Head certified heart-healthy deli meats?  If so what’ your favorite kind.  If not, swing by and check out all Boar’s Head heart-healthy deli meats.

Love the recipe – looks very easy and tasty. But as a vegetarian I’d replace the stock with veggie stock and use tempeh or seitan instead of the chicken.

I have to say, Boars Head deli meats are wonderful. I thought ham was ham and turkey was turkey, but after sampling Boar’s Head, I’m convinced they are the best — worth a bit more than everyday meats!

Your recipe sounds good. My husband has heart problems, as well as diabetic problems so the only deli meat that we buy is Boars Head because it is a lot lower in sodium, aside from it tasting so much better.
