Honey Dijon Chicken (Dairy Free)

This dish is a popular dinner request at our house. Everyone in the family gobbles it up within a few minutes. The chicken is great on its own as well as on top of salad greens or over brown rice or quinoa. I make this dish often as my husband likes to eat the leftovers for lunch.

1-1/2 lb chicken breast tenders or chicken thighs, boneless and skinless (organic, if possible)
4 cups arugula or spinach (it sounds like a lot, but won’t be after cooking it!)
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. ghee
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. raw honey
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard (certified gluten-free)
1/2 tsp. Herbamare
pepper to taste
Melt ghee in a saucepan over medium heat. Place onions in pan and cook until translucent. Add in chicken and remaining ingredients except greens. Stir regularly and flip chicken after 8 minutes. Cook for another 8 minutes. The last 3 minutes add in the greens and stir all ingredients together thoroughly.
Serve hot.
Makes 4 servings.

    mmm, drool.  I love honey dijon chicken.  My hubs is not a fan though so I haven’t made it in years!  Think I might just have to make this again soon just because . . . . 🙂
