Description

Chicken thighs packed with flavors of garlic and herbs.


Scale

Ingredients

1 lb boneless & skinless free-range chicken thighs

1 tsp. Primal Palate’s Amore seasoning* (or your favorite Italian seasoning)

2 garlic cloves (finely minced)

1/4 tsp. turmeric

1/4 tsp. smoked paprika

2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/4 tsp. crack black pepper

2 tbsp. ghee

1 onion (sliced)

1 red jalapeño (diced)

1/4 cup organic chicken broth

FOR CAULIFLOWER RICE:

1 tbsp. ghee or olive oil

2 12- ounce packages of frozen riced cauliflower

2 scallions (finely chopped)

salt and pepper


Instructions

To begin, pat chicken thighs dry and cut them into cubes. Transfer the chicken to a mixing bowl and add the Amore/Italian seasoning, garlic, turmeric, paprika, parsley, sea salt, and black pepper. Toss the chicken to make sure it’s coated with the seasoning.

Now, heat 2 tablespoons of ghee in a deep skillet over high heat. Add the chicken and lower the heat to medium-high. Sear the chicken while continuously stirring for about 5-7 minutes or until the chicken starts to develop some color. Now, add the onions and jalapeño pepper, stir and sauté for a few minutes until the onions are tender (about 7 minutes). Then add the chicken broth to deglaze the pan. Lower the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Then taste and season with more salt if necessary.

In a separate non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of ghee (or your fat of choice) over high heat and add the riced cauliflower. Sauté cauliflower (continuously stirring) for 5-7 minutes until cauliflower is tender. Then, stir in scallions and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve Chicken family style with cauliflower rice.
