Recipe from The 10-Day Belly Slimdown: Lose Your Belly, Heal Your Gut, Enjoy a Lighter, Younger You by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced, or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • dash of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Celtic or pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or coconut oil
  • 1 cup chicken bone broth
  • 4-6 cups cauliflower "rice"
  • 2 limes, 1 juiced and 1 cut into wedges for serving
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

1. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, garlic, cayenne, cinnamon, salt, and black pepper. Rub the chicken with this mixture, coating all sides.

 

2. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat.

 

3. Add the chicken, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for about 4 minutes per side, turning once. Monitor the heat, as the spices will burn if it's too high. Add 1/2 cup of the broth, cover, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for about 15 minutes.

 

4. Remove the chicken from the pan, add the cauliflower "rice" and any remaining spice mix, and stir in the remaining 1/2 cup broth. Place the chicken on top of the cauliflower. Cover and simmer on medium-low heat for about 15 minutes, until the chicken is fully cooked.

 

5. When done, drizzle the lime juice over the chicken and top with the cilantro. Serve with the lime wedges.
