Lebanese Chicken Recipe for Yeast Free Diet, Candida, Gluten free, Dairy Free Lifestyles

by

As a personal chef, Chef Gloria B, specializing in mouth watering, home cooked meals, for any medical condition, I have become familiar cooking for those in need.   Regardless of  food restrictions this recipe is delicious even if you don’t need a yeast free diet.  The key is always using fresh herbs, fresh squeezed lemon juice and marinating the chicken overnight.

¼ lemon juice
1 heaping tablespoon fresh chopped oregano
1 heaping tablespoon fresh chopped basil
1 heaping tablespoon fresh chopped thyme
1 heaping tablespoon fresh chopped flat parsley
6 cloves fresh chopped garlic
¼  cup olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ tablespoon dry mustard (mix with ½ tablespoon water, let sit for 10 minutes before using)
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast (organic free range is the best)

Serves 3-4

Mix lemon juice, oregano, thyme, parsley, basil, garlic, sea salt and dry mustard together in small bowl. Gradually add the olive oil and whisk all the ingredients together.  Cut chicken into serving pieces that are even thickness. Put chicken breasts in zip lock bag and add the rest of the ingredients.  Let sit in refrigerator overnight or longer.

Preheat grill.  Take the chicken out of zip lock bag.  Pour the marinade into a small pot, bring to boil and then simmer for 10 minutes.  Grill chicken for approximately 5 minutes a side. (Depending on thickness of breast may take 10 minutes a side) Cut into strips about 2”inches wide.  Pour marinade over chicken and serve.

 

BBQ Season & Cancer Prevention

Grilled Salmon with Dry Mustard, Olive oil and Lemon juiceSalmon

I read a very informative article http://www.care2.com/greenliving/10-ways-to-cancer-proof-your-barbecue.html about grilling and cancer prevention.  As many people know the charred food is linked to the creation of carcinogens, which can increase your risk of cancer.  However, this article talks about ways to grill and prevent these risks and still enjoy a delicious meal from the grill.

I hadn’t realized until I read the article that I automatically have been using the right type of recipes on the grill!  I thought I would share one with my readers that can be varied to your own tastes.

Depending on the quantity of fish or chicken I am marinating would have an influence on the amount of olive oil and lemon juice.  Chicken I marinade in a ziplock bag overnight.  Fish I marinade about an hour to two hours maximum.

Salmon with lemon-olive oil and dry mustard

This recipe has a good kick from the dry mustard.

1-2 pounds salmon

1/2 tablespoon dry mustard, mixed with 2 tablespoons water (allow to sit for 10 minutes before mixing with other ingredients)

3 tablespoons lemon juice (freshly squeezed is the best)

3 tablespoons olive oil (not extra virgin, EVO burns at a high flame and gives off a toxic gas)

1 tablespoon Mirin

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

sea salt to taste

fresh pepper to taste

One or two hours before grilling prepare marinade.  In a small bowl add lemon juice, mirin, garlic, ginger, cilantro, using a wire whisk,  mix ingredients.  Gradually add olive oil while whisking.  Cut salmon into serving pieces (4) and put into non-reactive dish 9×12 (Pyrex or ceramic work well).  Preheat grill on high flame until temperature reaches 600 degrees.  Turn heat to medium low and place fish skin side up on grill.  Cook for 4 minutes (depends on thickness of fish), turn fish to skin side down and grill for another 4-5 minutes (take care not to overcook fish).  Remove and turn off grill.  Serve with vegetables.
