Advanced Plan & Core Plan
Makes 2 small (individual sized) pizzas
CHICKEN: For a quick way to prepare chicken if you don’t have any on hand. Take a breast or 2 and pound to 1/4 inch thickness with a meat mallet. Sprinkle with sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder and sautee in grapeseed oil until browned and cooked through
CHEESE: The best cheese for this recipe is Beyond Organic Cheddar.
This is one of those “go-to” meals that is easy to do, uses common ingredients, is great for lunch the next day, and is appealing to everyone. When buying red bell peppers, buy a few extra. When you get them home, seed and slice the ones you have left, wrap them in parchment paper, put in a freezer bag and save for later. You can use the frozen peppers in this sauce, to add to stir frys, soups, hummus, etc.
Advanced & Core Plan
3-4 cloves garlic, pressed
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tbsp smoked paprika
Zest + Juice of 2 limes
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp dried cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
6 Chicken breasts or chicken parts (bone-in, skin removed if desired)
1 cup organic chicken stock
Cilantro, for garnish
Process all ingredients (except chicken and cilantro) in a food processor until smooth. Pour over chicken and marinate for 4hrs to overnight.
Heat skillet to med-high heat and add 1-2 tablespoons coconut or grapeseed oil. Brown chicken for about 10 minutes. Transfer chicken to a baking dish. Add remaining marinade and 1 cup chicken stock. Bake at 350 degrees for another 25-30 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
This was by far, the best holiday turkey I’ve made to date. The brining process guarantees a tender, flavorful turkey. You will not believe the difference! After brining, I follow my “regular” turkey recipe from my book.
- 1 cup salt
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
- 1 orange, cut into wedges
- 1 medium onion, cut into wedges
- 3 cloves garlic
- 4 bay leaves
- 1 tablespoon dried thyme
- 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
- cold water to completely cover turkey
- Place salt, lemons, oranges, onion, garlic, bay leaves, thyme and pepper into a large pot. Place the turkey in the pot, and fill with water and two large bowls of ice. Refrigerate overnight. Discard brine after removing turkey.
- Proceed with your normal turkey preparation process (you will not need much salt because the turkey will already be salty from the brine)
