chicken breasts with julienned carrots in coconut milk, paprika and sage sauce, and a video to boost my morale

This fabulous recipe was developed by lovely Joelle of https://sulfitefreecooking.wordpress.com who does an amazing job blogging both in French and English; her primary blog is https://macuisinesanssulfites.com (for those of you, Beautiful People who read French). I have made this dish in my Instant Pot as one of our holiday meals, and it was beyond delicious! Try it and enjoy!

sulfite-free cooking

Hello dear neighbors! This definitely qualifies as a “classic” in my house. I often make it because it doesn’t involve a lot of work and I have yet to find someone who doesn’t like it. In this recipe, the cooking juices released by the chicken breasts mix with coconut milk and spices (mustard, sage and paprika) as they bake. I add shredded carrot to the meat just before placing the dish in the oven, which saves me from having to prepare (and keep an eye on) a separate side dish of vegetables.

Ingredients (serves 2):

– 2 tspcoconut oil

– 2 chicken breasts, preferably free range

– ½ tsporganic paprika (2 x ¼ tsp)

– 2 tspdry sage(2 x 1 tsp), OR 1 TBSP fresh sage (2 x ½ TBSP)

– 1 tsp organic mustard

        I forgot to ask you: what mustard did you use? I am planning our next stay in New England and would love not to have to carry too many French ingredients in my backpack…

      2. I used Burman’s stone ground spicy brown mustard, and it worked beautifully. We buy it at Aldi. I am not sure they have Aldi in New England, though, but you should be able to find something similar that firs all your dietetic requirements.
        P.S. Before you carry any edibles into this country, I would suggest you check the new rules. I hope this virus madness ends soon!

        In the past, I have successfully brought chestnut flour as well as a mustard jar, all in plain view in my backpack. I figured the worst would be that they might confiscate my goods, so no big deal. I do know that meats and seeds are totally forbidden though. Not planning to break the law!
        Have a good day, Dolly!

      4. What has been in the past is not a part of the “new normal,” unfortunately, and the rules seem to change every day.
