Serves: 4
  • 4 chicken breasts, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • handful fresh basil, chopped
  • around 16 grape tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  1. Heat your skillet to medium high heat and add olive oil so the bottom of the pan is coated.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and garlic powder.
  3. Add chicken to the skillet once it's hot. Cook uncovered for 8-10 minutes, flipping once. Chicken should be browned on both sides.
  4. Slice the larger grape tomatoes in half. You can leave the rest whole.
  5. Once chicken is sufficiently browned add your basil, grape tomatoes, ghee, and lime juice to the skillet. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for an additional 5 minutes. This will finish cooking the chicken and cause your tomatoes to soften.
  6. Serve over zoodles or roasted potatoes. Or just with a side of veggies! Top with additional fresh basil and Avocado Dressing & Dip to make it extra special.
