Don't mind the corn in this picture, a friend cooked for me, and he tried really hard to make it paleo proof.. I guess Mark Sisson is right that most people don't get that corn is not a veggie :P Apart from that minor detail, this meal is absolutely delicious!
- 2 chicken breasts
- 8 cloves garlic
- 3 spoonfulls olive oil
- thyme, oregano and basil
- 2 tomatoes
- 20 almonds (halved)
- 6 leaves lettuce
- half a cucumber
- 1 red bell pepper
Marinade the chickenbreasts with the top ingredients, leave them for about 15 minutes while you prepare the veggies. Make little blocks out of the cucumber and pepper, cut the tomatoes in quarters. Prepare the almonds if you haven't done so already.
When the chicken has soaked up the marinade properly, put it in a frying pan. Have it on high heat until both sides are nice and brown. Add the almonds and bake them for a minute. Then turn down the heat and cover the pan. After 5 minutes (make sure the chicken is done on the inside before you continue) add the tomatoes. Leave that for another 5 minutes so the tomatoes soften up nicely.
Arrange the lettuce leaves on a plate, then scoop the chicken and tomatoes on top. Put your cucumber/pepper mixture on the side, and voila! It's really recommended to take a little bit of everything on your fork and then eat it, the flavors go together perfectly.
Mix it up;
For a good variation take your marinated chicken and fry it with different colour peppers. Then serve it with lettuce and olives. Yummy.
