Golden Sautéed Chicken

You could always do this same thing but with Tempeh/Tofu, it is so super easy!! Because with these you put in the work on the front end cutting the chicken up into nice stir fryable pieces, these cook up quickly and turned out nice and juicy! I used a rather eclectic blend of seasoning that turned out very tasty!

I used:

1.24 lbs chicken breast tenders, cut into 1 in chunks
Coconut oil spray

Salt, 1/4 tsp

Pepper, 1/4tsp

Crushed red pepper, 1/8 tsp

Garlic powder/onion powder, 1 tsp

Dill, 1 tsp

Basil/oregano, 1/2 tsp

Turmeric, 1 tsp

Ginger powder, 1/2 tsp
Literally all I did was put the chicken chunks in a large bowl then add all the spices above. Garlic powder, turmeric, and dill were the heaviest in amounts, and then tossed it all well to ensure even coating. Then I sprayed a cast iron skillet with coconut oil and heated to medium and cooked the chicken about 3 to 4 minutes on each side until no longer pink. FLatter pieces of chicken will cook up more quickly, so just keep an eye on those, letting plumper pieces cook longer. That is it!! Makes easy meal prep for the week! Serve with veggies of choice or I recommend serving over some sweet potato noodles and sautéed veggies!

Chocolate Coconut Protein Cookies (Flourless)

These healthy cookies are slightly crisp on the outside, soft and chewy inside! Not too sweet, great texture with the coconut, very satisfying, and best right out of the oven! You could actually refrigerate them for a no-bake cookie option like little cookie bites, but I prefer them baked. They are actually sweeter un-baked, so see what you think, but I love the mellow taste and yummy texture baked.

First put in a food processor:
1/2 cup dates (5-6 large medjool)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup raw walnuts
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbs cocoa powder
1/4 cup applesauce

Puree into a creamy chocolate pudding texture.

Pour into a bowl and stir in:
2tbs ground flax
1tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup shredded coconut
1 scoop french vanilla vega protein powder
2 tbs chia seeds
1 cup rolled oats
pinch baking soda
pinch salt

Combine well, roll into little balls and place on non-stick cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for 12-15 min and enjoy! I like mine a little crispier, but start with 12 min and then see. They make good work snacks/ portable breakfast, etc!
