Nutritious coconut chicken with quinoa
In this meal, you get all the building blocks of the body while it is wonderfully tasty. It contains high quality fats from coconut cream, avocado, real butter/ghee, feta/goat cheese and pumpkin seeds. Complete protein from chicken and feta cheese/goat cheese. Complex carbohydrates from the quinoa and an extra nutritional boost from turmeric (combined with black pepper) and nutritional yeast that is rich in vitamin B.
For about 2 servings you need:
2-3 chicken fillets
Measure quinoa according to directions
Possibly some vegetable such as cabbage or broccoli
About 1 teaspoon turmeric, 1 teaspoon ginger, black pepper, herbal salt, Coconut Aminos, onion powder, garlic powder and salt
Top with feta cheese/goat cheese, pumpkin seeds and nutritional yeast
Cook quinoa according to instructions (approx. 15 min). Chop the chicken fillets into smaller pieces and fry in a good dollop of butter/ghee on medium heat for a few minutes. Season well with herb salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, turmeric and dried ginger, a little cayenne pepper and fry for a few more minutes. Add 2-3 tablespoons of Coconut Aminos (fermented coconut nectar and sea salt, a sweet/salty soy substitute) and about 2 dl of coconut cream. Bring to a boil and then simmer covered over medium heat until the chicken is done (about 10 more minutes).
Feel free to stir 1/2 teaspoon of ghee and 1-2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast into the quinoa for an extra good taste and nutritional boost. Serve with the chicken on top and top with your favorites such as avocado, fried broccoli, pumpkin seeds or crumbled feta/goat cheese.
