They posted one of their delicious recipes (Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread) from The Paleo Kitchen here a few months ago, and I know a lot of people emailed me because they loved the recipe. So, I went and tested one of their recipes for dinner last night. It was one of the really easy ones (because I’m currently limited to the stuff they sell in a Tesco Express – a tiny supermarket in Edinburgh).
I was really impressed by the Paleo buffalo wings I ordered as an appetizer at Corner Table in Houston, and so here’s my own Paleo buffalo wings recipe!
I opted for a baked recipe since they’re easier (just place on a baking tray and dump into the oven!).
I recall eating chicken kiev a lot growing up in England. Of course, it was the prepackaged kind that you stuck into the oven (definitely not Paleo chicken kievs!).
However, it never occurred to me that they were Ukrainian in origin (hence the name “kiev”). Although, according to Wikipedia, the Russians claim they invented it.
As soon as Jeremy tasted these Paleo chicken nuggets, he looked up at me with a mouthful and said, “Wow, everyone is going to love this!”
It’s really easy, delicious, and perfect for kids (young or old!).
I made a baked version of this before (recipe here), but I really think my new Paleo chicken nuggets recipe below (shallow fried in ghee) is even better!
I love making chicken broth in the slow cooker (see my easy slow cooker chicken broth recipe here), and after having some amazing Thai Chicken and Rice with Chicken Soup in Portland, I had to go make a Paleo version to enjoy at home! It’s a simple process – place everything into the slow cooker and leave overnight.
This is something I make all the time (for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), so I thought I would share it with everyone even though it’s not spring.
It’s so simple (3 ingredients) and has a really great clean feel – I love it.
I’m sure most of you already know and love Juli from PaleOMG - she’s freaking hilarious and has the most outrageously delicious recipes. And she was kind enough to let me share this chicken and apple sausage recipe with her readers.
This really makes a fantastic breakfast that you can make in advance and freeze!
Cook An Entire Paleo Meal
It’s often easy to find a bunch of disparate recipes that all look good but totally don’t fit together and would be impossible to cook in one meal.
So, I thought it would be cool to showcase an ENTIRE PALEO MEAL!

I’ve been reading about Dr. Robert C. Baker, the inventor of the chicken nugget and a professor at Cornell University. Even though I had never considered the question of who invented chicken nuggets, my first answer would probably have been McDonald’s, just because it’s hard to think of a professor “inventing” something so commonplace. But I guess, it did have to be a scientist who would come up with reconstituted chicken meat!
Ok, enough about chicken slurry – I just thought those were “interesting” tidbits. This recipe uses whole chicken breasts (although you can also use chicken tenders, which is the meat close to the breast but that has a little white tendon attached to it). I’ve always found it easier to buy chicken breasts (which I keep frozen in my freezer for quick meals) and then to slice the the breasts into strips. And the “breading” for this recipe is really simple – just coconut flour with some spices.
This curry was so amazing I could have kept eating it until my stomach burst – luckily for me this time, I didn’t make enough for that to happen, but I definitely finished off every last drop!
The inspiration for this recipe came from Tyler Florence’s Spicy Chicken Coconut Curry (but I changed up the ingredients and cooking method a bit and made it not spicy so that I could drink every last drop comfortably!).
And what’s surprising about this curry recipe is that it’s really easy to make (unlike real Indian curries, which can take practically a day)!
