Southwestern Spiced Organic Chicken and Chickpea and Hearts of Palm Salad
Southwestern Spiced Organic Chicken Ingredients
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine chopped pecans, pumpkin seeds, chili powder and annatto powder in food processor. Pulse to a coarse meal. Transfer to a flat plate. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Coat one side of chicken with nut-spice mixture. Transfer chicken, crust-side up, to an oiled baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, lightly drizzle crust with olive oil. Place in oven. Bake until done.
Chickpea and Hearts of Palm Salad Ingredients
Combine chickpeas and water in large pot. Bring to boil. Do not salt water. Reduce to simmer. Cover and cook 45 minutes or until chickpeas are tender; drain. Cool to room temperature. Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl (preferably wood, but any will do). Add cooled chickpeas. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss thoroughly.
Divide chickpea and hearts of palm salad in center of six large, shallow bowls. Top with chicken. Garnish with lemon verbena sprig. Drizzle with avocado oil.
