  • 4 chicken breasts (cut into bite-sized cubes)
  • 2 medium yellow onions (sliced)
  • 1 red bell pepper (diced)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoon paprika
  • to taste salt and white pepper
  • ½ cup hot water (or same amount of cream, sour cream or coconut cream)


  • In a large sauté pan, over a medium/high heat - sauté the onions until soft and translucent and starting to caramelize.
  • While the onions are cooking, season the chicken with the spice mix and be generous with the salt.
  • When the onions are done, push them to one side and add the chicken and red bell pepper. Be sure to let the chicken sit for a minute or two to give it time to sear.
  • Then stir everything together and once the chicken is almost cooked, add the water (or cream) and allow to heat through for a couple of minutes.
  • Garnish with a bit of fresh parsley (optional) and serve immediately.


Tips and Tricks:

1. You can add sour cream or coconut cream instead of hot water for a creamier end result. 
2. Serve with a side salad, like our Avocado Tomato Cucumber Salad.
