Ingredients

  • 1 package (400g/ 14.1oz) chicken thighs (skinned, boneless)
  • 2 heads small (200g/ 7.1oz) lettuce
  • ½ medium (50g/ 1.8oz) red onion
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup (60ml/ 2floz) heavy whipping cream (or coconut milk)
  • 2 tbsp ghee or butter
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme (or 1/2 tsp dried thyme)
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano (or 1/2 tsp dried oregano)
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Peel, halve and finely chop the onion, mash the garlic and chop the herbs(if you are using fresh herbs).
  • Dice the chicken thighs, mix with garlic, herbs, paprika, cayenne and black pepper and season with salt. Squeeze in the lime juice. Note: I prefer using chicken thighs to breast filets. They are a lot juicier and tender!
  • Heat a large skillet, add ghee or butter and cook the onion over medium heat until it becomes soft and golden.
  • Add the herbed chicken pieces and cook for about 10 minutes or until done.
  • Keep on medium heat, add the cream and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes while stirring frequently. When done, set aside.
  • Wash the lettuce(I used Little Gem lettuce) and place in a salad spinner or drain using a paper towel. Spoon the meat mixture on top of each leaf and enjoy! 🙂
