Image

I am so excited about our 2014 Macks Mo Momentum Challenge that I just had to give you a “taste”! 🙂 Part of our “saute” series in the nutritional programming, this is one of my favorite go-to “flash” meals (it only takes a flash to make!), featuring seasonal vegetables and some seriously good flavor. Enjoy!

WARM COCONUT CHICKEN + BEET & BRUSSELS SPROUT SAUTE
IN THE MORNING: SET CHICKEN OUT TO THAW
INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 organic, free-range chicken breasts (local if possible), cut into strips
  • 8 small purple beets, scrubbed with brush, ends chopped off & cut into ¼’s (make sure these are cut small)
  • 1 lbs. Brussels sprouts, ends chopped off, then cut in ½
  • 2 Tbls. coconut oil
  • ¼ cup dried, unsweetened coconut
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 handfuls of organic spinach

DIRECTIONS:
#1:  Cut the chicken breasts into strips and add to a large sauté pan with the coconut oil and coconut, cooking on medium heat.
#2:  Prepare, wash and chop beets + Brussels sprouts.
#3:  In a large sautoir pan:

  • Add vegetables + ½ cup water and cover. Steam for 12 minutes (while chicken is still cooking). Check “doneness” with fork – want beets to be soft in middle.
  • Once timer is up, drain water from vegetable pan and add in the chicken mix, plus ½ cup sunflower seeds + 2 handfuls of spinach. Cook together for 2 more minutes, then serve! Season with sea salt + pepper to taste.
