Satay Chicken Bowl With Almond Sauce

Satay chicken bowl

The simplicity of a one bowl meal can be a real comfort after a busy day. This chicken satay dish is a vibrant bowl that incorporates crisp greens, fresh vegetables, slivered almonds, marinated chicken, and nutty quinoa. All these delicious ingredients are tossed in a sweet and spicy almond sauce.

All of these ingredients are acceptable on the Candida diet. It’s a tasty way to incorporate antifungal foods like coconut milk, garlic, turmeric, ginger, and olive oil. And of course you can substitute in any other acceptable ingredients that you wish.

When you make this recipe, you can save time by making the quinoa and almond sauce ahead. Also consider marinating your chicken the night before, or in the morning before you leave for work. With a little prep work in the evening, dinner will ready in less than 30 minutes. Relax and unwind with a meal that only requires a bowl and a fork!

    Thank you so much for this Candida diet plan. Last March 2016, I was diagnosed with the Candidus and I started researching and found your program. I follow the program and I would like to say that my Candida is well under control if not gone, and I have dropped 45 pounds. And I don’t miss the sugar or sweets.
