  • 1 lb chicken breasts, sliced in bite size pieces
  • Onion and garlic powder to season the chicken
  • 1 T butter
  • 4 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • ½ C small onion, chopped

  • ½ t sea salt
  • 1 C bib lettuce leaves

  1. In a large skillet, drizzle over medium-high heat the olive oil and sauté the onions for 1 minute. Season the chicken with the onion and garlic powder. Add that to the onions and sauté until partly cooked.
