Garlicky Chicken


1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon coconut oil
Juice of 1 lemon
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 lb. chicken thighs
Himalayan sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 lb. asparagus, ends removed
1 zucchini, sliced into half moons
1 lemon, sliced


1. In a large bowl, combine 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and oregano. Whisk until combined then add chicken thighs and toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes and up to 2 hours.


2. When you’re ready to cook the chicken, preheat oven to 425°. In a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 teaspoon coconut oil. Season both sides of marinated chicken with Himalayan sea salt and pepper, then add chicken skin-side down and pour in the remaining marinade.


3. Sear until the skin becomes golden and crispy, about 10 minutes. Flip chicken and add asparagus, zucchini and lemons to the skillet.


4. Transfer pan to oven and cook until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.


Serving Size = 3 ounces of chicken and 2 cups of vegetables
