Paleo Chicken Thigh Recipes – 36 Scrumptious Meals To Try Today

Louise Hendon | February 13

When you’re cooking for a crowd or just wish to keep your grocery bill at an acceptable level, chicken is always a good choice. Especially chicken thighs!

They tend to be inexpensive and easily available (wherever you are) and to be honest with you, I think they’re tastier than chicken breasts. I know some people take the skin off and only eat the meat, but for me, the crispy skin is the yummiest part.

Choose The Best Cooking Method For Your Needs

  • Bake in the oven
    Casseroles are a sure hit with the kids! Try the chicken mushroom casserole, or if you’re not a fan of mushrooms, go for cherry tomatoes. You’ll love the sheet pan recipes, as well.
  • Let the crockpot handle it
    Fancy some salsa chicken? Maybe Asian chicken thighs? Or cauliflower chicken chili? I love using my slow cooker to make these recipes.
  • Quick and easy
    Try the almond butter chicken saute; you only need 15 minutes for cooking, but remember to marinate the chicken for 1 hour, for best flavor. You’ll also find a 3-ingredient chicken thigh recipe on this list – it doesn’t get any easier than that!

Paleo Carrot Cake with Coconut Butter Frosting

Louise Hendon | January 29

My little sister once proclaimed that she wouldn’t eat carrot cake because it was too healthy for dessert. However, many carrot cake recipes out there are anything but healthy, packed with so much sugar you can barely taste the carrots and crammed full of processed grains with little nutritional value. This Paleo carrot cake with coconut butter frosting is an antidote to that. Our recipe cuts the sugar and replaces it with coconut sugar. The all-purpose flour is dropped in favor of coconut and almond flour along with flaxmeal. With these ingredients cut back, the carrots finally have room to shine, highlighted by fragrant spices, coconut, walnuts. This is carrot cake as it was meant to be enjoyed.
