AIP Chicken Recipes – Salads

AIP Chicken Recipes #aip - https://paleomagazine.com/aip-chicken-recipes/

Chicken Salad with Grapes, Apple, and Celery

– Paleo Flourish Magazine
AIP Chicken Salad Recipe - grapes apple celery - paleo gluten-free primal autoimmune
Ingredients: chicken breast, coconut oil, grapes, apple, celery, coconut milk, salt.

Chicken salads can be so much better when you add fruit! The grapes give the whole dish a juicy texture and there is a great crunch from the celery too. Adding the lemon juice also stops the apple from going brown, leaving your salad looking fresh and delicious. If you are not keen on celery you can always add shredded carrot instead.

Chicken Avocado Salad with Cilantro and Lime

– Koko Paleo
Ingredients: rotisserie chicken, avocados, green cabbage, green onions, lime juice, fresh cilantro, salt, English cucumber.

Using the cucumber to make ‘cups’ to serve the salad in is a great idea and goes down well at parties. It is also handy if you are making this for kids, as they find them fun and don’t look on it as healthy! If you would rather serve the salad with the cucumber through it, why not try this tip? Using a potato peeler, carefully peel sections of the skin off, leaving you with a striped effect, then slice the cucumber and place it round the edge of the plate for a lovely centrepiece.

Easy Mango and Chicken Salad with Coconut Caesar Dressing

– Paleo Flourish Magazine

Ingredients: romaine lettuce, chicken breasts, coconut oil, mango, coconut cream, garlic, salt.

Caesar dressing is a great way to dress a salad, giving it a creamy, garlic taste that goes so well with the chicken. For an AIP version of caesar dressing, all you need is coconut cream with some garlic and salt. Fresh mango and chicken are the perfect partners and you end up with a salad that reminds you of summer days. This is a fantastic salad to serve on its own for a light and tasty meal, or make a large dish to serve for buffets or family get-togethers.

AIP Chicken Recipes – Roast Dishes

AIP Chicken Recipes #aip - https://paleomagazine.com/aip-chicken-recipes/

Roasted Balsamic Chicken

– Popular Paleo
Ingredients: chicken, garlic, rosemary, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Celtic sea salt.

Balsamic vinegar is an amazing ingredient when marinating meat as it has such a depth of flavor that it takes around 20 minutes. It tastes great in this roast chicken recipe, but the same marinade can be used when you are roasting pork, or try it on a leg of lamb for Sunday dinner or when you have friends round for a meal. When serving this chicken, you can drizzle the meat with any juices from the roasting tin to add even more flavor.

This recipe is so simple and takes hardly any time to prepare. You might think it strange putting the garlic and rosemary inside the chicken, but this way the flavors really get absorbed into the meat as it cooks. If you don’t have the herbes de provence, then this will work just as well either without herbs, or using some that you do have.

Slow Roasted Chicken

– Real Food Forager
Ingredients: chicken, chicken feet, sea salt, onions, carrots, celery, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, lemon (optional), extra virgin olive oil (or chicken fat), water.

Using a slow cooker to roast meat leaves it tender and juicy, especially if you rest it for a few minutes before serving. You do not need to tie the legs together, but it can help to cook the chicken more evenly and is stops the vegetables and lemon from escaping from the cavity. To make sure the chicken is cooked through, slide a knife into the thickest part and the juices should run clear. If there is a hint of pink then increase the cooking time.

Roasted Garlic & Artichoke Stuffed Chicken

– Popular Paleo
Ingredients: garlic, artichoke hearts, sea salt, parsley, extra virgin olive oil, skinless chicken breasts, baby spinach.

Roasting garlic gives it a surprising sweetness and totally different flavor to normal cooked garlic. With the stuffing being made with the roast garlic and artichoke hearts, it has a smoother texture which sets off the texture of the chicken. If you use wooden skewers to secure the chicken breasts then you are better to soak them first, but using metal skewers can help to cook the chicken more evenly as they carry the heat to the centre of the meat.

AIP Chicken Recipes – Slow Cooker Recipes

AIP Chicken Recipes #aip - https://paleomagazine.com/aip-chicken-recipes/

Slow Cooker Bacon & Chicken

– Paleo Flourish Magazine
Slow Cooker Bacon & Chicken
Ingredients: chicken breasts, bacon, thyme, oregano, rosemary, olive oil, salt.

The fat from the bacon in this recipe helps to keep the chicken from drying out too much, and they certainly go well together! Here is another versatile recipe that lets you use whatever herbs you prefer, so don’t be put off if you don’t like the ones used here. Tarragon or basil are just a couple of different ideas that you could try instead.

Crockpot Chicken With Plums, Carrots And Apples

– A Squirrel in the Kitchen
Ingredients: chicken breasts, carrots, onion, apples, plums, full fat coconut milk, salt, sage.

A slow cooker, or crockpot, is a really useful way to cook meals as you just place the ingredients in and forget about it! It also means that you keep most of the nutrients in your food, and it can improve the digestibility of the food. Adding plums and apples gives this dish a wonderful sweetness and it is a great meal to serve on a chilly day.

Paleo Slow Cooker Apple Honey Chicken Drumsticks

– Paleo Flourish Magazine
Paleo Slow Cooker Honey Apple Chicken Drumsticks Recipe - https://paleomagazine.compaleo-slow-cooker-apple-honey-chicken-drumsticks-recipe
Ingredients: apples, honey, chicken drumsticks, salt, cinnamon (optional).

If you have never tried cooking drumsticks in the slow cooker, then be assured – they are delicious! The meat should be so tender and will fall off the bones quite easily when they are ready. If you choose to serve them with the apple sauce from the base of the slow cooker, you will find it adds a special flavor to the chicken, but be careful because hot fruit can burn you quite easily! The cinnamon is optional, but it adds a fantastic note to the flavor of the apples.

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken

– Sweet Potato and Social Change
Ingredients: chicken breasts, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, garlic, salt.

This dish is reminiscent of Chinese honey chicken, and can be made very easily in a slow cooker. The honey gives a subtle sweetness to this meal, which uses ingredients most of us would already have in the store cupboard. To serve, you could either put it with a green salad or try it with some broccoli. With virtually no preparation required, this is a great dish for busy people.

Paleo Slow Cooker Orange Chicken

– Paleo Flourish Magazine
Slow Cooker Orange Chicken Recipe https://paleomagazine.com/paleo-slow-cooker-orange-chicken-recipe
Ingredients: chicken breasts, oranges, ginger, garlic, coconut aminos.

This recipe has its roots in Chinese cookery. It is tangy and delicious and will impress your dinner guests. Here we used navel oranges, but you can try it with mandarins or, as a special treat and if you can find them, blood oranges give this dish a really special flavor. Serve on its own or with a simple salad.

Chicken soup has been a classic in many families for a long time, especially if you’re not feeling too great. This is because it has the satisfying and comforting taste that we love! This is a great recipe for using up leftover bones and veggies from a roast and the strength can be adjusted quite easily by adding more water.

Homemade Thai Chicken Soup

Homemade Thai Chicken Soup
Ingredients: chicken, lemongrass, basil leaves, ginger, lime, salt

This soup really has an authentic Thai taste, thanks to the lemongrass and ginger. The fresh basil and lime juice give this dish some amazing fresh flavors and it is a light and fragrant starter which will impress any guests, or just to enjoy on your own. You can even spice this up a bit by adding some chilli flakes.

Creamy Crockpot Lemon Chicken Kale Soup

– AIP Lifestyle
Ingredients: chicken, bone broth, kale, lemons, lemon juice, onions, olive oil, salt.

On a chilly day there is little better than a delicious bowl of chicken soup to warm you and fill you up. This recipe gives you a creamy soup that is packed with flavor and goodness. If your family has a problem eating vegetables, then cooking them in a soup can be the answer. We all know the health benefits of kale so this is a great way to encourage everyone to try it!

Coconut Curry Soup (Nightshade Free)

– Beyond the Bite
Ingredients: chicken thighs or turkey cutlets, full-fat canned coconut milk, chicken stock, ground turmeric, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, garlic powder, fresh lemongrass, leeks (white parts), sweet potato, baby bok choy, cauliflower, orange juice, coconut aminos, sea salt, fish sauce.

Using all the spices gives this soup a traditionally authentic curry taste and brings all the health benefits of ingredients like turmeric and ginger. If you use chicken thighs, this soup can be quite cheap to make, yet the thigh meat is tastier than breast meat as it is close to the bone. This recipe gives you a delicious soup that would make a great starter for a dinner party.

Chicken Noodle Soup

– Elana’s Pantry
Ingredients: chicken stock, celery, carrot, zucchini.

If you have never tried zucchini noodles, then this soup is a lovely introduction to them! They look like ordinary noodles and, if you don’t tell the kids, they are a fantastic way to get them eating healthier too! Try to make your own stock if you can just by boiling up the carcass of a roast chicken –it is tastier than shop-bought and guaranteed to be free from nasty additives. This soup is a great pick-me-up on cold days or if you’re not feeling too good.

Healing Chicken Soup

– Stupid Easy Paleo
Ingredients: chicken broth, ginger, turmeric, garlic, fish sauce, chicken, shiitake mushrooms, green onions, carrot, sea salt.

Although this recipe is designed to heal, feel free to try it anytime! It is warming, satisfying and will fill you up after a busy day. It has a subtle spice and a gentle heat from the ginger. This is a versatile dish as you can substitute the veggies for your own favorites, or use it as a great way to use up leftovers.

Homemade chicken soup has got to be a favorite in most households. This recipe is a more traditional one, and again it can be versatile to make use of whatever vegetables you have.

It is a good idea to make stock like this one in large batches which can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer, and then you will always have it as a base for soups or sauces whenever you need them. It is so easy to make your own and that way you are in control of what is added. Simply place bones and veggies into a slow cooker with some water and a few hours later it is done!

When making this stock, remember that the feet are simply a good source of collagen and make a tasty base for soups, so try not to be put off by their look. For the bouquet garni you could consider changing the herbs you use from time to time; experiment with your favorites, or try using tarragon which goes really well with chicken.

Ginger is such a handy ingredient to have around as it goes so well with so many foods. It can easily be stored in the freezer, so you don’t need to go buy it every time you need it. The chicken legs in this recipe will release enough liquid to form a ginger sauce at the bottom of the dish which can then be spooned over the finished meal. If you like the legs to be brown when you serve them, take the lid off for the last 15 minutes of cooking.

Honey Lemon Chicken

– Ditch The Wheat

If you have never tried roasted lemons, then this is your chance. They give out a lovely lemony sauce which can then be served over the meat at the end. Honey and lemon have both traditionally been served with chicken and this dish is no exception, it’s just a healthier way to dish them up! With very little preparation involved, this recipe is easy to make and very impressive to serve.

Split Savory Chicken

– Real Food Forager
Ingredients: chicken, garlic, scallion, salt, sprigs of fresh savory, fat.

When you remove the bone from the chicken, don’t throw it away – it can be cooked up to make bone broth so you don’t waste any part of the bird. Splitting the chicken makes it look so impressive and makes it much easier to carve! Savory is a member of the mint family and can be used with any meat the way sage is used, and makes a great partner with this chicken dish.

Creamy Mushroom Chicken Thighs

– That Paleo Couple
Ingredients: avocado oil, chicken thighs, herbes de provence, salt, yellow onion, garlic, white mushrooms, chicken broth, coconut cream, parsley.

Mushrooms and chicken have been used in dishes for many years and are a favorite with many families. This is a lovely creamy dish that tastes so good served on its own or with vegetables. You could follow the recipe completely, or experiment by using different mushrooms and herbs. Shiitake mushrooms would be great with this, and try sage and basil instead of the herbes de provence.

Easy Orange Chicken Stir Fry

– Paleo Flourish Magazine
easy orange chicken saute recipe https://paleomagazine.com/easy-orange-chicken-stir-fry #aip #paleo
Ingredients: avocado oil, chicken breasts, salt, navel orange, coconut aminos, ginger, garlic.

This is another dish that shows how well chicken and citrus go together! The orange gives a lovely tang to the sauce, yet there is a subtle sweetness too. When cooked, the chicken will have absorbed all the sauce, leaving it so succulent. Remember that ginger can be grated while still frozen; that way you can keep a stock of it so you never run out.

AIP Chicken Recipes – Snack Dishes

AIP Chicken Recipes #aip - https://paleomagazine.com/aip-chicken-recipes/

Chicken Liver Pate

– Salixisme – AIP Living
Ingredients: chicken livers, shallot, garlic, dried sage, dried rosemary, dried thyme, bay leaf, bone broth, sea salt, ground cloves, coconut cream, coconut oil.

Many of us who are dealing with health concerns or dietary issues know that we should be eating more liver because of all its nutritious value. But if you don’t enjoy the taste, then turning it into a pate can be the answer since it doesn’t have the strong, metallic flavor associated with liver. This pate has a smooth and creamy texture and makes a perfect snack with veggie sticks like celery and carrots.

Healthy Chicken Finger

Chicken tenders can be bought on their own and are cheaper than chicken breast, but breast meat is fine if you can’t find them. This dish is perfect for parties and celebrations, or just as a quick lunchtime treat. Serve them with your own favorite dip or salsa, ketchup or mayo. As they are gluten-free, Paleo, and AIP, they make an ideal dish to serve if your guests have dietary issues.

Crispy Smoked Chicken Wings

Just imagine serving a huge dish of these smokey chicken wings at your next barbecue or party! There may not be too much meat on a wing, but they make the perfect finger food. If you don’t have a smoker, simply cook them on the grill over wood chips to get the same effect. They can be enjoyed just as they are, or why not try making a chili dip to enjoy with them?
