Paleo Garlic Chicken
Whoa! Today's WOD was great (in a tortuous, lovely, awful, fun sort of way)! The kind of WOD you feel coursing through your veins all day long! So... I thought I would counter-act with garlic!? This was a very flavorful and yummy meal! Just make sure you are not the only one partaking... It's pretty garlicky... and not meant to be eaten alone! But, we all enjoyed it!
Maybe tomorrow's CrossFit class will be the ones to suffer the repercussions of the garlic!? I apologize in advance! :-)
4 boneless-skinless chicken breasts, pounded and cut in half
25 whole cloves of garlic (yes, twenty-five! ... Well, more or less) :-)
1/2 C white wine
1/4 C low fat coconut milk
2 tsp. lemon juice
2 T fresh Italian parsley, chopped
ground black pepper
1 T olive oil
celtic grey sea salt (totally optional)
In a large skillet, heat oil on medium heat. After pounding chicken breasts, sprinkle seasonings over breasts. Brown for about 3-5 minutes on both sides. Place chicken breasts in baking dish (sprayed with some olive oil cooking spray). Add whole garlic cloves over chicken pieces. Sprinkle a tad of celtic grey sea salt over the top! In a separate bowl, combine wine, coconut milk, lemon juice, and parsley. Pour over the top of the chicken and bake at 350 degree oven (covered) for about 25 minutes! Makes about 6 servings.
Zone blocks: 3 F, 3 P, 1 C
I served this with a green salad and steamed asparagus to balance out blocks!
Hope you enjoy! :-)
