Paleo Recipes and Real Life Adventures

Italian dinner gone Primal

  • Monday I swam 1 mile and ran 3 miles.
  • Tuesday I biked 11 miles
  • Tonight I ran 3 miles, did 33 laps in the pool, 30 min walk with the dogs…

   My body is tired. I think I will take the day off tomorrow! I am actually physically exhausted, I couldn’t finish my swim tonight because my goggles were fogging up and leaking but rather than pushing through I just stopped and sat on the side waiting for Brandon to finish swimming his 2 miles. UgH! Sometimes we just need to relax and take a rest. Now I am eating some almonds and sitting on my couch in silence. It is WONDERFUL!


   Tonight dinner was: Look, my hot oregano is thriving in my garden, what can I make with it? Italian dinner!

Baked Italian Chicken
Preheat oven to 350 degrees


Ingredients:

4 Chicken breasts
1 1/2 Cups Almond Flour/meal (non paleo use Panko Bread Crumbs)
1 Tbs Sea Salt
3 Tsp Garlic
1 Tbs Italian Seasonings (I used Oregano and Basil)
1 Tbs Fresh Hot Oregano, diced
1 Cup Pasta Sauce (I use Classico Spicy Tomato Basil because it has no sugar added)
*Optional: Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, 4 thin slices



Process:
    1. Bake Chicken on a lightly greased pan for 20 minutes.
    2. While Chicken is baking, mix the flour, seasonings and herbs together on a plate. This amount will cover 4 large Chicken breasts.
    3. After 20 minutes, remove chicken and pat each one with the crumb mixture.
    4. Bake in the oven for another 20-30 minutes. Bread crumbs should start to brown a little.
    5. Remove Chicken and top with pasta sauce and Cheese.
  1. Place back in the oven  for about 6-10 minutes until cheese melts.
  2. Serve with your favorite Italian side- spaghetti squash, a big salad or roasted veggies with garlic and butter.  (non- paleo, pasta noodles would be delicious with this)
  3. Enjoy!
