Chicken Breast, sautéed onions on rocket















Free range organic chicken breasts x 2

1/2 medium sliced red onion

1-2 cloves garlic

Baby spinach and/or rocket

Salt, pepper and paprika

Olive oil (or coconut oil for a higher smoking point)


Heat pan to medium high heat, add olive oil/coconut oil, add chicken breasts, sear on both sides then add sliced red onions and garlic.  Once onions are wilted, lower  heat to medium low.  Cook chicken breasts for a total of 8 minutes per side or until juices run clear (be careful not to overcook! it makes a big difference to taste).  Serve on a bed of spinach and rocket.

Simple, fast, high protein and tastes great.  Enjoy!

Top Tip: If you cant find organic greenery, soak spinach in a bowl for 10 mins with a capful of cider vinegar to help clean off pesticide residue,  then dry in salad spinner.
