Savoy Cabbage Recipe


Savoy Lemon Chicken...Caveman Style.

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

1-2 lemons

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


Coconut oil

Black mustard seeds

1/2 savoy cabbage (shredded)

1 onion + spare veg from the store cupboard/fridge

juice 1/2 lime




Heat the oil

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.

Remove from heat and add a twist of lime.

Serve with the paleo lemon chicken.

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.


About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!
