Sweet-Chili Glaze

To make the pilaf, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add the scallions, garlic and cumin. Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add stock, quinoa and currants; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered, until quinoa is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and keep warm.

Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with salt. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spay and set over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning frequently and basting with glaze, until chicken is cooked through, about 6 minutes.
