Apple Pecan Chicken

Apple Pecan Chicken

I absolutely love ONE PAN dishes! All the spices used in this dish are such a delicious compliment to the apples! This recipe uses coconut milk to keep it dairy-free and at ALL Diet Levels. However, if you are on Diet Level 6, then you may substitute half and half or heavy cream. Serve this dish with cauliflower rice or red potatoes and a salad and you’ll have an economical and quick meal on the table in no time!!

Instructions
  1. Begin by heating a large skillet to medium high heat.
  2. Prepare your chicken breasts (or thighs) by pounding them to be thinner, and possibly cutting (breasts) in half (if they are HUGE).
  3. In a small bowl stir together the cumin, cinnamon, cardamom and salt. Coat or rub the chicken with spices.
  4. Add 2 tbsp olive oil to your pan once hot, and begin to cook the chicken or thighs. Sear on each side for 2-3 minutes (depending on thickness of chicken). Chicken does not need to be fully cooked, but almost cooked. Set aside and cover with foil.
  5. Place remaining olive oil in the skillet and add garlic, apples, and pecans. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until apples soften and pecans are fragrant. Continue to scrape the bottom of the pan to collect spices from the chicken.
  6. Pour in coconut milk, and scrape the bottom of the pan to flavor the sauce. Add chicken back to the skillet.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together arrowroot starch and water. Pour into the pan.
  8. Cover with a lid and let the mixture cook for another 3-5 minutes, or until the mixture is thickened and chicken is cooked through.
  9. Serve immediately over rice, greens, or vegetable noodles.

Instructions
  1. Combine turkey (or other ground meat), diced apple, onion powder, spices in a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly with a large spoon or your hands.
  2. Using hands, form meat mixture into 12 small patties. (Thin is good because they will shrink and fatten up in the pan a bit.)
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is hot, add oil (about ½ tbsp. per batch of patties, depending on the size of your pan).
  4. Add the patties to the pan, being careful not to overcrowd them or it's difficult to flip them and they won't brown as well. Cook for approximately 3-4 minutes per side until browned and no longer pink in the center.
  5. Remove patties to a plate lined with a paper towel and repeat with remaining oil and turkey mixture.
Recipe Notes

Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. May be frozen for longer storage. To cook from frozen, add to a small pan with few drops of water. Heat over medium-low heat covered with a lid for 5-8 minutes or until heated through.
