Paleo chicken legs, fast!

Standard

20130315-202554.jpg

My little cave-family eats more like a pack of saber-toothed tigers. They eat a LOT! I pride myself on my meal planning (and quantity planning) abilities, but sometimes I fall short. When my fridge is bare I fear I will be eaten next. So, I always have a package of organic chicken legs in the freezer….it just might save my life someday.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 large packages of organic chicken legs (the dark meat is the healthiest part of the chicken, so ditch the chicken breasts)
  • Coconut oil for smearing
  • Spices (this time I used salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika)

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 375*. Grease a glass baking dish with coconut oil. Placed legs in dish and pat dry with paper towels. Smear with coconut oil. Season liberally with spices, they add a nice texture and crust. Bake until a meat thermometer reads 165*. You can baste with the juices as it cook,s but that’s totally optional. Who has time for that while fighting the family off with a wooden spoon anyway?!

The reverse omelette

Standard

We consume, on average, around 4 dozen eggs per week in our household. While I absolutely love eggs, they simply can’t dominate every meal that I eat! So, I decided to let green dominate my breakfast today with the reverse omelette. In order to properly absorb the nutrients in the broccoli, you need to eat it with some fat….bacon grease it is!

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 packages pre-cut organic broccoli
  • 1 package uncured bacon

Directions:
Steam broccoli until crisp-tender. Scramble eggs. Cut up bacon and cook until crispy. Add broccoli to bacon pan and stir to coat. Top with eggs. Easy and delish! This makes a few meals worth.
