  • 1 lb Chicken Thighs (boneless, skinless)
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt (divided)
  • 1 tsp Avocado Oil
  • 5 cups Broccoli (cut into florets)
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 1/4 cups Coconut Milk (full fat, from the can)
  • 1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tbsp Tapioca Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 3/4 cup Bone Broth


  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF (204ºC).
  • Season the chicken thighs with half of the sea salt. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the avocado oil. Working in batches, add the chicken and cook for 6 to 7 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove the chicken and set aside to cool. Once cool, shred the chicken with two forks.
  • In the same skillet, using the fat from the chicken, add the broccoli and yellow onion and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until the broccoli is bright green. Remove from the pan.
  • Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium-low heat, add the coconut milk, nutritional yeast, tapioca flour, garlic powder and remaining sea salt. Whisk to combine. Bring to a simmer, then turn off the heat and add the chicken broth.
  • Add the chicken thighs to an oven-safe dish and top with the broccoli and onions. Add the coconut milk sauce on top and give it a stir. Place it in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove, let it cool slightly and then serve. Enjoy!
