A clean version of a takeout favorite that’s ready in 30 minutes? Look no further than Alex Snodgrass’s black pepper chicken from her new cookbook, The Defined Dish: Healthy and Wholesome Weeknight Recipes.
“You know those days when you look in your fridge to take inventory and think, What in the world will I do with all this celery?” the Defined Dish food blogger writes. “Well, that happens pretty often on this end. Luckily, when it does, I can turn to this dish, which is one of my favorite ways to get some food use out of that celery.”
Not only is it a chance for a crisper drawer cleanout but it’s also gluten-, grain- and dairy-free, paleo and Whole30-approved.
“You may recognize this dish from a popular Chinese drive-through chain,” she continues. “This is my much cleaner rendition that’s naturally low-carb yet completely satisfying. And the decadent and bold black pepper sauce puts it over the top.”
Take that, takeout.
