We had an awesome turnout for our Paleo potluck on Saturday.  Those of you that brought stuff please post your recipes because everything was so good.  I am so proud of you all for coming up with some delicious Paleo-friendly creations.

Sweet, moist, Paleo-friendly deliciousness.  Proceed with caution.  This should not be your new breakfast food.  These muffins are to be enjoyed in moderation, every once in a while.  It is a treat, not a staple.

  1. Ate all that food at the Paleo barbeque, ate a boat-load of food at Mike’s watching Lesnar get his ass kicked, AND lost two pounds. What a Saturday, can we do that one all over again.

  2. Ingredients:

    4 Chicken breasts
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp sea salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/2 cup almond flour
    3 tbs olive oil
    medium onion cut into thin slices
    3 tbs capers
    juice from a lemon
    1/2 cup white wine

    Pound chicken breasts to a quarter of an inch thick. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Dredge in almond flour and shake off excess. Let rest for 10 minutes on a plate.

    Heat skillet over medium high heat and pour in olive oil. Sautee chicken for about 3 minutes per side. Pull chicken out. Put in onion and cook until soft and translucent. Add in capers, wine, and lemon juice. Put chicken back in. Cook for another 3-5 minutes. Serve with sauce.

    I added mushrooms and I’m sure you could add other vegetables if you’d like. Enjoy.
