Cooking with Elle // Honey Lemon Chicken

Honey Lemon Chicken

I am not a huge meat-eater, but I have recently been trying new chicken dishes and purchasing free-range, antibiotic-free organic chicken breast. This recipe is so good, I made it twice in the last few weeks. The recipe in Paleo Cooking from Elana's Pantryby Elana Amsterdam  (p. 65) calls for a whole chicken, but I substituted chicken breast since that is the only part of the chicken I typically eat. I made a few other changes to the recipe and love the result.

What You Need:
2 lb chicken breast
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sea salt
2-3 lemons, sliced
1 large onion, chopped
1 head of garlic

Preheat the oven at 350*F then rinse chicken and pat dry. Cut into strips and place in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and honey, sprinkle with salt. Place onions, lemons, and garlic in between the chicken breasts.

Bake the chicken for 60-80 minutes, until well browned. 
Serve with kale avocado salad and voila! A delicious paleo meal,
full of proteins, healthy fats, and tons of nutrients!
