Asian Chicken Patties

I get in these moods where I crave Asian food like no other. I could easily pick up an order of pad thai and general tsaos, but the healthy Breeanna knows she can make a dish to quench these cravings without all the excess MSG, gluten, etc.

Side Note: MSG is put in foods to make it more palatable (AKA tasty) so you end up eating more than your body wants.

Ok, so chicken patties are far from general tsaos, but between the sweetness of the coconut aminos and spiciness of the ginger the ooey gooeyness of the general tsaos becomes (somewhat) undesirable.

I plopped my chicken patties over a bed of mesclun greens and sprouts and added in some water chestnuts, purple radishes, baby corns and hemp seeds!

 

Ingredients:

  • ground chicken
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp. Root and Bones Cordyceps (great adaptogen for stress relief)
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ~8 water chestnuts chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped scallions
  • 2-4 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
  • Himalayan salt to taste

Directions:

  1. combine all ingredients together
  2. form 6 patties and place on a skillet over medium heat
  3. cook on one side for ~5 minutes and then flip and cook for an additional ~3 minutes
  4. serve on a bun or over a bed of greens!

Harvest Chicken Salad

I’m going to remake this chicken salad in the near future to take a prettier food pic. I just couldn’t wait any longer to share my recipe with you guys!

Easter seems like forever ago, but my sis and I held an amazing healthy brunch featuring this harvest chicken salad over a bed of greens. We had a pretty extensive menu with light, paleoish options that the whole family loved. I plan on posting the full brunch menu and recipes later this week so stay tuned!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • About ½ cup mayo (we did half regular, half light)
  • 3 celery stalks cut in 1/4 inch dice
  • ¼ cup chopped chives
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

  1. Poach chicken according to THESE instructions (I just used water and a variety of spices)
  2. Place chicken in food processor and process until shredded but still chunky
  3. Dump the shredded chicken into a bowl and mix in mayo, chopped celery, chives, cranberries, and walnuts
  4. Serve in a sandwich or over a bed of greens
