Coconut Lemon Custard Chicken


Do you like coconut and lemon but don’t want to make a dessert dish? This recipe is inspired by Paleo Parents Organ Meat Pie recipe and Civilized Caveman Lemon Bars recipe.

Coconut Lemon Custard Chicken
Ingredients:
2 lbs ground chicken (or any meat of your choice)- I manually minced the chicken breast meat that I got
3 stalks of green onions
2 lemons
3-4 large eggs
1″ knob of ginger
2 shallots
1/2 garlic bulb
2 tsp curry powder
2-3 Tbsp Red Boat Fish Sauce
1 tsp cumin powder
2-3 tsp coriander powder
1-2 tsp black pepper powder
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup – 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions:
For the chicken:
1. Separate the green and white part of the green onions. Mince the white part-set aside. Slice the green part lengthwise (see picture above)
2. Puree garlic, shallots and ginger in your food processor (I used Magic Bullet)
3. Season the ground meat with coriander powder, black pepper, curry powder, coconut oil, fish sauce, minced green onion (white part), 1 egg white (set the yolk aside)

4. Grease an oven proof baking dish with 1 Tbsp coconut oil and spread the mince meat evenly

5. Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes at 350°F

For the custard:
1. While the chicken is cooking in the oven, beat the eggs (including the reserved egg yolk from earlier) in high speed with a hand mixer until the mixture looks pale yellow

2. Lower the mixer speed and add in the 1/4 cup coconut milk and 1/4 cup lemon juice little by little (reserve the rest of the lemon juice for other use). Mix until everything incorporates

3. Lastly, add in the shredded coconut and the green onions (the green part)

4. By this time, the chicken should be cooked already. Take it out from the oven then pour the egg mixture on top

5. Return it to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes in 350°F

6. Change the setting to broil for another 5-10 minutes

7. Remove from the oven and let it cool a bit before slicing it

Who said sour and savory can’t get along? Believe it or not, by the end of the meal, I only had 1/4 of this left!!

Lazy Omelet with Tomatoes

A super easy dish that you can always make when you are in a pinch. Feel free to experiment with different herbs/spices but eggs and tomatoes are mandatory (hence the title) šŸ˜‰

Braised Omelet with Tomatoes
Ingredients:
6 eggs
6 tomatoes
1/4 cabbage – shredded
Chopped onions
Handful of lemon basil or your favorite herbs
Salt and pepper

Directions:
1. Beat 6 eggs and fry it on the pan with 1 Tbsp of oil on medium heat to make an omelet. If you’re feeling lazy like me, don’t want to wash extra bowl and fork from beating the eggs, just crack all the eggs on the pan and break the yolks with your spatula

See, it still turned out as a perfect omelet šŸ˜€

2. Cut the omelet into small pieces using your wooden spatula on the pan (so no need to wash your cutting board and knife) and set aside.

3. Heat another 1 Tbsp of oil in medium high heat, saute the chopped onions, shredded cabbage and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper accordingly.

4. When all the vegetables have wilted, mix in the chopped omelet and lemon basil herbs

5. Mix everything until combined and dinner is ready!

Egg Loaf Frittata


Frittata is another Paleo friendly recipe that’s been floating among cave bloggers on the blogsphere. There are VARIOUS WAYS to make it and almost no need recipe for it. The most common way to make frittata is using a cast iron skillet, which you cook the omelet then pop it into your oven to fully cook the whole thing.

To simplify the process (also because I don’t have a cast iron skillet nor I’m interested to get one..that thing is so darn heavy!), I just bake the entire thing in my counter top convection oven using my 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.

Egg Loaf Frittata
Ingredients:
6-7 eggs
1-2 Tbsp full fat Greek yogurt
Cooked ground beef or any minced meat of your choice
2 stalks of green onion, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped onions
Any of your favorite seasonings (I used Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute)

Directions:
1. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs until the yolk and white mixed evenly
2. Pour in the rest of the filling and season accordingly.
3. Grease a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan with avocado oil
4. Pour in the egg mixture

5. Bake in the oven with 350Ā°F for 40-50 minutes or until the inside is cooked (use toothpick to check the middle part)
6. Remove the pan from the oven and let cool

The egg loaf might shrink a bit after it cools down but worry not, it’ll still be yummy. Slice and store individual cut in an air tight container and you have a protein ready to go in your pantry! Super easy nutritious snack with very minimal effort. Feel free to experiment with different fillings/toppings.

Catching Up

I’ve been starting to pay more attention to my post workout meal and still getting used to it. Usually I don’t really feel hungry right after the workout so it was kinda weird to eat the sweet potatoes while I wasn’t starving. (It’s recommended to eat post workout meal within 30 minutes after exercise to get the most out of it).

Today’s lunch was not quite different from yesterday

Ate this at work for my breakfast. (Full fat Fage Greek yogurt with strawberries)

I also packed more goodies aside so I can assure myself won’t be starving in between meals.

Yep, I inhaled those 3 mini tangerines right after my lunch then proceeded with the mac nuts. Good thing I didn’t finish the whole container because I was super stuffed! Those nuts are very filling! I ended up not eating the strawberries and ate it when I got back at home before dinner.

Obviously, the chicken dish that I prepared last night turned out ok, though it was a bit too watery probably because I juiced the whole lemon instead of 1/2.

My dinner was super light. K made some tomato with bok choy soup using the homemade chicken broth I made the day before. So just soup, some veggies and a bit of Almond Butter Beef pieces.

And I made a super simple meal for tomorrow’s meal: Scramble Egg with Green Beans and Sausage

Phew, at least I’m not as food deprived as before. Good thing is my brother is currently in his Spring Break so he made his own Minced Pork dish (not primal/paleo obviously) so I don’t need to worry not having enough food for him to eat.

Anyway, time to get ready to bed. Nite all!
