Easy Paleo and Whole 30 Chicken Dinner

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

Hi! How was everyone's fourth? Mine was awesome! The park across the street from my house puts on an amazzzing bootleg fireworks show so we put on a cookout and enjoyed the show with family and friends. It was pretty much perfect, and as you can tell we 100% committed to the theme (thanks, Amazon)!

Anyway, the other day I had a killer craving for okra (weird I know, but I love okra a LOT) and there was NOT ONE PIECE OF OKRA TO BE FOUND AT TRADER JOE'S so I grabbed a pack of brussel sprouts, a pack of mushrooms, and a bag of frozen asparagus and called it a day.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Servings: 2 (with leftovers for lunch)

  • 2 chicken breasts, sliced (I use organic/cage free so it's a little pricier at $8)
  • 8 sticks of asparagus - do we call these sticks? What is the right term? Stalks? ($3)
  • 1 pack of brussel sprouts, halved ($2.50)
  • Handful mushrooms, sliced ($1)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Garlic salt to taste
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

Toss it all together, throw it in a baking dish and bake at 425 degrees for 30 mins. Minimal work, maximum healthy meal.

What is your favorite chicken dish?

  2. Aww, I hope we also celebrate our independence day the way you do. Ours is just is a normal and ordinary day. I will still try this recipe though.
