Chicken breast is a lean protein, which means it’s low fat after the skin has been removed. Also, chicken is rich in vitamins B, B6, B12, C, D, E, niacin, and magnesium. Protein helps you feel fuller longer, and you don’t need to eat a lot of it to be satisfied; a serving size is about the size of your own palm (kids have smaller palms and that’s their serving size).
I love seasoning chicken with a lot of herbs, and there are so many combinations to tantalize your taste buds!
Three Easy Wild Oats Spiced Up Chicken Recipes
Makes 2-4 servings
2 4 ounce chicken breasts, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
The juice of one organic lemon
Spice Combo 1:
1 teaspoon Wild Oats organic garlic powder
1 teaspoon Wild Oats organic basil
1 Tablespoon Wild Oats organic Italian seasoning
Spice Combo 2:
1 teaspoon Wild Oats organic chili powder
1 teaspoon Wild Oats organic onion powder
1 Tablespoon Wild Oats organic curry powder
1 Tablespoon Wild Oats organic ground cumin
Spice Combo 3:
1 teaspoon Wild Oats organic cinnamon
1 teaspoon Wild Oats organic coriander
1 Tablespoon Wild Oats organic paprika
Place the raw chicken in a zip lock bag along with ¼ cup of the olive oil and herb blend of your choice. Get rid of the extra air in the bag, seal it and massage the spice blend onto the chicken, coating it.
In large skillet (you can use cast iron to bump up the iron content of the chicken through absorption during cooking) heat the remaining olive oil over medium heat.
Place coated chicken pieces in the pan, leaving some space in between them. Cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side, until juices of the chicken run clear. Turn off the heat, and squeeze lemon juice over the chicken.
Serve with your favorite grain and vegetables.
