I have been in need of fast recipes this week and here is one I made for lunch yesterday that was so tasty that it really felt like I put more effort into the dish than I actually did! Paleo food never has to be boring! Use your spice cabinet to keep your meals exciting, even on your busiest days.
Look forward to my next post in which I will give you another sneak peak inside the Everyday Paleo book!
Chicken and Chard
2 tablespoons coconut oil
5 garlic cloves, minced
½ red onion, diced
2 bunches of rainbow chard, roughly chopped
1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
1 – 4oz can of roasted diced green chiles
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon of ground allspice
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Small handful of raisins and raw sliced almonds for garnish
In a large wok or skillet heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until they start to turn translucent. Add the chicken and cook for 3-5 minutes or until almost cooked through. Add the garlic and saute together with the chicken and onions for another 2-3 minutes. Add the salt, pepper, cumin, allspice, and the can of chiles and mix well. Add the chard and cook until the chard is wilted, about another 3-4 minutes. Serve with a sprinkle of raisins and almonds. Serves 4.
As always, Enjoy!!
