Tips

Add a dollop of guacamole and some olives on the top of the dish. If desired, you can add a sprinkle of cheese, but otherwise this is a dairy free meal. I like a dollop of Natural CoYo on top instead of sour cream


Directions

*Mix the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, oregano, paprika, cumin seed, Celtic sea salt, and black pepper into a small bowl to make a Taco seasoning mix. Set this aside to marinade the cooked meat later.

*Heat 12 inch stainless steel skillet until droplets of water ball up and dance on the skillet surface.

*Place unseasoned WHOLE chicken thighs into the skillet to brown. Do not oil the pan.

*Brown chicken thighs for EXACTLY 5 minutes on each side. You do not need a non stick surface as long as the skillet surface is hot enough and you cook them EXACTLY 5 minutes on each side. At 5 minutes, the surface of the skillet will neatly separate from the meat.

*Remove the chicken thighs from the skillet and slice the meat into thin strips.

*Set sliced chicken aside in a bowl and add all seasonings.

*Allow the cooked, sliced chicken to marinate while you prepare the vegetables.

*Deglaze the skillet with cold bone broth. Once all the goodness is dissolved in the broth, pour it into a jar and set aside to use later in the recipe.

*Wipe the skillet clean and heat it up again until droplets of water dance on the skillet surface.

*Chop a whole onion roughly.

*Cut a head of cabbage in half and slice one half the head of cabbage into thin strips. Cut the strips into halves or fourths.

*Place the chopped onion into the hot skillet WITH NO OIL OR FAT OF ANY KIND. Dry sauté’ the onion. Use a large spoon to keep the onion bits moving around in the skillet until soft and browned on the edges.

*Turn down the heat and add the thinly sliced cabbage to the skillet with the onion. Dry sauté the cabbage and onion until soft and slightly browned.

*Add the marinated meat back into the onion/cabbage mixture.

*Pour the bone broth deglaze solution into the marinade bowl and allow it to soak up the marinade and chicken residue.

*Pour the deglaze back into the skillet, over the meat, onions and cabbage mixture. Stir to mix evenly.

*Bring the skillet to a low simmer and add ˝ jar of Frontera Guacamole Mix.

*Simmer until the liquid cooks down but is not quite dry.

*Add 1 package of Frozen Woodstock Broccoli Florets

*Add 1 package of Frozen Woodstock Tri-Color Peppers

Heat everything through and plate the meal in a pasta bowl.
