I first made this Spicy Chicken with Grilled Lime recipe for a Sunday night dinner when my in-laws were visiting. They were delighted by this easy chicken recipe and impressed with how quickly I was able to throw it together after we arrived home with them from a weekend in the mountains. The best thing about grilled chicken? The grill! As in no messy pans or baking dishes to clean up.

Asian Stir Fry with Cauliflower Rice; photo by Leigh Beisch
Today I want to share a deliciously healthy recipe from my latest book Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry. I’d also like to thank all of you who let me know on Facebook and twitter that you found the book at both Costco and Target. It’s great to see the Paleo and grain-free trends spreading. Everyone deserves healthy food.

This high-protein chicken dinner (full of cauliflower and olives) is a wonderful Paleo one pot meal.
This hearty, grain-free, savory Paleo dinner dish is a hit with adults and teens alike in our house. I often serve it with a Spinach Salad for a filling, vegetable heavy dinner.
While we eat chicken once or twice per week, I also try to serve the boys (all 3 of them) steak each week as that is their favorite dinner. They are more than happy when ... read more →

Serve tangy Mustard Lime Chicken for dinner with a side of asparagus, or any other healthy green vegetable.
I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes for chicken breast, so I was mighty happy when a reader left this comment on my post for grilled Mustard Lime Chicken:
Fantastic chicken! Our son was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease about one month ago, and I have to tell you that your recipes have been such a help. We all loved the ... read more →

My version of Perfect Roast Chicken is based upon one from Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. This go to dish is something I make at least once a week, after which I generally use the carcass for chicken stock. My best friend from childhood, Helen, introduced me to Ina, and I have been hooked on her books ever since.
While Ina’s recipe for Perfect Roast Chicken calls for wheat flour, chicken stock and butter, mine is a tad simpler and gluten ... read more →

Spunky Coconut’s Chicken Meatballs!
This giveaway is now closed.
This recipe comes from The Spunky Coconut Cookbook by my adorable friend, Kelly Brozyna of the spunkycoconut.com.
Last weekend, between all of my writing deadlines, I snuck out of the house, away from the computer to meet up with Kelly and her family at the Boulder Farmer’s Market. We grabbed some grub from the market, splashed around with her gorgeous daughters in the creek, then walked around downtown together for a while.
How refreshing! I ... read more →

This Rosemary Lemon Chicken has become my go to dinner dish this summer. In fact, I’ve been making it a couple of times a week and loving it, as has my family –children included. It’s super easy to make, very healthy and fabulously fresh and delicious with hints of garlic, lemon and rosemary complementing the flavor of grilled chicken.
Rosemary Lemon Chicken
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, pressed
¼ cup fresh rosemary, minced
½ teaspoon ... read more →

I can tell this Green Chicken Soup is going to become one of my go to dishes in no time at all.
I love this soup because it is an easy way to take in powerfully nutritious greens. While I love my green juices in theory, in reality, my stomach doesn’t always agree with them, especially when it’s cold outside. That’s when it’s time to make Green Chicken Soup. Somehow, the carrots and kale give the soup a delicious sweet flavor, which makes this ... read more →

The other day, one of my favorite commenters suggested that I post a roundup of leftover chicken recipes; actually at this point I would probably call ~M (that’s the handle she uses when commenting on my site) a “contributor.”
I quickly took to ~M’s idea since this time of year so many of us are suffering from post holiday cooking fatigue. If you have leftover chicken or turkey from the holidays or if you want to throw a bird in the ... read more →

Kumquats are in season right now. What’s a kumquat you ask? Essentially it’s a citrus fruit that closely resembles an orange, though it is much smaller. If you want to know more about kumquats there is a great article over at the Cooking Light website.
Meanwhile, here’s a cozy holiday recipe for gluten free Kumquat Garlic Chicken. We’re having this tonight for the first night of Hanukkah, along with Squash Latkes and gluten free Matzo Ball Soup, of course.

This recipe was inspired by Jaden’s Lemongrass Chicken and Coconut Soup from her fabulous book, The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook. I received it in the mail on Friday and played with it all weekend long. It is a captivating book, full of gorgeous pictures (which she styled and shot herself) and easy recipes. I’m in love. Last night, I made this Coconut Chicken Soup, Jaden’s Grilled Fish with Kabayaki Sauce (also from The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook) and some stir fried broccoli.

This Paleo Chicken Noodle Soup is super easy if you have chicken stock on hand.
It’s a gray day here in Boulder and I decided some soup would be in order. Chicken Noodle Soup to be exact. So what’s a gluten free grain free girl to do for noodles? Zucchini. Yes, DIY zucchini noodles.
This recipe is super easy if you have chicken stock on hand. I keep several jars in the freezer and try to have one in the fridge ... read more →

It’s wonderful to be back at home with my family and kitchen. I’ve made myriad soup stocks these last few days in order to help my husband and myself recuperate from the sniffles we each seem to have picked up last week. We’re recovering quite quickly.
To create a bit of variety, I decided to make a roasted chicken stock last night and of course consulted one of my favorite books, Joy of Cooking. The recipe below is based upon the ... read more →

My younger son is a big fan of my Chipotle Orange Chicken and asks me to make it on a weekly basis. Since it’s perfect grilling weather, I decided to make a version of this recipe with chicken breasts that could easily be thrown on the grill –just in time for when they arrive home from baseball practice.
Yes, we’re back in baseball season, this time it’s fall ball.
I like to serve this tangy, gluten free chicken dish with grilled broccoli. ... read more →

One of my projects this year has been getting “Operation Hen House” up and running. With the completion of our house for the hens in the side yard and the screened in chicken run attached to it, we became the proud “parents” of 5 teenage chickens. They have not yet begun to lay.
All credit for Operation Hen House, goes to the amazing Patrick, who built the house and its accompanying screened in yard and helped me with a bunch of ... read more →

We’ve been eating quite a lot of salad lately, and being the protein addict that I am, I’m constantly looking for new ways to make it into a full dinner.
I was first introduced to Chinese Chicken Salad years ago, by my dear friend Helen. We’ve been friends now for close to 30 years and good salad is only one of the many things she has taught me about. My version is a little different from hers, since she’s not gluten ... read more →

With a few edits to the classic Cobb, this tasty traditional salad becomes nutritious high protein fare packed with healthy veggies. This Cobb Salad is a great make ahead dish. Prepare individual ingredients earlier in the day or the night before and then assemble the salad just before serving.
Traditionally, blue cheese is one of the main ingredients in Cobb Salad, however, I’ve eliminated this ingredient to create a delicious dairy-free dinner. Of course, Cobb Salad is traditionally gluten-free, so that was ... read more →

Are you spending too much time on the computer? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. After reading this article in The Atlantic and finding out about this new site that calculates the amount of time spent on twitter, I’ve really been pondering this matter.
I haven’t been pondering it too much though. Instead, last weekend, I took a break and left my computer off for 48 hours. Wow, I did have quite a surprise on Monday morning, ... read more →

The other night while I was tucking in my super snuggly 10 year old into bed, we discussed possibilities for the next night’s dinner.
“Fennel” he suggested, “I really like it because it’s sweet and also very healthy!”
“What would you like for our protein dish?” I asked. “What about that roasted chicken I made the other night that you guys gobbled up?”
“No, something else, something sweet and sour,” he replied.
“Ok,” I said. “What about agave lime chicken?”
“Yum! That sounds great.” my ... read more →
