Even if you’re busy, Chef Nick Massie shows you how quick and easy it is to cook up a batch of protein.

The ingredients: 3.5 lb. of chicken thighs, fresh garlic, tamari, sesame oil, honey, sesame seeds, fresh ginger and fresh cilantro. Together, they get tossed in a big bowl, where Massie mixes it all by hand. He lets the thighs sit for about 30 minutes, and then he sears them in a pan.

“The chicken thigh is a little tricky because there’s all kinds of contours,” explains Massie, who runs

After he sears his first batch, he places the thighs in a smaller bowl and covers them in plastic wrap to steam.

“Combine this—good, tasty protein—with some greens, a salad, some fruit, you name it,” he says. “We’ll package them up and have ’em ready for snackin’ and meals throughout the week.”

Mass.... Alergic to soy. Thyroid condition. What do you suggest as a substitute for the tamaari?


replied to comment from Todd Butler

You can use coconut aminos, cheap balsamic vinegar, fish sauce, or any combination of the three.
Let me know what you do and how it turns out.

Great - I have chicken thighs in the fridge right now too! Nick is my favorite CF "chef" that has been showcased amongst all the cooking videos. He is professional and efficient, the recipes are great, ingredients are easy, and he is so easy on the eyes.

Looks great...can't wait to try it!! FYI - looks like garlic is left of the recipe. Assume it's about the same quantity as ginger.

Nick Massie - Yeah! You're my favorite CF chef, and I missed you.
Mainsite needs to feature you more often because us women need some eye
candy occasionally too - and you're it! Oh yeah, and thanks for the great recipe I'll be trying it soon. Your meatza recipe is still a hit in our home.

Put this together last night using chicken breast and coconut aminos with a tbsp of fish sauce vice soy and coconut oil vice sesame oil. Fantastic. Looking forward to more posts from Chef Massie. And really appreciate it when you do some teaching of the culinary arts along with the recipe. The mess en pret and slicing peppers come instantly to mind as examples. How about some knife skills?
