Braised chicken with carrots, potatoes, and thyme
Gluten-Free, Mediterranean, Diabetes-Friendly, Lean & Clean, Soy-Free
2 Servings, 400 Calories/Serving
Comfort food at its finest, this gluten-free chicken supper tastes like it’s been cooking all day but comes together in only about half an hour and in just one pot.
In your bag
- 1 organic red onion
- ½ pound organic gold or red new potatoes
- 3 or 4 organic carrots (about 9 ounces total)
- Chicken options:
- 2 to 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 10 ounces total)
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)
- ½ teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
- 2 teaspoons Cup4Cup gluten-free flour
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 4 sprigs organic fresh thyme
- 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh flat-leaf parsley
If you’re tempted to peel the potatoes, remember what you’ll be taking away: along with flavor, many nutrients are contained in that thin outer layer. Potato skins hold more fiber and iron than the flesh does, not to mention protein, potassium, and magnesium. So consider putting down the peeler and scrubbing the spuds instead. You’ll save time, too.
