OH I’m not done. Olive oil, parsley, and turmeric are all on the key list of ingredients from Dr. Li’s research that I wrote about in my berry salad recipe post that help starve cancer cell growth. So really, the goodness is all up in here.
What you need:
3-4 pieces of chicken breast
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp fresh ginger (grated)
2 tsp lemon pepper spice (I use a McCormick blend, but it’s just black pepper, lemon, and salt)
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp curry
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp celery seed
1 cup water
Dash of olive oil
What to do:
1. Cut chicken breasts into smaller thin strips. Set aside.
2. Mix oil, shallots, ginger, and spices together in a small skillet and cook on medium heat for about 3-5 minutes.
3. Place chicken in skillet with water and a dash of olive oil. Cook until nearly done. (I cook it this way, because it’s much healthier than cooking it in oil, however you may choose to pan sear it). Make sure water evaporates completely- if it’s not gone, then pour the rest of the water out before adding spices.
4. Add the spice and oil mixture to skillet. Coat chicken pieces evenly and cook for an addition 3-5 minutes until chicken is completely done.
5. Add a dash of extra olive oil and enjoy with some brown rice and or fresh veggies- my choice is roasted brussel sprouts… yummmm.
