Spicy Almond Chicken
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Yeast-Free, Corn-Free, Peanut-Free, Vinegar-Free
Warning - Does contain Soy
A great meal to put in a slow cooker (crock pot) before going to work, and dinner is ready when you are home! Alternatively, it can be cooked in a wok.
2 lbs boneless and skinless, cubed chicken
1 cup of salsa (see a previous blog to make your own)
1/4 cup almond butter
3 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp gluten-free soy sauce
2 tsps ginger root
1/2 cup slivered almonds
Mix all sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Place the boneless chicken in a large plastic bag, or a medium sized bowl. Pour the sauce ingredients over the chicken and marinade at least 1 hour or overnight (in the refrigerator).
Cook in a slow cooker for 4-5 hours on high, or 6-8 hours on low. If you cook the chicken in a wok, cook for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken pieces are no longer pink in the middle.
Serve over rice or rice noodles with fresh cauliflower or broccoli. Just before serving, sprinkle the slivered almonds on top.
