Paleo / Primal / Bacon / CleanEats Lifestyle
Thank you for letting me vent my “fry-er” problems. It can be tough out here for 21 days with the same 6 people tripping over each other. Tonight I managed to make a Paleo version of chicken cacciatore. Well at least I think its called chicken cacciatore. I used chicken thighs with the bone-in and skinned them. I then seared both sides in a cast-iron skillet and topped with crushed tomatoes, bell-peppers, onions, mushrooms and Italian herbs and spices. I assembled it all in a big pan, covered with foil and baked for 1 hour @400 degrees. I also roasted a spaghetti squash for 40 minutes @ 350 degrees in a pan with about an inch of water. When it was all done, it came out good. The chicken thighs retain a lot of moisture being cooked in tomato sauce and it imparts a lot of flavor. The spaghetti squash was a little al dente which was good because it mimicked pasta a little more than over-cooked spaghetti squash. It wasn’t the prettiest of meals but it was a delicious one!
