Quick Trip Chicken

Did you ever read Fox in Socks to your kids? Or maybe you’re a youngster and it was read to you? It’s a Dr. Seuss tongue-twister and one of my family’s favorites. The name of this dish always makes me think of that book. This is totally irrelevant, but I wanted to share. And if you’re not familiar with Fox in Socks, please read it – preferably to children who will get a kick out of teasing you about your inability to read it well. 🙂

Onto the recipe! When we were on the road this past summer, my goal was to eat real food almost the entire time, with some carefully chosen treat meals (Gluten free deep dish pizza in Chicago, oh, how we love thee!). But we were out hiking and exploring for long days, so even though I was committed to cooking dinner, it had to be fast. We ate a lot of salad, roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli. Probably our favorite protein was this Quick Trip Chicken. All you do is pan sautĂ© some boneless, skinless chicken breasts in grass-fed butter or ghee, then finish it with some coconut anions. It’s hardly even a recipe, but it’s so tasty. While the chicken browns, get your veggies ready. If you want to make the roasted sweet potatoes, get those going first because they will take longer than the chicken. The butter and aminos work together to make a yummy sauce that is super good on broccoli too. And that’s it!

We are now enjoying Quick Trip Chicken at home on the regular, because really, most days at home are just as busy and tiring as those days on the road. A dinner that gets on the table in 30 minutes or less is always welcome!

I hope you enjoy this one!

P.S. If you haven’t used coconut aminos yet, please buy some. It adds that dash of flavor that most dishes need. You can find it locally in many stores, but my favorite is Thrive Market’s house brand. Find more about Thrive Market here.
