You can never have too many chicken recipes, and here’s a really simple one that can be prepared in just a few minutes!

Proteins like chicken, eggs, and nuts are an excellent way to stay full and satisfied while on a low-carb diet like the anti-Candida diet. They are healthy, nutritious and will keep you from getting hunger pangs as you wean yourself off a high-carbohydrate diet.

This is a perfect dish for busy weekday evenings. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, then 45 minutes in the oven and it’s ready to eat. You can pair it with some steamed veggies, or make one of our super-healthy side dishes like cauliflower mash, artichoke salad, or no-sugar coleslaw.

There are several gut-healthy ingredients in this recipe, including natural antifungals like olive oil and oregano leaf.

Chicken is also an excellent source of glutamine, one of the most important amino acids for your body. Glutamine helps to maintain the integrity of your intestinal lining, which prevents foods and microorganisms (like bacteria and yeast) from crossing over into your bloodstream.

Look for organic or free range chicken wherever possible. It costs more, but the chickens are treated much better. Research shows that meat from free range chickens has less fat, more iron and more zinc than meat from factory-raised chickens.

    Great! I added crushed red pepper and tarragon to the spices. Used roasted cauliflower and fennel to the roaster for veg.
