Covid-19 and What's for Dinner

Covid-19 and What's for Dinner

OK, so I am just like everyone else and totally bored.  And TP has not been trading as well as I would like during these times.  SO I am officially doing some backtesting and continuing to adjust.  April will see some changes to how we trade based on each pair.

In the meantime....
Here's what's for dinner. LOL  Maybe I should feature a Cooking Keto for a Crowd Series.

CopyCat Barbacoa Chicken with Cilantro Cali Rice
12 servings

Seasoning Mix
10 minced garlic cloves
1 tsp Cumin
4 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Pepper
1 TBS coriander
1 ½ TSP Cinnamon
1 tsp Salt (high quality, I used pink)
3 tsp Chili Powder
3 limes juiced or 4-6 TBS Lime Juice

12 5 oz. boneless skinless chicken breast
2 cans fire-roasted tomatoes or 1 jar fire-roasted salsa

Cilantro Cali-Rice
6 cups riced Cauliflower (approx.. 2 heads)
1 tsp Salt (high quality, I used pink)
1 bunch Cilantro finely chopped
3 limes juiced or 4-6 Tbs Lime Juice

1.       Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.  Because I had such a large amount I baked the chicken instead of using my Foodi.
2.      Combine the Seasoning Mix in a bowl and set aside.  If too dry, use additional lime juice until you have a paste.
3.      Arrange Chicken Breast flat in a baking dish.  This is a double recipe for my family of 8.  I use two separate casserole dishes to fit the chicken without crowding.
4.      Rub the seasoning paste over all the chicken breast.
5.      Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven.
6.      Top with fire-roasted tomatoes (salsa) and return to oven.  Bake for 10 additional minutes. 
7.      Remove leaves and stems and pulse Cauliflower in Ninja until a rice-like texture is achieved.
8.      Place skillet on medium heat.  Spray bottom of a large skillet. (I used Avocado Oil) (can sauté in the Foodi)
9.      Add Cauliflower to skillet and stir frequently.  Cauliflower has its own moisture.  Continue stirring as moisture releases 5-7 minutes.  Add salt, cilantro, and lime juice.  Sauté 2-3 additional minutes until Cauliflower reaches desired tenderness.
10.   Served on a bed of spinach for additional nutrition value.  (optional)

I have not traded the $20 account and soon I will be able to share why.  For now, there is a check I am chasing.  Expect more once the bag is secure.
