GAPS Muenster Chicken

  • two uncooked chicken breasts
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/3 cup kefir
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • one or two crowns broccoli
  • 2 slices GAPS sandwich bread of your choice (I reserve crusts and heels for this)
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 cup bacon fat, butter, or coconut oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 heaping tsp powdered gelatin
  • extra salt to taste (if broth is unsalted)
  • 8 oz muenster cheese (or any GAPS legal cheese of your choosing), sliced thinly or shredded

Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces.  Mix the egg yolk and kefir well and add garlic powder.  Pour the kefir mixture over the chicken and let marinate for several hours or overnight.

Meanwhile, prepare the breading for the chicken pieces by pulsing the bread, coconut flour, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and chili powder in a food processor until the mixture is about the consistency of sand.  Set aside.

Cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces and place in the bottom of an 8″ x 11″ pan.  Mix the gelatin (and salt, if desired) into the broth and pour over the broccoli.  Set aside.

In a large skillet, melt the fat for frying on medium heat.  Meanwhile, coat the chicken pieces with the bread crumb mixture.  When the pan is hot, add the chicken pieces and cook until golden brown.

Arrange the cooked chicken pieces over the broccoli and top with muenster cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is browned and broccoli is cooked (about 30 minutes).

Serves 2 or 3, depending on how hungry you are!

  • leftovers (just me)

This is the third week in a row we’ve had Paleo pizza on the menu – maybe this week I’ll finally getting around to making it!  :P  We’ve had more leftovers than I anticipated which is fab but it does throw off the schedule a bit.  If I get to the store mid-week for groceries it will be Game On, pizza.

We still have a case of apples needing to be eaten so apple crisp will be a  breakfast staple for a while to come.  We tried an apple skillet pancake recently that just didn’t float our boats so the hunt is on for something else apple-y that we can do instead of apple crisp.

I’m hoping to get two main meals into the freezer this week.  I still have waffles; bacon, egg, and cheese muffins; and apple crisp in the freezer for about 5 breakfasts’ worth but no quick lunches or dinners.  Got to get that done!

If you are new to this blog, you’ll notice that we have several non-GAPS starches on our menu.  After more than a year on GAPS, we began introducing those foods and have tolerated them well.  Buckwheat and amaranth are our newest additions.  This week we will also eat rice, red potatoes, and maybe a small amount of tapioca flour.  You should be able to substitute other GAPS foods for those starches on this menu if you are still strict GAPS as the bulk of our daily meals are still very GAPS-friendly.

  • leftovers (just me)

I took a day off today!  I had forgotten what that was like. :)  Etsy has definitely moved from hobbyish part-time job to full-time work.  Add two other part-time jobs to that plus homeschooling and there’s just not much time for catching your breath.  I’m currently caught up on custom orders so we’ll see if the rest of January slows down and I finally get my break.  I’ve been asked to set up a table at our women’s conference at church next month and they have assured me it is a no-stress show…so I agreed.  That means sewing some spring stuff to set out *IF* Etsy finally slows down!  That also means even less time for cooking.  There are lots of repeats on my menus lately – some due to the fact that I never got around to cooking that particular meal and some due to the fact that I’ve got to go with what is easy right now.  We’re ready for some new foods, though…so I do plan to try at least one new thing every week or two so we don’t go bonkers.  The paleo pizza is our new thing this week!

We did make the porridge once and it was pretty good.  My daughter LOVED it and asked if I could make it every day.  Um…no, dear…but I will make it again this week.  :)  My son was not as crazy about it.  He said he wished it had flax seed in it (weird – that boy has never much liked flax seed!) so I’m not sure if it was a textural issue or what.  I think I’ll skip the ginger root next time and try ginger powder, though.  I was not good at finding the ginger pieces after I cooked it!
