Spicy roasted chicken. Done right.

I think I just made my best roasted chicken to date. It’s crispy on the outside and fall off the bone tender on the inside. What’s the secret? Sticking a whole lemon in the body of the bird. This one takes the cake.

Paleo Chicken Fajitas anyone?

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I was craving some Mexican food tonight and happened to have everything needed to whip up some Paleo Styled Chicken fajitas. All you need is some ground meat of choice, fresh bell peppers and onions, lettuce for the wrapping, tomato and avocado.

The Deets:
I sautéed the chicken with a hearty amount of chili powder, garlic powder and onion powder.  In a separate pan I then sautéed the onion, red, green, and yellow peppers. 1 of each. Adding a bit of the spice mix to the veggie mix as well. While that was cooking, I mashed up an avocado with fresh squeezed lemon and sliced some tomato to add a fresh flavour to the final product. Wash some lettuce of choice, I used red leaf, and once the veggies are cooked to your liking, you’re all set. I’m big on the spice so I added a spoon of crushed chilies to the mix as well. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.

Hope you enjoy!
