Cilantro Lime Chicken 

My friend gave me this recipe and I was a little skeptical because I’ve never marinated chicken in lime juice before, but I I iowas blown away by all the faioolivours in this dish! New family fav!

What you’ll need:

Boneless/ skinless chicken thighs-10 small or 6 large. (I used 10 small)

Juice of two limes

1/2 cup olive oil 

4 cloves of garlic, minces

1 tbs cumin

1 cup of fresh cilantro leaves/no stems 

Dash of red pepper flakes (I used about 1 tsp, add more if you want more heat)

Sprinkle of salt (approximately 1 tsp)


⚪️ Combine all the ingredients in a shallow casserole dish and mix well, add the chicken thighs and stir so they are all coated in the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and leave refrigerated for a min of 30 min, max 3 hours. You may add more olive oil if you need to beef up the marinade so all the chicken is good and coated. 


⚪️⚪️ Heat a large frying pan with olive oil, approximately 2 tbs of olive oil. Once the pan is nice and hot, place the chicken one by one into the pan, don’t overcrowd. Cook for approximately 5-10 minutes, then flip. 


Timing depends on the thickness of your thighs. Once both sides are golden brown, cut a thick part of a thigh to see if it’s cooked through. 

Once cooked, serve with your favourite rice and grilled veggies. I drizzle the drippings from the pan onto the rice before serving. 

Also amazing served on your favourite salad or wrap sandwich. 

Enjoy! 

Roasted Sweet Potato Hash

Perfect side for any meal !

I make a few  batches of this most weeks for my family. It’s a perfect match to eggs, chicken, salad… it’s great with everything really. The sweet potato provides a healthy carb to fuel your toughest workouts. You can use any fat for the recipe, whether oil, butter or ghee – I prefer bacon fat because it’s non-dairy, provides a good flavor, and is available once the bacon is cooked.


What you’ll need:

1 sweet potato

3 celery stalks 

2 small potatoes

1 small onion

1/2 package of  bacon (cook ahead of time)

1 tbs bacon fat

Season to taste: salt, pepper, sage, paprika- *Use the spices you love

⚪️ Cook your bacon ahead of time.

⚪️ ⚪️Cut all vegetables and bacon to bite sized pieces.

Place all your vegetables and cooked bacon into a large bowl,  drizzle with bacon fat and your spices. Mix together until rhe vegetables are evenly covered. Place the veggies on parchment-paper lined roasting pan and roast at 400F for approximately 30-40 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Stir the veggies every ten minutes.

Enjoy!
