The six year old helped me with this one. Celery sticks, moz cheese sticks, and gala apples complemented the meal.
white pepper (an avoid, so go easy)
The name of this combo is garlic and tex mex spices. Cut defrosted chicken pieces into bite size pieces. Preheat a big frying pan without oil, and then add olive oil at the last minute (one tablespoon). Using white rice flour in a ziploc bag, coat the chicken pieces and place them into the pan. Allow 2 to 3 minutes for the bottom of the chicken to become brown, and add more oil or ghee as necessary. Spice the chicken while in the pan, and give it one minute for the spices to brown. Quickly, using a big metal spoon, stir the chicken and flip the pieces over and over again. (A bit like stir frying, I suppose.) Be careful not to let the spice burn, but do make sure that all sides of the chicken pieces get cooked.
Pour the chicken into a big bowl, as this will help keep it warm. Serve with simple raw veggies of any kind along with a sweet fruit, and wa lah! It is a very satisfying meal.
Meanwhile, my two year old is still suffering with either the goat cheese he consumed yesterday or some sneaky gluten which grabbed him. I knew something was up as he was a real crankpot this morning. Sure enough, the diaper told the story. I will give him some aloe vera juice and hope that will help. Truthfully, I am not certain if that is the perfect treatment for him, but I guess time will tell.
Good eats everyone!
