Paleo diet recipes like Paleo Crock Pot Chicken Thigh Dinner

We all need easy paleo recipes. We need real foods that taste good and give us the health to fuel our WODs and all the other parts of our lives. This is one of those really delicious crock pot meals. I prepped it at night and put it into the refrigerator until the next morning. How easy was that?

Now, if that's not enough to convince you, it's economical. Natural Chicken thighs are very affordable. You have to try this for yourself.

I rubbed 2 TBSP coconut oil in my crock pot.
I peeled maybe 8-10 organic carrots and cut them in in big pieces and placed them into the crock pot.
I placed a large package of chicken thighs into the crock pot.
I cut 2 small red onions into large chunks and put them on top of the chicken.
I poured 1/2 cup chicken stock into the crock pot.
I poured 1 can of organic coconut milk into the pot. (I didn't stir. The coconut milk was partly thick, partly thin, of course, but that's not going to matter after it cooks all day)
I added 1 tsp Cherry Wood Smoked sea salt, ( freshly ground black pepper, 1/2 tsp rosemary, and 1/2 tsp basil.

I left the crock pot on low 8+  hours. (4 hours on high would work, too)

This smelled so good when we all got home! Chicken thighs don't get dry like chicken breasts sometimes do in the crock pot, too.

Hey, I need to tweak this one for the Instant Pot. (my Instant Pot recipes are over on ) There's also a site I've used where you can find Instant Pot recipes easily - check it out! They have some great categories like Instant Pot, Vegetarian, Breakfast, and Easy Dinners to name a few!

My kids, my family, my coaches - what they eat really makes a huge difference!
