Currently working on a 30 day Paleo plan…it’s extremely time consuming, but I’m pleased with how it’s coming out. Stay tuned for that! Make sure you subscribe to the blog so you get the updates. 🙂
So I made one of my favorite dinners tonight, and figured it was time to share my recipe with my loyal followers. Takes about 15 minutes to prep, and 45 to prepare.
4 chicken breasts
4 TBSP grass fed butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 C white wine (I use moscato)
Juice from a lemon
1 TBSP capers, diced
20 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 C cashew meal
1/2 TBSP onion powder
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp sea salt
green beans – enough for 4 servings
1 TBSP EVOO
What you need to do:
In a small pot, melt 4 TBSP of grass fed butter; add the minced garlic, diced capers (or whole small ones), wine, and lemon juice. Let that reduce on a low heat. While you’re preparing your chicken put another pan on low heat with the EVOO and let it get warm. The egg, cashew meal, onion powder, oregano, and sea salt are for breading your chicken breasts. Now put your egg in one bowl and beat; in another bowl, put the other breading items and mix them up. Dredge the chicken in the egg, then the breading mixture, and place it on the hot pan. Leave it uncovered for now.
After the chicken starts to cook, pour the reduced sauce into the pan with the chicken. Put your halved cherry tomatoes in the pan with the chicken. While that starts to cook, steam or boil your green beans. After about 20 minutes I covered the pan with the chicken. I let it stay covered for about 10 minutes, then flipped the chicken. After I flipped the chicken I added a little bit more wine and butter (the chicken soaks up the sauce). Depending on how thick your chicken breasts are, will depend on time cooking time. I had thicker cuts so it took about 45 minutes to cook them through. When the chicken was done, I plated the breasts; put the green beans into the sauce pan, mixed it up, let it soak up the flavors for about 5 minutes or so, then plated that mixture. I poured a little juice on top of the breast…and VOILA!
This is by far one of the best things I think I make. My mom really enjoys my breaded chicken…and that’s saying a lot. 🙂 The cashew meal, which I got from Trader Joe’s, was a nice change from the coconut flour (which is my go-to). I know the wine isn’t so Paleo, but it cooks down and adds nice flavor…so comments about that are not needed. 😉
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
