These are my best ever Paleo chicken recipes that are fun and easy to make for any meal anytime, anywhere. Now you have to decide which one you are going to choose. Chicken has always been a staple food in my home; It seems like I’m always cooking some type of chicken.
I have been more or less following the Paleo diet for over 10 years now and I have eaten so much chicken in that amount of time, I think I may just grow chicken wings one of these days. 🙂
Seriously though, I got so, so sick of chicken – so I set out on a mission to find a variety of recipes for myself and to share with you. I have also tried out many of these recipes on my four children and husband because they always complain that I make chicken too much and they get even more tired of chicken than I do.
I love chicken breasts because they are a good, healthy way to get some protein into my diet. There are so many Paleo recipes with chicken out there. But I tend to think that these are some of the best.
There are so many different to choose from. However, when I started incorporating Paleo recipes into my diet, it was hard to find a good recipe. The hardest part was finding a recipe that did not have soy sauce in the marinade and was truly Paleo.
I was able to find all of these recipes that I can now rotate through my regular menu. I am very pleased with the list, especially since I have a variety of recipes now so that I don’t get tired of eating the same recipes over and over.
When you are on the Paleo diet, make sure you use organic, pasture-raised chicken. Guess what? As a bonus, “real” chicken tastes so much better than regular chicken. It’s just too bad that it’s so expensive. One way I have found to buy it more affordable is to buy it in bulk online at US Wellness Meats .
I hope you love these recipes; they all look so yummy. Try them and let us know which you like the best.

These chicken tenders are a cross between coconut shrimp and chicken nuggets. So you end up with coconut-crusted chicken tenders.

3. Chicken Nuggets – The Domestic Man
Pickle Juice – Arrowroot Starch – Coconut Oil – Paprika – Chicken Breasts
If you like a more spongy breading around your nuggets rather than a thin coating, these are for you. He uses a method of breading called reserve battering. If you want to learn how to do it, then you can read all about it on his blog. The other interesting thing he does is use tapioca starch or arrowroot starch instead of flour or breadcrumbs.
4. Chick-fil-A Nuggets – The Domestic Man
Pickle Juice – Coconut Milk – Tapioca Starch – Chicken Breasts – Paprika – Coconut Oil
These use pickle juice as a marinade. If you’re strict Paleo look for a compliant brand of pickles such as Bubbies. You can either fry these or bake them in the oven. There are instructions for both methods. The baked ones won’t be as crispy but will have less fat, but hey, it’s healthy fat.

They are just lemons preserved like cucumbers are preserved and turned into pickles.
