Ginger Garlic Chicken

I'm back!!! Thank you for the comments and emails congratulating hubby and I on the arrival of the new baby. We are doing great and really starting to get the hang of three little ones! 

I am going to do my very best to post a few recipes a week (if not more) but please don't get mad if I forget! I do have a 17 day old!!! Hubby and I are back to eating Paleo strictly. New baby doesn't like dairy and our 2 year olds belly cant handle dairy. I will write more on that later! 

I made this awesome crockpot chicken last week and must share it. It can be done in the oven but since I had my hands busy I put it in the crockpot around noon and just let it cook for the afternoon! I also thinking a chicken fryer would be awesome but all I had were breasts!

 The Ingredients:
chicken (I used 3 boneless breast)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 TBSP ground ginger (fresh would have been great but didn't have any)
2 TBSP Olive Oil
1/4 cup Coconut Aminos (Braggs Aminos or soy sauce)
Handful of cilantro (chopped)
Pepper
Garlic Powder

The Directions:
Place chicken in baggie and add all the other ingredients. Mix around and cover chicken. If you are doing a fryer chicken, you will need more of the liquid ingredients. Let the chicken marinate for an hour or more. Add chicken to crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours. If baking chicken cook at 425 degrees and time will vary. Breasts cook for 20-25 minutes or a fryer for 45 minutes-1 hour. I am cooking the chicken in the oven this week and will let you know for sure!

We served our garlic ginger chicken with saute broccoli slaw.

  1. Garlic and ginger, such a perfect flavor combination for chicken...oh and cilantro. Great recipe, I bet the house smelt divine.

    I'm hosting a whole food wednesday at beyondthepeel.net. I'd love it if you had time to swing by and share. I can't imagine the huge time constraint of having a new baby, but if you have time, I'd be delighted.

    Congrats and have a blessed week.
