Anti-Inflammatory Crohn’s Chicken Recipe Instructions

Part 1: Cooking the Crohn’s chicken recipe

  1. First, flatten the chicken breast either by lightly hammering with a tenderizing mallet (recommended), or by butterflying with a sharp knife. 

  2. Heat a large skillet (medium heat) with the olive oil in it

  3. Season the chicken on both sides and place in the hot skillet. Cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes each side. Keep the heat low enough so that the chicken cooks all the way through and gets some nice color on the outside. Make sure the chicken is cooked all the way through by piercing it with a knife tip and pulling it open a bit to see if there is any pink.

  2. Cook until the cauliflower starts to brown on the bottom, turn over and cook the other side. Sprinkle some more Italian seasoning. Remove from the pan when ready.
