Health Highlights
Serve with tahini, hummus, pickled turnips, bulgur free tabbouleh, garlic yogurt tomato, and cucumber.


454 gm Chicken breast, boneless, skinless (cut into large; bite-size chunks - organic)
1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil (to marinate)
2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil (to brown chicken)
1 cup White onion (thinly sliced)
2 tsp Oregano, dried
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Allspice, ground
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Coriander, ground
1 tsp Sea Salt


  1. Place the cut up chicken in a ziplock bag, pour in the olive oil, onion and half of the spice mix (save the other half of the spice for the next time you make this recipe). 
  2. Smoosh it all up together so that the chicken is evenly coated in the oil and spices.
  3. At this point, you could freeze it for later cooking, or you could leave it in the fridge to marinate for as long as you have. 
  4. When you're ready to cook it, heat a pan over medium high heat and dump the chicken to the pan in a single layer. Let it sear for a few minutes and then flip over. 
  5. Heat oven to 350°F and line a baking dish with foil. Spray or pour just a little extra oil to crisp the chicken a little during baking.
  6. Add the contents of the pan to the baking dish and cook in oven for 10-15 minutes turning once. Test for doneness.
