Yassa Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Yassa which belongs to the Poultry recipe category.
- 6 pounds (2.7 kg) chicken, cut up
- 3 large onions, thinly sliced
- 6 cloves garlic, crushed
- cup (120 ml) lemon juice
- 1 teaspoons salt teaspoon cayenne, or more to taste
- cup (60 ml) oil
- 8 cups (960 g) Cauliflower Rice
In a slow cooker, combine the onions, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne.
Add the chicken and toss so that all the chicken comes in contact with the seasonings.
Cover your slow cooker and refrigerate overnight.
(It's a good idea to stir this a few times if you think of it, though I don't expect you to get up in the middle of the night to do it!) Using tongs, remove the chicken from the marinade.
Pat it dry with paper towels and set it aside.
In a big, heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
Place the chicken skin side down and cook it until the skin is browned.
(You'll need to do this in batches, unless your skillet is a lot bigger than mine!) Don't bother browning the other side of the chicken.
Transfer the chicken back to the slow cooker with the marinade.
Cover the slow cooker, set it to low, and let it cook for 5 to 6 hours.
Remove the chicken from the slow cooker with tongs.
Put the chicken on a platter, cover it with foil, and put it in a warm place.
Ladle the onions and liquid out of the slow cooker into the skillet and turn the heat to high.
Boil this hard, stirring often, until most of the liquid has evaporated.
(You want the volume reduced by more than half.
) Serve the chicken, onions, and sauce over the Cauliflower Rice.
