Chicken with Green Beans

Chicken with Green Beans (a Paleo Recipe)

A Paleo Recipe

A Paleo Recipe

Ingredients:

1 lb. chicken meat

1-2lbs. fresh green beans

Favorite Chicken Wing Sauce

Coconut oil for pan

Directions:

1. Cut up chicken meat into squares.

2. Once chicken is cut up, place in a bag and marinate meat in chicken wing sauce. If you use “Uncle Dougies” I recommend 1.5 tablespoons. Mix the chicken up with the sauce to make sure the chicken is all coated.

3. Marinate for 45 minutes (longer for spicier taste) in the refrigerator.

4. While chicken is marinating, snip the ends off your fresh green beans.

5. After a 45 minutes has passed, warm up a TBL of coconut oil in one pan for the green beans and another TBL of coconut oil in the other pan for the chicken. Let the oil get nice and hot.

6. I dumb my marinate and chicken into one pan and let it cook for 6 minutes (flipping chicken at 3 minutes). Time may vary depending on chicken square size.

7. While chicken is cooking, put green beans into another pan. Allow this to cook while chicken is cooking. Stir often.

8. Once chicken is cooked and green beans are lightly cooked, mix the green beans in with the chicken mixture. Stir it around and let it cook together for about 2 minutes.

9. Enjoy your chicken with green beans!!

Lime Chicken

Zesty Chicken!

Zesty Chicken!


You’ll Need:
* 3 tablespoons soy sauce
* 2 Tbs. honey
* 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
* Juice of 1 Lime
* 1 teaspoon minced garlic
* 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

In a small bowl combine soy sauce, honey, vegetable oil, lime juice, and garlic.

If you want to have grilled breasts, Place chicken breast halves into the mixture, and turn to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes. If you prefer kebabs, as are pictured, cut the chicken into large chunks, skewer onto bamboo sticks that have been soaked in water for 5 minutes, and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

For a slightly zestier version, add a teaspoon of Freshly Chopped cilantro to the marinade.

Grill on medium high heat for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear. Serve with fresh salad, steamed veggies, baked potato or any of your favorite sides. For variation, try marinating shrimp, (which will take 2-4 minutes to grill in all!)

Fun ice cubes for your drink of choice!


This is great fun, healthy (pure fruit!), super easy and will add a touch of pure, refreshing class to your drinks! This is a guaranteed pleaser for kids and adults alike. Why didn’t I think of this years ago?

You will need:
• Blender (although you could mash the fruit quite successfully in a bowl if you want to do it ‘low-tech’ style!)
• Ice cube trays
• Your favorite fruit

Put the desired fruit in the blender and either puree or blend for a shorter time in order to leave some chunks (notice how great this looks with berries, kiwi and other fruit). Pour the blended fruit into your ice cube trays, freeze and you’re done!

Add cubes to lemonade, water or frozen drink of choice!
