7. Herby Chicken Breasts
These chicken breasts go great with a stir fry, rice or potatoes. Chicken is packed with protein and easy on the stomach so makes for an easy-to-digest meal.
Ingredients (serves 4):
2 chicken breasts (skinless and boneless)
2 tsp sesame oil
½ onion, diced
½ inch fresh ginger, minced
½ tsp lime zest, grated
1 cup cilantro
1 cup spearmint
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp salt
Make a marinade by placing the spearmint, cilantro, onion, ginger and salt on a chopping board and chop until the herbs become wet and the ingredients turn into a rough paste. Put the paste into a bowl and add the lime zest, sesame oil and some pepper to taste.
Slice the chicken crosswise to make four pieces, then butterfly the breast pieces by pressing your palm down on the top of the chicken and slicing ¾ way through the center of each piece and then fold out. Using a mallet, pound each chicken piece until they are flat and even and around twice the size. Spread each piece with the marinade and then pound a few times more and then flip the chicken over and repeat.
Heat a medium-sized skillet over a medium to high heat and some of the olive oil, fry each chicken piece separately until cooked through and keep warm until they are all finished. Serve with your choice of accompaniment.
