Ingredients

TURMERIC SPICE MIX:

  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Korean pepper flakes

VINAIGRETTE:

  • 1/2 tsp. fresh orange juice
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove (finely minced)
  • 1 tbsp. fresh dill weed
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. raw honey
  • salt and pepper to taste

OTHER INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 4- ounce chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp. grass-fed ghee
  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 cups chopped kale leaves
  • 2 baby cucumbers (sliced)
  • 1 green apple (sliced)
  • 2 radishes-sliced (optional)

Instructions

  1. Begin by stirring together all the ingredients for the spice mixture and set it aside. Now, place the chicken breasts in a ziplock bag, squeeze out all the air, close and use a meat mallet to flatten the chicken until its even. Remove the chicken breasts from the bag and sprinkle with spice mixture (a little of the spice mixture may be leftover). Now, heat the ghee in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken breast for 5-7 minutes on both sides. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  2. Now, add all the ingredients for the dressing to a mason jar and shake to combine. Add kale and romaine to a mixing bowl and toss with a couple tablespoons of the vinaigrette. Transfer the greens to a serving dish, add cucumber, apple, radishes and sliced chicken breasts. Serve with remaining vinaigrette and enjoy.
