Baked Chicken with Roasted Broccoli and Sweet Potatoes

  • Servings: 4 servings
  • Time: 45 minutes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, that have been pounded to even
    thickness
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (I prefer smoked paprika)

Heat oven to 40 degrees F. Place the chicken breasts in a single layer in a large
baking dish. Brush on both sides (turning once) evenly with the olive oil.
In a separate small bowl, whisk the salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika until
combined. Then sprinkle the mixture evenly over the chicken on both sides.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.
If you use a cooking thermometer to measure the temperature thickest part of the
breast, it should be between 160-170 degrees F. (FDA recommends 170 degrees F)

Once the chicken is cooked, remove the pan from the oven and loosely cover the pan
with aluminum foil. Let the chicken rest for at least 5-10 minutes. Then serve
immediately or pack away for prepped meals.

Spread the sweet potatoes in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, add broccoli and bake until tender enough to pierce with a fork and the edges are browning, about 15 minutes. Turn once halfway through the baking process and add red pepper flakes, if using. After baking, squeeze lemon liberally on florets.

Crockpot Turkey Meatballs with Spaghetti Squash

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

  • 1 lb. raw 93% lean ground turkey
  • ½ tsp. sea salt (or Himalayan salt), divided use
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup whole grain panko or oatmeal
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 (28-oz.) can whole tomatoes, crushed
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano leaves

Combine turkey, ¼ tsp. salt, pepper, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic, parsley, and cheese in a large bowl; mix gently with clean hands. Roll mixture into eighteen 1½-inch meatballs. Set aside. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of meatballs; cook, turning occasionally, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until meatballs are browned on each side. Place browned meatballs in a 3-quart slow cooker. Repeat with the remaining meatballs. Set aside.

Add onion to same skillet; cook, over medium-high heat, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Top meatballs with cooked onion, tomatoes, oregano, and remaining ¼ tsp. salt; cook, covered, on low temperature for 5 to 6 hours, stirring once or twice.

SPAGHETTI SQUASH

  • 1 Spaghetti Squash
  • Olive oil or Coconut oil Cooking Spray
  • 2 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. black Pepper
  • 1 tsp. minced onion or onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt

Prepare spaghetti squash by baking it in the oven at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until squash is soft. This allows the skin to soften, which makes it easier to cut in half lengthwise! Split the spaghetti squash into two even halves. Be careful, it’s hot! Remove the seeds first, ( you could clean them up and cook them just like you would pumpkin seeds!)

Using a fork, loosen the ’spaghetti’ strands from the inside of the squash, scraping them into a bowl or plate. Spray a non-stick skillet with olive oil or coconut oil cooking spray. Add spaghetti squash “noodles” to the pan, along with the garlic, pepper, onion, and salt. Let squash cook for about 2-3 minutes over medium high heat, stirring constantly until the squash has become more tender and the excess moisture has cooked out of the squash.
