Detox your Diet: Chicken Tikka with Baby Spinach Recipe

by Dr. Sharleen Hawco ND March 05, 2009

This is a very easy recipe for 2, using ginger and turmeric.

Ingredients:
- 8 ounces chicken breast: boneless and skinless
- 1/2 cup plain, low-fat yogurt
- 2 tsp chopped garlic
- 2 tsp ginger root, chopped
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp fresh mint or coriander, chopped (optional)
- 2 cups chunk pineapple or mandarin orange slices (if canned in juice, then drain)
- 2 cups organic baby spinach leaves

Instructions:
1. Marinade:
- Mix yogurt well with garlic, ginger, spices and fresh mint
- Cut chicken into fairly large chunks, about 5-6 pieces of each chicken breast
- Soak the chicken pieces in yogurt mixture, turning over to make sure all parts are coated
- Marinade, and let chicken sit in the marinade in the fridge for 1-2 hours

2. Preheat the broiler
- Meanwhile, place the chicken pieces in a lightly-oiled, shallow baking pan
- Best if pan is at least 10 inches from the broiler and broil for 5 minutes
- Turn chicken pieces over, add the pineapple or mandarin orange slices and broil for another 5 minutes

3. Wilt the spinach: Put spinach leaves in a saucepan with 1/4 cup of boiling water. Cover tightly and steam for 3 minutes. Drain. Serve this colorful chicken and fruit on a bed of spinach.

I'm really happy to have found a few sources for safe Halloween face paint. It quite literally makes me cringe knowing that the vast majority of face paints used on children contain harmful heavy metals that are readily absorbed into their skin.
