Paleo Crock Pot Chicken and Onions


My "Paleo Crock Pot Chicken Breasts" gets lots of hits on here, and people are so busy, so I decided to do another recipe along those lines. Another reason this recipe came to be is that Ger is on an ONION KICK. He's right - they are delicious and SO good for you in so many ways. So, here's what Jessica did:

She rubbed the crock pot with coconut oil. (We love tropicaltraditions.com best.) She rinsed a big package of antibiotic-free chicken breasts and put them in.

She cut 5 organic, sweet yellow onions into large pieces and laid them on top of the chicken.
She poured in 2/3 cup of Basic Chicken Stock. (This brand doesn't have a bunch of stupid ingredients that you shouldn't ever eat....)
The spices went in last. She used 1 TBSP garlic powder, 1 TBSP smoked paprika, and 2 tsp ground mustard. A little sea salt and freshly ground pepper finished things up!   She DID NOT STIR IT.
She put it on low all day.

I took a package of frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots out of the freezer and microwaved according to directions. (I never microwave anything now.... fresh is best and microwaves may be very unhealthy for us..... have you read about that?)  While waiting for that, I wilted a huge container of organic baby spinach in a skillet with a little coconut oil. I stirred in the vegetables and sprinkled 3 TBSP of pine nuts on the top. Smoked Sea Salt from Salt Traders was all it needed.

Delicious Paleo Dinner! (in record time)
