Congratulations!! I hope you love it!

And now onto the chicken dinner.... You may or may not have seen me mention that I'll be posting a recipe everyday this week. I've been sitting on a few and figured I'd dump 'em all on you at once, kinda.  Now, I realize that I need to stop using my iphone as a camera, and pick up the camera I wasted a gazillion dollars on. I say wasted because it's been months and it's gotten no use. I even bought a book to learn how to use it and I haven't touched the book either. Whoops. Well, however I photograph the food, I hope you enjoy and try these recipes!



Grilled Lemon Garlic Chicken Boobs

This recipe happens to be 100% Paleo friendly. Which is 100% perfect in my world. Let's get to it!

What you will need:
bone in, skin on, chicken breast
lemon
shallot
garlic. (if you're like me, lots of garlic.)
salt/pepper
grass fed butter (Kerrygold is the brand we use)
green beans
sliced almonds
spinach
a grill (an indoor grill is fine too, that's what we used)
some pots and pans and stuff like that


What you will do:

  • Rinse the chicken under cold water and pat dry, set aside. 
  • Slice the lemon, chop up the garlic and shallot and stuff everything under the skin of the boobies. 
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper all over dem titties and place them on the grill with the skin side UP at first. All that nonsense underneath with the bones will take awhile to cook, about 10-15 minutes. Since we used the indoor grill, it was more like 15-20. 
  • Flip the boobs to skin side down and cook for about 7 mins if you're using a flame grill. With our indoor grill, we did about 12 mins and then shoved it in the oven for a bit and used a meat thermometer to make sure it was done. AKA, we did this shit the hard way.
    [chicken should never ever be pink! always check that it is white, juice runs clear, temp is not under 165F degrees.]



Sides time (while chicken is doing it's thang):

  • For the green beans, cut ends off and rinse them. (Clearly, as you can see in the picture, the boyfriend did not cut the ends.) 
  • Throw beans and 3-4 cups of water in a pot, bring to boil and boil for 6 minutes, strain when tender.
  • In a small saucepan, melt grassfed butter and then add sliced almonds. Cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Dump the beans and butter together and mix. 


Spinach.....

  • Chop up a shit ton of garlic (or whatever amount you like, but a shit ton works best cuz garlic is delicious.)
  • Melt butter in a pan, add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. This makes the butter all garlicky and amazeballs.
  • Add spinach, salt/pepper, mix it all up and cook until wilted. Spinach cooks wicked fast so don't get impatient and hangry, you'll be eating in minutes! 


At the end of all this, you have a yummy dish of noms.



Oh yea, and I totally gave my blog a makeover. All by myself. Props bitch!
