zavor noir skillet
1 Skillet plus induction cooktop


  • tablespoons avocado oil divided
  • pounds chicken thighs boneless & skinless
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1/3 cup bone broth or chicken broth
  • 7 ounces sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 8 garlic cloves minced
  • 15 ounces coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 4 cups spinach lightly packed
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • kosher salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  • Cut chicken thighs into bite-size chunks (about 1 inch) and place them in a large bowl. Add half of the avocado oil, cornstarch, salt, and pepper. Mix to evenly coat and set aside.
  • Heat up the oil in a large skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the chicken and cook each side until golden brown but not completely cooked through (about 4-5 minutes). Do not crowd the pan, you may need to cook in batches.
  • Transfer to a bowl or plate with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Add the diced onion to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until soft. Add the minced garlic and 1 tablespoon of oil from the sun dried tomatoes (the remaining oil from the sun dried tomatoes can be drained). Cook for 1 minute, stirring often.
  • Add broth to the pan, scraping from the bottom and stirring frequently. Cook until broth has reduced down by at least half.
  • Add sun-dried tomatoes to the skillet. Fry for 2-3 minutes until well combined, stirring occasionally.
  • Add coconut milk and nutritional yeast to the skillet. Once the coconut milk has reached a boil, turn the heat down to medium-low. Add spinach to the pan and stir until slightly wilted, about 1 minute.
  • Add chicken back into the pan and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Stir frequently for another 7-10 minutes, allowing the chicken to cook all the way through.
  • Season with additional salt and pepper if necessary.
