I know “pickled chicken” sounds weird, but trust me when I say that these Pickled Chicken Sandwiches will knock your socks off. Served up on a lettuce wrap with all your favorite chicken sandwich toppings (or even just some pickles and a mayo substitute while you’re on the autoimmune protocol), they make for a fun and satisfying meal reminiscent of the fast-food chicken sandwiches you might have indulged in in the past. If you want a meal with slightly fewer dishes to clean up afterward, or just don’t like breaded chicken, skip the breading and grill the meat instead.
Make your own non-toxic cosmetics!
I may make my living as a food blogger, but journey toward a more health-conscious lifestyle actually began with making my own cosmetics while I was still in high school–many years before I started “clean eating”. Desperate to get a handle on my sensitive skin and nose, I was also hoping for cheaper, more eco-friendly alternatives to store-bought products. If you’re in the same boat, making your own cosmetics and toiletries is easier than you might think! My e-book A Clean Face will give you the tools you need to get started for just $9.99.
- Lay the chicken breasts in a shallow, lidded baking dish and add the water, vinegar, salt, garlic, dill, and pepper. Refrigerate for 24 hours.
- Combine the tapioca, salt, and garlic powder in an airtight tupperware or large ziplock bag. Add the chicken and shake well to coat.
- Fill a pan with 1" of coconut oil and fry the chicken over medium-high heat for 10-15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, turning once halfway through.
- Pat dry with paper towels. Serve in lettuce wraps with pickles, mayo, and other toppings of your choice.
