Paleo Lime Chicken Salad

My kids requested tacos tonight, which is a great meal to be able to serve up to suit my paleo palate as well. Sometimes I go for lettuce tacos, but tonight I was craving a big salad. I ate my lime chicken on tops of a bed of greens and other good stuff.


I modified a recipe I found on AllRecipes.com, doubling the sauce so I would have enough with which to dress my salad. I also added a little moisture by including some Trader Joe's salsa verde. As written this recipe has no real kick (as I was cooking for the kids), so the hot salsa definitely added a little something.

Paleo Lime Chicken Salad
adapted from AllRecipes.com

1 lb. cubed chicken breast
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 juiced limes
1 tsp. stevia or other natural sweetener (could omit)
salt & pepper, to taste
4 minced green onions
4 minced garlic cloves
2 tsp. minced fresh cilantro
choice of salad fixings (I went with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado & salsa)

Saute chicken in a large skillet over medium heat, until no longer pink. Add vinegar through cilantro and stir to thoroughly coat chicken. Lower heat and simmer for another 10 minutes.

  2. I'm glad you've like my recipes! Hmmm, yes I think you might risk being bludgeoned by cave people with the words "whole wheat" in your blog title! Just kidding ;)

    seriously, though, good luck and best wishes exploring paleo a little more. I am probably not as strict as many, but I am a foodie at heart so I hope to at least provide inspiring recipes to try!
