Paleo Raspberry Chicken (I know it sounds weird but it just works)




I'm wiping my eyes as I write this post because I just finished watching Dogs on the Inside on Netflix and it gave me a REAL GOOD CRY. A good happy cry. A good, happy, very very ugly cry. Everyone needs those once in awhile right?

This recipe was an experiment gone good (I've had a few gone bad recently so it was quite a relief when this went right). And it was easy! Here it is:

Servings: 2
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins

Ingredients
  • 2 lbs chicken (I got the organic at Wal-Mart for $8)
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp basil
  • ½ cup frozen (or fresh) raspberries
  • ¼ cup water

For the marinade, I used this recipe.


Before I left for work I put the chicken in a ziploc freezer bag and scooped about 1/2 cup of the raspberry vinaigrette in and let it marinate in the fridge for the day.

That night we grilled the chicken. We ate it with salad topped with the leftover raspberry vinaigrette and it was delissshhh. If you don't have a grill (  ):  )  you can put it in the oven for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees. 

(PS note my bootie coffee mug photo bombing the chicken and salad pic)
