14-Day REBOOT – Day One Dinner
The first meal that kicks off your 14-Day REBOOT is simple and quick. But I’m not sure you’re prepared for how delicious this is! This chicken marinade is basic, but oh so tasty. When grilled, the outside gets toasty grill marks and the inside stays tender and juicy.
Go ahead and grill extra chicken to store for quicker “throw together” meals when time is tight. You’ll be so happy you did!
Grilling Tip: The chicken will take 10-15 minutes on each side depending on how thick it is. The best way to ensure even cooking is to pound your chicken before you put it into the marinade with a cast iron skillet until the thick part is flattened a little bit. Give it 3 good whacks. That should do it.
Things to remember when preparing meals that support your new healthy lifestyle:
- Choose free-range poultry that is organic and naturally raised – meaning, chickens that roam free around the farm. Free as a bird, you might say! They should consume a diet that is natural to a chicken, which is not store bought. Chickens should have to fend for themselves and eat whatever worms, bugs, local berries and seeds they can find. Never growth hormones or injections. No substitute grain or feed to “fatten them up”. Natural means how they lived 100 years ago.
- The produce should be grown in a similar fashion. Organic means how they were grown 100 years ago, too. No pesticides, other than what was totally natural such as garlic or cayenne pepper.
