Roasted Lemony Quinoa Chicken Arugula Salad
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  2. Melt the ghee in a pan on the stove, add the ground chicken and cook on medium high heat.
  3. Place the thinly sliced lemon slices on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast the lemons until they are slightly browned, 7 to 9 minutes. Can go a little longer if you prefer them more caramelized.
  4. Meanwhile, bring broth and quinoa to a boil in a small saucepan. Follow the directions on your package. Once the quinoa is removed from the heat, let it stand covered for at least 10 minutes so it cools. Fluff with a fork. Can toss it with a little ghee too.
  5. Cut broccoli florets from the stems. Trim peel and thinly slice the stems and chop the florets into bite size pieces.
  6. Finely chop the lemon slices. Combine in a large bowl with vinegar, mustard and the olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Add the chicken, broccoli, quinoa, arugula, nuts and mint to the dressing and toss to combine.
Recipe Notes

This recipe can be made with any of our savory ghee but Heirloom Salt + Pepper and Black Garlic Ghee are perfect to use.

Recipe Notes

*To make homemade chicken broth: Place washed chicken into pot and barely cover with water. Add 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and allow the chicken to soak for 1 hour. Turn on heat and bring to a boil. Once it boils, begin skimming all the white foam off – these are the impurities. Once it’s clean, reduce heat to low-medium and add any amount of onion, carrots, and celery along with bay leaf and any fresh herbs you like. Put lid on pot half-way and allow the whole chicken and all the goodies to cook for about 2-3 hours. Check the chicken after 2 hours to see if its done. The internal temp is 165 F  without the thermometer touching any bones).  Once chicken is done, remove it from the pot and allow to cool slightly. Remove the chicken from the bones.  If you like, you can toss the bones back into the pot for the last hour of cooking.  Cut or shred both white and dark meat for the soup. Save the rest for other meals. After 3 hours, strain the broth to remove all the veggies and herbs – toss them. Allow the broth to cool if you plan on freezing it or you may continue to make the soup at this point. Be careful - it is HOT!

Can also use Black Garlic Ghee, Sriracha Ghee, Turmeric + Black Pepper Ghee and Heirloom Salt + Pepper Ghee in place of Original Ghee.
