1 cup coconut cream
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon freshly grated turmeric root
1 teaspoon Ginger Root
juice from 1 Lemon
½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 clove Garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 pounds raw chicken breast, cubed
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon freshly grated ground turmeric
1 teaspoon Curry Powder
½ teaspoon cumin
2 cups chicken broth
2 baby kale, chopped
juice from ½ Lemon
2 tablespoons raw pepitas
Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl, except for the chicken. Mix well to combine. Add the chicken cubes and mix well. Cover and place in the fridge for 2 hours, or up to overnight.
Preheat the oven to 360 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil. Place the chicken cubes on the pan so that they aren't touching. Bake for 20 minutes. Without removing the chicken from the oven switch to the high broil for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove once golden.
In a medium sauce pan place the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the turmeric, curry and cumin. Heat until fragrant. Add the quinoa and stir frequently until it starts to make popping sounds.
Add the chicken broth and bring to a low simmer. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook undisturbed for 10 minutes. Remove the lid, stir in the kale, and place the lid back, cooking for another undisturbed 10 minutes. Turn the heat off and let the quinoa sit for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and transfer to a bowl.
Fluff the quinoa and mix in the lemon juice. Garnish with pepitas and serve with the chicken. Enjoy!
