Gruhnkohl and Roasted Chicken [Paleo]
During the week I always try and prepare my lunch the night before. Sometimes this doesn’t really work out. Case in point, I completely forgot to prepare anything Sunday night (to be fair I was still in Ommmm mode from my CrossYoga class – all I wanted to do was sleep) and ended up throwing things in a bag before running to catch the S Bahn Monday morning. So my breakfast and lunch consisted of the following:
Let’s get to the focus of this post, my lunch for tomorrow. I decided to make something fairly easy and went for gruhnkohl (a.k.a. cooked kale) and roasted chicken. You will need:
– Chicken breasts
– Jar of gruhnkohl
– Spices (Whatever your little heart desires)
– Two onions
I should have used fresh kale and cooked it myself, however, I bought this jar of gruhnkohl before going Paleo again and it seemed like such a thing to waste. The ingredients were gruhnkohl, water and salt. So I poured the contents into a strainer and ran cold water over the gruhkohl for about 2 minutes. Dumped it in a pan with water that was about 1/2 an inch high and set my stove on medium heat.
Just add those to your pot of gruhnkohl and stir until everything is heated up. I make the gruhnkohl first because its super quick and now the spices can really soak into your gruhnkohl while you make the chicken. Mmmmmmm. For the chicken, I slapped the uncooked chicken breasts onto some wax paper, covered them in spices (parsley, chili powder, garlic powder, and ginger) and stuck them in The Teufel. I had The Teufel set to 5. *See previous posts about the dreaded Teufel.
