Paleo Smoked Chicken Recipes
Smoked chicken is an easy and delicious way to incorporate meat into your diet. It is also very beneficial for your health, since it helps increase your metabolism and improve digestion.
This is especially true for those who are struggling with weak digestion. Spices such as cumin and oregano are known for their ability to enhance the activity of digestive enzymes, which can help to alleviate these symptoms and provide your body with more nutrient absorption.
1. Chicken Cordon Bleu with Bacon
Chicken Cordon Bleu is a classic French dish that is easy to make and makes for a delicious meal. It is great served with side dishes and salads.
In this recipe you will need boneless skinless chicken breasts, ham slices and cheese. Cut a slit lengthways in each chicken breast without cutting all the way through it and place a slice of ham and a piece of cheese inside each one. Fold closed and secure with a toothpick.
Dredge the breaded chicken in seasoned flour, then a mixture of egg wash and herbs before dipping it in the herb breadcrumbs. This will help the breading stick to the chicken better.
2. Hawaiian Chicken
Hawaiian Chicken is like a cross between pineapple chicken, sweet and sour chicken, and brown sugar chicken. It has a sticky, sweet sauce with delightful chunks of pineapple and peppers served over white rice.
This easy marinate-and-cook recipe is perfect for a weeknight dinner or lunch. It’s based on a popular Hawaiian dish that takes advantage of Chinese five spice powder and a whole lot of flavor.
This is a simple and quick meal that’s made up of only six ingredients. It’s also a great way to add some healthy protein and a dose of fiber to your diet.
3. Stuffed Chicken with Strawberries and Almonds
Strawberries are a great fruit to eat while Paleo because they’re packed with vitamins and antioxidants, as well as potassium and fiber. But that’s not all they have going for them – almonds are also stuffed into this recipe, adding a bit of protein and fiber to the mix while keeping things savory.
Then, a whole chicken is wrapped in bacon, which not only creates a crispy outer coating, but makes this dish a bit more hearty. This is a really easy meal, and it works well as an appetizer or side dish for a larger dinner.
4. Pork and Bacon Stuffed Chicken
Bacon is a staple ingredient in most people’s diets. It can add a rich, smoky flavor to any dish.
On the Paleo diet it is not off limits, though it may be replaced with something that fits within your eating plan. This pork and bacon stuffed chicken breast is a perfect example of how you can still enjoy the taste of this beloved ingredient while staying true to your lifestyle.
It’s a pretty simple recipe, just wrap the chicken breast completely in bacon and bake it for an hour. The result is a crisp, smoky crust that will make an awesome topping for any meal!
5. Chicken Wings
Chicken wings are one of the most popular appetizers in North America. Their versatility and affordability make them a perfect addition to any meal.
They can be cooked grilled, smoked or baked and are also excellent for adding base flavour to soups or stocks. They can be cooked sous vide (low temperature over a long time) to keep them tender and can be tossed in a range of flavours, such as chilli, herbs or citrus.
A simple rub, such as the Meat Church Honey Hog BBQ rub, can be used to enhance their flavour. You can also toss them in a variety of sauces, such as Buffalo or barbecue sauce, for an added kick of flavor.
