Sometimes you just need a quick and easy meal to throw together, and keeping it exciting while following a dietary protocol can be tough. This dish is the whole package – quick and easy, while also bringing excitement back to chicken! And best of all, it’s packed with selenium and iron to help your thyroid function properly.

For an extra kick, try going a little heavier on the black pepper for some yummy flavor, while avoiding the inflammatory nightshade spices.
