1/4 Cup Cilantro
1 Cup Celery root, diced & blanched
1 Cup Asparagus, blanched
1 Lime, juiced


step #1

Heat up a non-stick pan with grape seed oil and add the cubed chicken, letting it sear evenly. 

step #2

Once the chicken's seared, mix in all your spices, including the garlic, to incorporate all their flavors throughout the dish. 

step #3

When the chicken's almost fully cooked, mix in your blanched and diced celery root. It won't take long to reheat, as you've cooked it in advance.
