Old Fashioned BBQ Chicken with Garlic Tomato Zucchini Noodles and Bok Choy

Advanced & Core Plan

Serves 4

photoThis chicken recipe is not your ‘regular’ BBQ chicken because it does not have the typical tomato/chili based barbecue sauce most associated with BBQ (which is high in sugar).  This is a great recipe my Great Uncle Roy used to make on the grill.  Marinating the chicken makes it juicy and tender and cooking it on indirect heat helps cut down on the harmful carcinogens that can occur with high temperature cooking.

 
Old Fashioned BBQ Chicken
4 organic bone in, skin on chicken breasts
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons poultry seasoning

Place the chicken breasts in a deep dish or bowl.  Mix with marinade ingredients and combine thoroughly.  Marinate at least 30 minutes and up to overnight.  Place on a hot grill but not on direct flame.  Close lid of grill and turn periodically until done (about 25 minutes).  Baste with remaining marinade if desired.

Garlic Tomato Zucchini Noodles

2 large organic zucchini
1-2 garlic cloves
pinch of red pepper flakes (more to taste if you like it spicy)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 tomato, chopped

Using a spiral slicer or mandolin, slice zucchini into strands or ribbons.  Heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil over low heat (do not heat too much), add garlic and cook for a few minutes until the garlic is fragrant.  Add zucchini and tomatoes and cook until just heated.  Do not overcook.

Bok Choy

Simply sautee chopped boo chou in coconut oil.  Add sea salt and a dash of liquid amines or tamari.  Add crushed red pepper flakes if desired.
