Ingredients

• 2 c. of white vinegar
• 1 c. of olive oil

• ⅓ c. chicken broth
• 1 tbsp. ground thyme
• 2 tbsp. butter or coconut oil
• 1 garlic clove, minced
• Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

• Take all the ingredients except the chicken and mix in a bowl with a whisk or fork and get them combined really well.
• Put chicken in the bowl.
• You can let it marinate for as little a 15 min or up to all day.
• Turn on grill to MED HIGH.
• When grill is hot, place chicken on grill and cook for 3 min.
• Flip chicken every 3 min till done.
• Every time you flip the chicken put it back in the marinade.
• (No worries. You will not get sick because you dip it back in the mixture).

• DO NOT OVER COOK IT.

Stuffing:

• Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
• Cover a baking sheet with foil, throw diced sweet potatoes on it, sprinkle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender, then set aside.
• While those cook, pull out a large skillet, place it under medium-high heat and place a tablespoon of butter along your minced garlic clove and your mushrooms and onions in it to begin to cook down. Add a bit of salt and pepper and cook until soft.
• When your mushrooms and onions are done cooking, add your pork sausage to the hot mushroom pan. Use a wooden spoon to break up sausage and cook until almost cooked through.
• Once the sausage is all done, set aside to cool.
• One sausage is cool, beat your eggs, add to your sausage mixture, and add your chicken broth and vinegar, along with your sweet potatoes, pecans, and chopped herbs. Mix well.
