Meal-Prep Chicken Kheema for the week!
I love Kheema Dosa, but I must say that I can’t ever get my family to eat dosa as often as I would like. So, I had to come up with another solution which is how this star was born.
My go-to version of this tasty Indian chicken kheema pizza is not only gluten-free, but guilt free in many ways! I use a cauliflower crust and layer on the tasty toppings before baking it to a crisp perfection.
I buy a cauliflower pizza crust from the freezer section to make life a bit easier. Honestly, I have tried multiple different brands and they all seem to have lived up to my expectations of a crispy crust thus far.
- Kheema (recipe below)
- Fresh chopped cilantro
- Finely diced onion
- Finely diced chili peppers
- Shredded Mozarella Cheese
Indian Chicken Kheema Recipe
A versatile clean eating recipe which can me made to last a few days! Perfect for those flaor craving meal prep days.
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 1 tbsp ginger
- 1 tbsp garlic
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 2 tbsp coriander powder
- 1-2 tbsp chicken masala-optional (this measurement depends on your spice level preference)
- 1 large finely chopped onion
- 1 large finely chopped tomato
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- red chili powder
- chopped cilantro
Heat pan on medium heat and add oil. Once hot add finely chopped onions and saute until golden brown.
Once the onions have slightly browned add the tomatoes, garlic, ginger, chicken masala, tomato paste, salt, coriander powder, some chopped cilantro (optional), and turmeric.
Allow the mixture to cook for about 3-5 minutes. At this point you can use a hand blender and puree the mixture if you would like. Then add the chicken. SIDE NOTE: I like to mix the ground chicken to remove the "stringed" meat look before cooking.
Using a spatula continue to mash and mix the chicken with the mixture. TIP: flatten/squeeze the meat at the bottom of the pan while mixing (or use a ground meat chopper). This will prevent the meat from bulking into large clumps.
Continue to mix frequently for an additional 7-10 minutes on medium heat.
Once all of the natural water has evaporated cook for a few additional minutes.
Garnish with the rest of the cilantro and serve.
Happy Eating Folks! <3
NOTES: You can refrigerate left overs for a few days.
