How to Make Organic Coconut Cilantro Citrus Chicken (Gluten & Grain Free)

And let me tell you, its ridiculously delicious and simple to make.  I am about to share with you one of my signature recipes that I prepare and make available for friends and family that enjoy cooking.  It’s a La Chica Organica Exclusive that I know you will enjoy.

You will need:

2 pounds Organic Pastured Chicken Thighs and Breasts

Pure Sea Salt to taste or 1 teaspoon

6 ounces Organic Unrefined Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

2 medium size sweet onions chopped

4 ounces of fresh cilantro (whole, with leaves on stem) or about 30 stems

Juice from 1 sour orange or 2 limes

Large baking dish

cilantro

Ok so now that you have all your supplies, start by cleaning your chicken and be sure to remove the fatty skin.  Once cleaned set aside.  An option is to blend 2 cups of distilled water with a small piece of ginger and add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar then let the chicken sit soaking for about 10 minutes, then rinse.

In a blender; mix the coconut oil, salt, sour orange and cilantro and blendy blendy in your blender until its nice and smooth. Pour the blend into a glass jar.

Place your chicken in the baking pan and stick each piece with fork then pour about 5 table spoons of the mixture on your chicken and add in the chopped sweet onions.  Mix and distribute oil and onions equally.  Cover and place in the oven at 300 degrees for 2 hours then uncover and bake for another 30 minutes or until desired texture is achieved.

Enjoy with sprouted brown jasmine rice or sprouted quinoa. For a grain free option serve over a salad or on top of a baked sweet potato. Add chopped organic cilantro, guacamole and homemade salsa on top for an extra yummy dish.

Don’t forget to refrigerate your coconut oil mixture.  Don’t worry, when you see it turn hard, like butter; this is normal.  When ready to use just scoop out the spoons needed.

Please post your comments once you try this and let us all know how it came out.

Remember to live life as a gift and give that gift away everyday!

Love LCO

  2. Hey Chica, thanks for all you do! I love reading your blogs and now that I have purchased some of your products I have to say YOU are onto something!

    The lip balm tastes =), looks, and feels awesome! It goes on so nice and shiny that I don’t mind skipping on the color. The best part is that my kid’s can safely use it too…especially on those cold days when their lips are prone to chapping.

    The facial wash is also a winner! As I am applying it, I can see my face clean on those areas where it was being applied…I kid you not the dirt came off immediately…not to mention the nice scent and again just being confident that it contains good natural ingredients (no harsh chemicals, etc.) Since what we put on our skin is absorbed into our body, I want to make better choices not only on what I eat, but also what I apply to my skin…just ask La Chica Organica!

    • Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I am glad that I was able to help you with what you were looking for.
      Everything I teach women to make and those things that I make myself are all with one thought in mind: If I cant use them on my baby and on all the family then its not good for anyone.

      Being a health advocate is something I take very seriously, whether that is helping a mom regain her breast milk through teaching or making a cup of Immunity Rescue tea for a friend. All is the same to me. My motto is that we should live our life everyday as a gift and then give that gift away everyday. My passion for health is my gift, and that gift I give away to you and others every single day!
      Glad to serve you!
      Blessings
      LCO
