Ingredients

Sun Dried Tomato Sauce Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 300 gram jar or bottle of sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper (or more to taste)

Chicken Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 chicken breasts, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 2 cans sliced black olives, drained (total of 450mL)
  • 300 grams fresh or frozen spinach

Instructions

  1. Make the sauce by putting all the sauce ingredients into your Vitamix or other high speed blender and blending until smooth.

  2. Place a large pan on the stove on medium heat. Add the coconut oil and once it melts add the chicken pieces. Cook the chicken until it's fully cooked, stirring frequently so that all the sides cook evenly.

  3. Add the sauce, olives and spinach to the pan with the chicken. Stir everything well to combine.

  4. Heat the mixture until all the spinach is thawed (if you are using frozen spinach) and everything is warm. This should take about 5 minutes.

Recipe Notes

  1. Store this recipe in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
  2. If you don't like olives simply leave them out.
