The other day I shared my recipe for my Paleo Sweet Chilli Sauce, a great dipping sauce made with all paleo compliant ingredients. Well, here is the recipe that I served it with when I was asked along to a ‘bring-a-plate’ night with friends.
These paleo asian baked meatballs are quick and easy to make, and use common fresh ingredients in most paleo homes. The flavour is subtle and not over powering, so the kids can enjoy them too.
Here is a very simple dish to bake that is so simple and easy, but with plenty of flavour. It is also fairly inexpensive, and I know to many families this is very important. The dish is using chicken thighs, which are often slightly cheaper than chicken breasts to buy and they are fantastic to cook with. The meat of thighs stays more moist during cooking and is perfect for saucy dishes like curries and stews.
Chicken thighs are also terrific to bake. I know that I used to always use breast meat for all my dishes and have only recently started cooking more and more with the thighs. Baking the thighs is my new favourite thing to to. It is really simple to lay the thighs in a dish, add some of your favourite flavours and pop in the oven. Dinner done.
I haven’t shared a lot of salads, as I think that its pretty straight forward that they are easily made Paleo. There is one salad that has to be shared though. Before turning Paleo, taco’s would be a weekly occurrence in my house.
They were a great meal to whip together for the kids on those busy sports nights or when you wanted to serve up something healthy but had little time or energy. They still do happen, but now the rest of the family have gluten free white corn tortillas and I use lettuce cups for mine.
Some nights you just want something that is warm and comforting to eat. This recipe is perfect for a cold winters day or to share with friends.
