It’s Not Butter Chicken
No it’s not – but it is still DE-FREAKING-LICIOUS!
Not Butter Chicken is one of the weight-loss patient inspired recipes submitted for the new cookbook (yet to be named). I’ve tweaked it a little and added in the details for how I prepare our cauliflower rice. Because cauliflower rice is so damned delicious that it has to be served with as many dishes as possible!
- 450 grams Skinless Boneless Chicken - diced I use thigh
- 1 Onion - diced
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
- 1 Yellow Capsicum - diced
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/8 tsp ground chilli powder
- 4 tbsp Tomato Paste
- 150 mls Coconut Milk or cream if you prefer
- 4 cups freshBaby Spinach - chopped
- 1 juice of a fresh lemon
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Melt the coconut oil in a large frying pan. Add the onions and garlic and cook until the onion is soft. Add the chicken.
When the chicken is cooked through, lower the heat and add the yellow capsicum. Cook for 2-3 minutes
Stir through the spices, tomato paste and coconut milk. Lower the heat and simmer for approximately 10 minutes until the vegetables are soft.
Add spinach, lemon juice and the salt and pepper. Simmer for another 5 minutes - until the spinach has wilted. Serve with Cauliflower Rice.
I normally use around 1/4 head of cauliflower for 2-3 people.but its so damn delicious that if you use more, I won't judge! Roughly chop the cauliflower and throw it in a pan with 1 tbsp of coconut oil and 1 tbsp of coconut aminos. Give it a quick fry, around 3-4 minutes and then chuck it in the food processor and whiz it to the consistency of rice. Done!
