Here are some recipes recommended by some of our Paleo Challenge peers (Thanks again, Potomac CrossFit!). We haven’t tried any of these yet, except Allison’s Salsa-pulled chicken, but as they come highly recommended, I wanted to be sure we had them where we could find them! (There are a LOT of comments on the Paleo Challenge blog page!!)

For Chicken Curry — This is a good recipe with instructional video too.

It takes about 45 mins to an hour too cook so I like to make a big batch over the weekend and refrigerate/freeze a good portion. It tastes even better reheated.

Best Chix Paleo meal yet:

(1) Allison’s Chicken in a crock pot w/ jar of salsa. Shred when done.

(2) Plop the chix over this:
Cauliflower rice sauteed on stove w/ a bit of chix broth, cumin, red pepper flakes, paprika, and garlic salt. (yummo!)

(3) top it all off with some super fresh homemade guac–all chunky w/ tomatos, red and green pepper, and onions. (or for those w/o so much time use some wholly guacamole…my lazy cheat.)

(A’s note- I did make the chicken, and added bacon strips to the bottom of the crockpot and cumin to the salsa… I’ll post full directions separately.)

Great work everyone! Here are a few recipes I love:

Paleo tacos

Chicken Tagine (only if you are having starch and omit raisins)

Slow roasted pork shoulder

Smothered brisket – make sure its grass fed as its a fattier meat. I bought mine from Alison and it was delicious

Tomato braised chicken (sub stock or broth for wine)

Just a tip that has helped me – make use of your grill and slow cooker. I make most of weeknight meals by either grilling a bunch of chicken or meat or slow cooking enough to last a few days.


Paleo Cooking Demo by Allison of “The Humble Gourmand
includes recipes for coconut-dill salmon, balsamic roasted radishes, meatloaf variation, and braised collard greens.
