Rosemary Chicken

Fresh rosemary gives this dish a delicious pop of color & flavor so it’s not only delicious, but it’s pretty too. Plus, it’s EASY-PEASY & completely done in about 30 minutes. Who could beat that…a main dish that has flavor & is a time saver.

So many chicken dishes with a yummy pan sauce rely on cornstarch or white flour to thicken it, but this sauce gets thickened naturally & grain free with arrowroot & coconut flour. The time it cooks under the lid, will give you a delicious pan sauce your family will fight over & you will be glad you kept the ingredients clean & simple for the sake of nourishing your body!

I recommend you serve this chicken with cauli-rice {leave out the garam masala & coconut oil from THIS recipe}.
