Paleo Chicken Recipes
Chicken is a staple in our house and it’s so easy to transform any cut into any number of Paleo Chicken Recipes that are both flavor packed and healthy!
If you can afford it, and have access to some of the higher welfare chickens such as free range and organic, then they often taste a lot better than the factory farmed variety and fits really well with the Paleo diet.
I say often, because sometimes the organic supermarket chicken is mass produced and frankly doesn’t taste a whole lot better.
I have had better success in the past buying directly from local farmers in my area, you should be able to find places online near you that offer this sort of thing.
Their chickens are usually farmed in small batches and have freedom to roam, are not confined to sheds or given exclusively vegetarian feed (chickens are not vegetarian) so they tend to taste a whole lot better.
I’ve put together a collection of some of my own paleo chicken recipes I love and some from my fellow blogging friends, I hope you like them and that they make your paleo dinner planning just a little bit easier!
