P2 hCG Recipes | Asian Ginger Chicken w/ Grapefruit & Cucumber Zoodles | LSP + SP + AP
Add the chicken to a mixing bowl with the garlic, thumb-sized grated ginger, spices, tbsp cilantro, 2 tbsp grapefruit juice, stevia and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Mix to combine, cover and refrigerate for 30 mins. For AP, add coconut milk to marinade.
While the chicken marinates, prepare the salad. Add the cucumber to a large bowl with remaining grapefruit juice and fresh ginger, lemon juice, mint, cilantro and salt. Toss to combine and sprinkle with grapefruit cubes. Set aside.
Remove the chicken pieces from marinade. Add to a frying pan with 1 tbsp broth over medium heat. Cover with a lid and pan-fry strips until golden and cooked through, about 12-14 mins. Add a little broth as needed throughout cooking to prevent sticking and stir regularly. Cook until piping hot. For AP, fry in coconut oil.
Serve pan-fried chicken strips on top of noodle salad. Or serve with miracle noodles. For AP, serve with green onions.
Batch cooking tip or Alternate Cooking Method Option:
Ideally made and served fresh. The chicken could be cooked in batches and added to a simple salad.
*If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can make cucumber noodles with a vegetable peeler, or use miracle noodles instead.
Macros listed are for SP version.
**This is based on the Trim Healthy Mama stevia brand that I personally use and linked to in the recipe which is quite concentrated. Stevia potency really varies from brand to brand so you may need to adjust the level of stevia to more or less depending on which one you use.
