Detox Day 12 - Mediterranean Chicken

Dinner: Day 12 brings a craving for something exotic. Mediterranean food sounded good, since it's very healthy food. All I had to do to "detox" this dish was substitute the dairy that's usually use in the marinade to tenderize the chicken. It does take a few hours to tenderize, but it's worth it, I promise. I made some brown rice with turmeric for color topped with olives and a side of baba ghanoush. Hummus would be good, too.

4 chicken breasts
For marinade:
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1/4 apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp of smooth almond butter
  • 2 tsp of olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp of minced garlic
  • 1/2 Tbsp of paprika
  • 1/2 tsp of dried thyme 
  • 1/2 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 lemon juice (and zest)
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of pepper

Paso a paso:
1) In a large bowl, mix all marinade ingredients.

2) Add chicken breasts and cover. Marinade overnight.

3) Grilling chicken is best, but since it's winter I used our cast iron grill to get these nice lines. Cook chicken thoroughly, about 8 minutes on each side on medium heat.

5) Provecho!
