Chicken breast recipes

Ingredients:

*This recipe serves 1 person. Simply double the ingredients for 2 people, triple for 3, etc.

You will need:

1 boneless organic chicken breast

5 to 6 organic sun dried tomatoes

Small handful of fresh organic basil (remove stems)

3 tablespoons of  “Sun Dried Tomato Dressing” ~ see homemade recipe below ~

2 large handfuls of organic mesclun or field greens

1 tablespoon organic coconut oil

*I make my sun dried tomatoes in my dehydrator. I keep a jar of them, soaking in olive oil, in my refrigerator and it lasts me for weeks. They are great to have ready made for salads, lettuce wraps, or just to eat alone.

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2) Butterfly chicken breast. It should look like this:

Close chicken breast.

4) On your stove top in a stainless steel frying pan, pan-sear chicken on high heat using 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil for approximately 3 minutes on one side, then flip over and immediately put the entire pan, with the chicken, into the oven.

5) Leave chicken in oven for 8 to 10 minutes at the most. The chicken will be done when it’s cooked all the way through (there will be no pink inside).

6) Once it’s cooked, place the chicken whole, or let it cool for a few minutes and slice it into medallions on top of a bed of organic greens (2 large handfuls):
