Paleo Chicken Kiev Recipe

paleo chicken kiev recipe
I recall eating chicken kiev a lot growing up in England. Of course, it was the prepackaged kind that you stuck into the oven (definitely not Paleo chicken kievs!).

However, it never occurred to me that they were Ukrainian in origin (hence the name “kiev”). Although, according to Wikipedia, the Russians claim they invented it.

paleo chicken nuggets recipe
As soon as Jeremy tasted these Paleo chicken nuggets, he looked up at me with a mouthful and said, “Wow, everyone is going to love this!”

It’s really easy, delicious, and perfect for kids (young or old!).

I made a baked version of this before (recipe here), but I really think my new Paleo chicken nuggets recipe below (shallow fried in ghee) is even better!

paleo gluten free popcorn shrimp recipe
Jeremy always talks about his childhood spent eating and drinking non-Paleo classics like chocolate milk, bologna sandwiches, cherry coke, and popcorn shrimp (things I thankfully missed out on growing up in England). But, I thought I’d bring back some of his childhood foods by recreating Paleo versions of them. The Paleo popcorn shrimp recipe turned out amazingly well (in fact, Jeremy thought it was probably better than what he remembered!).

Braised Cardamom Cabbage and Pork

Paleo braised cardamom Cabbage and pork
I’ve found that cabbage and pork go really well together, and this dish combines those flavors along with the slightly tangy flavors of cardamom and apple. It’s a fantastic one pot meal (in fact, I often make double the recipe at the same time with 2 large saucepans)!

Paleo Thai Chicken and “Rice”

paleo stuffed peppers recipe with butternut squash and ground beef

This was so good – Jeremy couldn’t get enough of it! The gentle hint of cinnamon and cardamom goes really well with the butternut squash, and the sweetness of the butternut squash and the bell peppers is fantastic with the ground beef.

I know this dish looks really fancy, but it’s actually very easy to make! It’s perfect as a well-rounded meal or as an appetizer. (I would serve 1 stuffed pepper per person for an appetizer, or 2 stuffed peppers per person for an entree.)

paleo mustard celery ground beef recipe

This dish was so good I had to make it twice in the same day! It’s so easy and uses very common ingredients. The mustard works really well with the celery and ground beef to create a really flavorful and nutritious meal.

This is especially fantastic for whenever you’re short on time – it takes just 20 minutes from start to finish (prep time is really short because there’s so little to chop).

simple paleo coconut seafood soup recipe

I’m a big fan of soups, especially during the winter months. And the best thing about soups is that they’re really really easy to make and can be an entire meal!

This easy seafood soup is so nutritious and filling – it’s packed with vegetables, coconut milk, and your choice of seafood.

paleo gluten-free wedding planning

Weddings are Tough!

If you’ve ever planned any large party or event, then you’ll know just how tough it can be.

There are so many moving parts to organize, so many different people to please, and always some last minute glitches! So just imagine when you also have to add in Paleo/Gluten-Free/Dietary Restrictions into the mix!

From the start, Jeremy and I were worried about the food at our wedding, and we found a caterer months before we did anything else (I wrote about our wedding menu just before the wedding in this post)!

Our caterer (Joshua Charles) was fantastic, but all sorts of other food and drink issues come up nearer the time (should we serve a cake, what about desserts, what oils should the food be cooked in, was there enough variety for everyone, what party favors would our guests like, what alcohols should we serve, should we serve soda???). And this was outside of the technical issues we encountered with our RSVP website (we wanted to go high tech) or our uncertainty as to whether the taxi service would be able to drop people at the location or our last minute decision to install a dance floor into the courtyard (and yes, the police did stop by for a friendly chat with me about the noise!).

It would have been easy just to give up on my diet for one day, but this was the biggest opportunity I had for demonstrating to my closest family and friends just how fantastic Paleo food is and can make them feel! And it turned out to be not difficult at all because we paid attention to the five areas below.

You asked for a Paleo Bread Recipe

I’ve had a lot of requests for a full loaf paleo bread recipe, so here it is! It takes longer than my microwave bread recipe, but it’s worth the wait (most of the extra time is just waiting for it to cook in the oven), and you can make enough to share.

paleo beef wellington (gluten-free, grain-free)
I’ve always been a big fan of Gordon Ramsay, and one of his signature dishes is Beef Wellington (a classic British dish – more about it below). I was therefore a bit sad that I couldn’t order it at his Las Vegas restaurant (it comes with a wheat-based puff pastry that is indispensable to the dish).

That of course doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy grain-free Paleo Beef Wellington at home!

What is a Beef Wellington?

Beef Wellington is a classic British dish comprising of a beef tenderloin smothered with pâté and duxelles, wrapped with puff pastry, and then baked.

The exact origins of the dish seem to be unknown (it’s appeared in cookbooks since around the 1940s and became popular during the 1960s), and while there are suggestions that it’s named after the Duke of Wellington or the Wellington Boot, there’s no concrete evidence supporting any of these claims.

There are lots of variations of the recipe, and I’ve created 2 Paleo variations: one with a Paleo (gluten-free) pastry and one without a pastry.

Orange Liver Saute

Orange Liver Saute
If you’ve read some of my other liver recipes, then you’ll know that I’ve been trying to find a way to make liver delicious even for people (like my husband) who dislike the taste of liver.

So, here’s another one – this time with oranges. The orange flavor, along with the cinnamon, really helps to cover the taste of liver!

Jeremy’s response to the dish: “This may be your best one yet!”

Bison Pineapple Chili

Paleo Bison Pineapple Chili Recipe
I’m a fan of fruit in my chili (see my Raspberry Liver Chili Recipe), and so I decided to experiment a bit more with that theme for this recipe.

Have you tried Bison?

I can still recall the first time I tried bison. It was at Ted’s Montana Grill in New York City. This is one of Ted Turner’s companies, and its main focus is bison. I had no clue what bison was at the time, but I LOVED IT.

Beef Bacon Acorn Squash Mash Bowl

paleo beef bacon tips acorn squash mash bowl recipe
Presenting food prettily has never been my forte. I think it stems from a belief that good food doesn’t need good presentation.

Of course, this belief is totally bogus! Some of the best restaurants in the world pay just as much attention to presentation as they do to the taste of the food. In fact my trip to Meadowood really showed me that amazing food deserves and is enhanced by amazing presentation.

Ways to Make Your Food Look Prettier

I’ve experimented with several methods of enhancing the prettiness of my food (I think it should be called food vanity):

  • buy pretty plates,
  • buy pretty place settings,
  • buy pretty cutlery,
  • decorate the plate with different garnishes.

I’m pretty bad at all of these methods, so I wanted to try a fifth method – making use of the natural beauty of the fruits and vegetables in the dish (to make the dish more colorful and to use them to hold the foods).

And so, for this amazingly delicious recipe, I used the acorn squash as both the food and the decoration. I really love the autumn colors in this dish (the dark green of the acorn squash skin, the dark yellow of the acorn squash flesh, the green of the collard greens, and the dark red of the beef bacon). In case you’re not familiar with beef bacon, there’s more on that next.
