What is a Clean Eating diet?

Basically, it is eating from scratch, or as close to nature as possible. This would include organic foods whenever possible, healthy fats, and choosing whole grains instead of processed or refined foods.

It's a healthy way to eat and surprisingly easy to maintain and is a way of life more than a diet. Plus, once you eat clean you realize how you were missing a lot of flavor in your life!

My hope is that you will soon learn that healthy recipes taste great, can save you a lot of money, and help you feel so much better in the long run.

What can you eat when eating clean?

  • Fresh fruit - All fresh fruit is clean. Canned, frozen, dried, and fruit juice are all ok too. Just make sure it doesn't have any added sugars or other ingredients.
  • Vegetables - Any fresh fruit and frozen or canned vegetables without added ingredients.
  • Protein - Single-ingredient meats, eggs, nuts, seafood, legumes
  • Whole Grains - Unprocessed (not white) grains, such as whole wheat, brown rice, quinoa *, oats, or popcorn.
  • Dairy - Any dairy is fine as long as it doesn't have unclean ingredients

Description

This is one of the very best Clean Eating recipes from My Natural Family. It doesn't take long to get it started cooking and it comes out moist and incredibly tender.

Ingredients

Scale

  • ¼ cup Unmodified Potato Starch * (or Tapioca Starch or Corn Starch if you don't eat Paleo)
  • 1 Tbsp Real Salt *
  • 1 tsp Freshly * Ground Pepper
  • 8 Chicken thighs (bone-in, skin removed)
  • 3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (divided)
  • 1 Yellow Onion (Sliced thinly)
  • ¾ cup Sliced Sun-dried Tomatoes (not packed in oil)*
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning (oregano, thyme, parsley)
  • large pinch Red Pepper Flakes
  • 13.5 oz can Coconut Milk *
  • 1 cup Chicken Stock (or Broth)
  • Basil (shredded, to top)

Instructions

  1. Mix together the potato or tapioca starch, salt, and pepper in a medium-sized bowl. Toss the chicken thighs in the mixture until fully coated.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  3. Heat 2 T. of the Olive Oil in a large oven-proof frying pan or ceramic coated dutch oven. Add the chicken, four pieces at a time, and brown on each side. When the chicken is all browned, remove it and set it aside.
  4. Add the remaining 1 T. of oil to the pan and heat to medium/high. Add the sliced onion and saute for 2 minutes. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, Italian Seasoning, and red pepper and saute for another 30 seconds.
  5. Add the coconut milk and chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  6. Add the chicken back into the sauce, scooping the onions and tomatoes over the top of the chicken. Try to fit the chicken in a single layer, if possible.
  7. Cover pan with a lid (make sure it is oven safe) and place it in the oven. Cook for 45 minutes at 400 degrees. After 45 minutes, reduce the heat to 300 and cook for another 20 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven and top with shredded basil just before serving.
