Sometimes cooking with cannabis can be complicated, from infusing your own butter or oils, to using the whole plant. That’s why we love using products like Verdita Dragon infused syrup by Craft Elixirs. The dosing is already done for you, so you have total control of your experience. This recipe makes it outrageously easy.
Unlike trying to infuse butter or oil to cook with and not really knowing what the dose is afterward, these syrups are measured out for you already, making recipes a piece of cake. The syrup we are using for this recipe comes in a 100mg bottle that can be easily dosed to your preference.
For this simple recipe, we used a jalapeno and cannabis infused syrup to add the kick to our kickin’ chicken.
4-6 thin cut chicken breasts
1/2 C extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
red pepper flakes
Verdita Dragon infused syrup by Craft Elixirs, dosed to your liking
Step 1: If the chicken breasts are not already sliced thin, place them on a cutting board and slice them horizontally through the middle with a sharp knife. Salt and pepper both sides of each piece of chicken.
Step 2: Add oil, lime juice, pepper flakes, and 40-100mg dose of Verdita Dragon cannabis syrup, depending on your desired dose per piece of chicken, to a plastic resealable bag. Shake to mix.
Step 3: Put seasoned chicken into the bag with the oil mixture and shake to coat chicken. Let sit for at least one hour, or for better infusion and flavor, overnight in the refrigerator.
Step 4: Grill chicken over medium heat, basting occasionally with the remaining sauce, and serve hot.
Serving suggestions: Serve with a slice of lime to juice over the top. Top with jalapeno slices or a spicy chimichurri to give it even more kick. Or top with a pineapple mango chutney to cut the heat.
