In a previous post, I mentioned one of my FAVORITE recipes, Hummus Chicken, and gave you a “to-go” version. Today, I’d like to spruce it up again, and give it a bit more Flavor. You see, I recently received a 5 mil bottle Jade Lemon Therapeutic Essential Oil from Young Living. Eager to try it, I set it to work by adding 2 drops to my hummus chicken. Oh. So. Good! The smell was fantastically beautiful and the flavor was delicious! Since Essential Oils should not be heated very high (or they lose their property) I added it to the hummus, then smothered that over the already cooked chicken. It only had to warm for a minute or two before it was ready to serve.
Then to top it off, a nice serving of Quinoa garnished the side, alongside a very colorful and nutrient rich salad. This meal was very scrumptious, super filing, easy to make and energy boosting, and just plain pretty!
Some Fun Facts about Jade Lemon Essential Oil:
– It is distilled from the Jade Lemon grown in Southeast China
– This lemon never turns yellow, but stays green throughout it’s maturity- so it lives up to it’s name!
– It is High in D-limonene which energizes and uplifts alongside of relaxes emotions
– It can be used in a variety of ways such as cooking, cleaning, face washes and as a dietary supplement. (Don’t you just love the variety of uses these oil contain? ** Side thought: With this many uses, it certainly saves money on buying some many “products” for your home!**)
