Dominique’s Anti Inflammatory Chicken

Now I know what you are thinking, is chicken really anti inflammatory? The answer is no. But if you eat good local organic chicken like I do you aren’t likely to get any harmful effects from it. That’s not the case for everyone I know. I am not planning on cutting out meat at all but I will be supplementing our diet with lots of fruits and veggies, gluten free, paleo, and vegan recipes. My smoothie from this morning was vegan and my egg dish was vegetarian and gluten free (Both were “paleo”). I still had a piece of whole grain organic bread as well to get extra fiber. 

As I begin to eat more of an anti inflammatory diet I’m sure it will become more obvious what foods trigger pain in my body. Not all of these recipes will be right for everyone but so far I think they are great! I hope you enjoy my take on anti inflammatory chicken. 

Ingredients:

4 boneless skinless organic hormone free chicken breasts
3 cloves garlic minced
1 tbs ground ginger or 3 tbs fresh ginger
~1 tbs olive oil
And ~2-4 limes worth of juice. 

Pound chicken until 1/2 inch thick combine garlic, ginger, oil and juice in a bag to create your marinade. Add chicken to the bag and marinate for ~20 minutes. 

Remove chicken from bag and broil in the oven until juices run clear. About 10 minutes in my oven. Then I turn them over and wait for the other side to brown up a little. 


I decided to make carrots with extra garlic and onions as well as a whole grain rice mix. Ginger, garlic and turmeric are the staples of my anti inflammatory diet. 

For the carrots I put some olive oil in the pan, then I added about three tablespoons of garlic and the other half an onion from this morning. Grill the onion and garlic until the onion is tender and a few garlic pieces start to brown slightly. Then add the carrots and a little dash of ginger turmeric tea if you have it (although water works just fine too.) Cover and steam until tender. 

And of course rice is easy! Just remember, rinse the rice and for every cup of rice you use two cups of water. Double the water to rice. 

Here it is cook cook cooking away…

Looking Good!
