Paleo Grilled Chicken Salad with Coconut Paleo Bread™

My goal here is to eat as close as possible to the Paleo way while spending the least amount of money on quality food. I don’t know about you but this way of life can be damaging to the pocketbook. So with that in mind, I am going to share another recipe with you that won’t break the bank! For my first lunch following the Paleo lifestyle, I made a Paleo Grilled Chicken Salad with Coconut Paleo Bread™ topped with Almond Butter. I didn’t quite have everything in my fridge that I would have liked, but I was still able to create a healthy yet delicious dish for lunch. Let’s get started once again.

 Ingredients:

  • ½ tbsp of coconut oil
  • 2 small Foster Farms® hormone free chicken thighs, pieced
  • 1 slice Coconut Paleo Bread, toasted
  • Trader Joe’s® Almond Butter, raw creamy unsalted
  • 1 bowl of Organic Spring Mix from Costco®
  • Raspberry Merlot Olive Oil Vinaigrette Salad Dressing by Bolthouse Farms®
  • Nature’s Way® EfaGold Organic Flax Oil
  • 1 organic celery stalk, sliced
  • ½ organic cucumber, sliced
  • 1 small organic tomato, cubed
  • 1 small bushel cilantro 

 Directions:

  1. Heat ½ tablespoon of coconut oil in frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add 2 small chicken thighs & cook in frying pan until fully cooked, flipping once.
  3. Pull chunks of chicken from bones & set aside.
  4. Rinse & chop all veggies.
  5. Toss veggies with organic spring mix salad.
  6. Top with grilled chicken pieces, splash Flax Oil & Raspberry Vinaigrette onto salad and serve.

 Prep Time:

Now, of course, you may add ingredient amounts to what I have listed to feed more people if you wish. I just happen to be the only one eating this way in my household at this time.
