Running late from work? Try this easy paleo lemon chicken recipe. It cooks in an hour and has minimum preparation time. We used chicken thighs to bring the dish in on budget. It tastes fresh and summery and light which is great given the current heat wave we are experiencing in West Yorkshire! We had this dish with savoy cabbage which we cooked with black mustard seed, onion, garlic and spare veg from the fridge. The twist was a dash of lime squeezed onto the cabbage mixture when it had finished cooking..yum.
Paleo Lemon Chicken
6 – 8 chicken thighs
I- 2 onions
Turn the oven to 200°C
Brown off the chicken in a frying pan with the coconut oil and place in a roasting tin. Quarter the lemons and squeeze the juice over the chicken then chuck the rest into the roasting tin. Add the onions, carrots, peppers and garlic.
Place in the oven for 45 mins. Remove add the mushrooms and return for a further 15 mins.
Savoy Cabbage Side Dish
Black mustard seeds
1/2 savoy cabbage (shredded)
1 onion + spare veg from the store cupboard/fridge
juice 1/2 lime

Fry the black mustard seeds til they pop! Add onion and cook til soft. Add spare veg. Add cabbage and garlic and fry for a further 2 to 3 mins.

Note to all paleo cooks out there!
You could change this up a little by adding cooked chicken or pancetta or bacon to make this a proper supper on it’s own.
