Paleo: Chicken & Veggie Packets

It has been a crazy busy week – wow! On Tuesday, I had a job interview, and on Wednesday I started my first day of work.  I’m no longer a full-time homemaker. Now I’m a homemaker and a working gal. I also decided to start the Paleo diet on Wednesday – I’m not sure how smart it is to start a new lifestyle change on the same week you start working, but so far it has been totally worth the extra effort.  I’ll talk more about why I’m doing this later, but for now, I’d like to share with you a simple and delicious Paleo dinner.

For this recipe you will need the following:

  • 1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • baby carrots
  • sliced mushrooms
  • 1 sweet yellow onion
  • salt
  • pepper
  • thyme
  • aluminum foil (4 squares)
  • a mallet (to pound the chicken)

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Flatten 4 chicken breasts using a mallet to 1/2 inch thickness

Step 2: Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper and just a little bit of thyme.

Step 3: Chop onion and pepper (fajita-style) and place on top of chicken

Step 4: Throw on sliced mushrooms and baby carrots and add more salt, pepper, and thyme over everything.

Step 5: Wrap the foil and place on baking sheet to cook for 20 minutes or until juices run clear and the chicken is cooked through

Step 6: You can also throw this all together and save in the refrigerator for a few hours if need be.  I did this for my husband so that he could have a freshly cooked meal instead of leftovers. (He doesn’t get off of work until late and now that I have to be up early for work, I have to go to bed way before he gets home.)

Step 7: ENJOY!

I hope that you enjoy and if you are also doing a Paleo diet, leave me a comment and let me know why you are doing it.
