Chicken & Broccoli Divine
A family favorite I used to make all the time, but stopped when I no longer ate rice. So, I tried it with Farro and everyone loved it! This makes for a very healthy recipe the whole family can enjoy!
Ingredients: P3 Stabilized
1 cup Farro
2 1/2-3 cups water
2 Tbsp. organic butter
2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 Tbsp. coconut flour
1/2 c. coconut milk
1 c. onion, chopped
1 c. celery, chopped
1 c. peas
3 whole large chicken breast, cooked and diced
1 bunch broccoli, slightly steamed OR 1 10 oz. pkg. frozen broccoli, cooked
1/2 c. white cheese, grated (I used White Cheddar)
In a medium saucepan, combine Farro, celery, water and 1 teaspoon salt. Heat to boiling. Cover and simmer for about 8 minutes, or until Farro is tender and water is absorbed.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan or skillet. Saute chicken for about 1 minute; stir in coconut flour, pepper, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Continue to cook, stirring constantly. Stir in coconut milk and 1 1/3 cups water. Continue cooking and stirring until sauce thickens and gently boils for about 1 minute. Place Farrow mixture into a 9 x 13 pan. Add chicken with sauce mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and bake at 375° for 20 minutes.

It’s like a rice. I bought mine at Costco.
My family loves Chicken and Rice. Can’t wait till I can try this. Right now My Daughter and I are in our 2nd week of P2. 10 pounds down for us both. Total loss so far 60 pounds each. Woo Hoo!! Love this diet!!
