Calories 200 kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup wheat-free tamari
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 / 4 cup organic tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp minced onion
  • Lettuce cups – I like romaine or radicchio for color
  • For garnish: chopped scallions & sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken, full breasts, into a crock pot. In a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken. Cook on LOW 3-4 hours. Using 2 forks, shred the chicken right in the crock pot. Let heat through and serve in lettuce cups with chopped scallions and sesame seeds for garnish.

Modifications for:

  1. Elimination Diet – use Coconut Aminos vs wheat free tamari
  2. Anti-Candida Diet – use Coconut Aminos vs wheat free tamari + apple Cider vinegar vs rice wine vinegar
  3. Ketogenic Diet – ok as is, however will want to serve with added fats (avocado, shredded organic cheese)
