Walnut Sauce Over Grilled Chicken

Walnut sauce chicken

Here’s a great idea to liven up your grilled chicken. This walnut sauce contains cilantro and garlic, and is seasoned with turmeric, cumin, and fenugreek. Lots of really tasty Central Asian flavors!

You can add this sauce to some grilled chicken breasts for a delicious, flavorful meal. When you’re grilling or frying meat, try to use lower temperatures wherever possible. This reduces the amount of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which have been linked to a number of degenerative diseases and also place undue stress on the digestive and immune systems.

From this recipe, you can see the importance of a well-stocked pantry when you’re on the Candida diet. Meal planning and preparation is much simpler when you have ingredients like chicken broth, walnuts, apple cider vinegar, and of course all the herbs and spices ready to pick up and use.
