North African Roast Chicken Thighs with Raisins, Almonds, and Apricots

In this dish we see a commonly used technique for cooking with spices,
which is to add them at the saute stage and sweat them to bring out their
flavors. Serves 4 to 6 as entree

12 skinless chicken thighs (bones in)
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 small to medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size chunks
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons salt
4 cups chicken stock
2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/4 cup blanched almonds, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh red or green chile pepper of your choice

Heat the oven to 350°F. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat until hot but not
smoking; add the chicken thighs and cook, moving around every couple of
minutes, until well browned on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove and set

Add the onion slices to the saute pan and saute over medium heat, stirring
frequently, until they begin to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and
cook, stirring frequently, 1 additional minute. Add the sweet potatoes,
ginger, spices, and salt and cook, still stirring frequently, for 1 more
minute. Add the stock, reserved chicken thighs, and all the remaining
ingredients and bring to a boil.

Cover the saute pan, put it in the preheated oven, and cook until the
chicken thighs are tender and cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Season with
salt and pepper and serve.

Chicken Thighs with Lemon and Garlic

Another good recipe for chicken is to place sliced lemons and peeled garlic
cloves (lots of them) under the skin, put lemon halves and half an onion
into the cavity. Perhaps rub chicken with dried thyme. Roast the chicken.

    chopped bell peppers, and a various herbs and spices including oregano, 
    garlic, fennel, dill and salt. Onion and garlic can also be used to

Jamaican Jerk Chicken

2 tsp jerk seasoning paste
1/4 C olive oil
1/4 C arrowroot powder [makes it crispy, can be omitted]
3-4 lbs assorted chicken pieces

Mix seasoning paste with oil to make a marinade. Rub the sauce into
the chicken and marinate for a half hour (it doesn't take long).
Spread out the arrowroot powder onto a plate and lightly dredge the
marinated chicken pieces through the arrowroot. Bake or grill chicken
as desired (I bake for approx 40 minutes at 350).

Chicken Thighs with Flax Seed Coating

My kids like it when I coat chicken thighs with ground up flax seeds (whole
works also) and bake them. I usually make a coating of ground flax seed,
garlic, salt, pepper, and sometimes oregano. You can alter the herbs to your
liking. You can dip in egg first to get the coating to stick better. Bake at
350º for 20 min. turn over and cook another 20 minutes.

Chicken Thighs with Stacie's Suggestions

Along the same idea that Trish had, they can be cut into chicken fingers,
coated with ground sesame seeds, baked and dipped into a sauce of some sort.
I buy german mustard made with apple cider vinegar and mix it with "really
raw" honey, equal parts. You could also toss the chicken fingers in an
arrowroot/paprika/thyme/salt/pepper mixture, spray them with olive oil and
bake until golden. These are fabulous with the honey mustard sauce. But
arrowroot is very sticky to work with.

You can also boil them and cube them, then toss them with some arugula,
toasted walnuts, dried cherries, sliced celery and mayo (original recipe
calls for bleu cheese dressing and a handful of roquefort cheese but mayo
works fine.) Then serve this on a bed of fresh greens, with some freshly
cracked pepper.

Or, go the Thai route: chicken chunks, coconut milk, Thai curry powder, fish
sauce and fresh basil, heat it all together and serve. (Bamboo shoots too if
desired, though paleo objectionable.)

Chicken Thighs with Pesto

Chicken is also quite nice with pesto. If the skin is attached, try working
about a tablespoon of pesto in between the meat and the skin, before baking.
(Pesto is easy to make paleo; just omit the cheese.)

Slow Cooker: Without Tomatoes

The Best Whole Chicken in a Crock Pot

I've tried a ridiculous amount of crock pot recipes, and this is by far the
best (and easiest) way to slow cook a whole chicken until it is
falling-off-the bone delicious. And if you have a well-stocked spice
cabinet you'll hardly have to buy anything to make this dish.

2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne (red) pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 onion
1 large chicken

Combine the dried spices in a small bowl.

Loosely chop the onion and place it in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Remove any giblets from the chicken and then rub the spice mixture all
over. You can even put some of the spices inside the cavity and under the
skin covering the breasts.

Put prepared chicken on top of the onions in the slow cooker, cover it, and
turn it on to high. There is no need to add any liquid.

Cook for 4 - 5 hours (for a 3 or 4 pound chicken) or until the chicken is
falling off the bone.

Suggestion: Make homemade stock with the leftover bones.

- I left it on low for about 8-8.5 hours and it turned out great! My 
chicken was a little over 6 lbs.

Erik's Crockpot Chicken

One chicken (approx 1kg/a good 2 pounds)
3 limes or small lemons
1 large bell pepper/red, orange or yellow for colour
About a dozen pickled chillies (I use what in Europe is known as
"kebab-pepperoni's", they're medium-hot pepperfruits of the "Spanish
pepper"-variety. I guess you could use pickled jalapenos, but these being
too hot, I would use fewer, seed them and then make up for the lack of
green with half a green bell pepper.) Fresh champignon de Paris-mushrooms
to fill the pot up Paprika-powder/caraway-powder/black peppercorn-powder

Quart the limes and squeeze them over the chicken in the pot, then stuff
the chicken with the limes (any extras put around in the pot). Cut the
pepperfruit into thin stripes and slice the mushrooms thickly - add to the
pot with the chillies. Sprinkle the top of the chicken LIBERALLY with
paprika and caraway (about 1 tbsp each, and peppercorns to taste).

For best effect the chicken should be still half frozen (adding it's juices
to the pot), thawed just enough to allow insertion of the lime-quarts.
cook for 1h 45mins in the oven at 250 dgrs Celsius (482F).

Slowcooker Sri Lankan Chicken

5 chicken breasts
1 medium white onion, diced
1 knob of ginger, grated (about 2 tbsp)
4 thai chilis (I used two jalapenos and two serranos) - thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic
1 tbsp coriander
1 tsp turmeric
cayenne - a pinch if you like it mild up to 1/2 tbs to get it pretty fiery
1 tbsp curry powder (or 1/4 cup fresh curry leaves or 1 pandan leaf)
1 can coconut milk
2 tsp coconut oil
2 tbsp lemon juice

Get a large skillet going over medium-high heat (I am using cast iron) and
saute your onions, peppers, and garlic in 2tsp of coconut oil until the
onion starts to become translucent. Now add your spices and keep cooking
until it becomes very aromatic and gets a little bit of a toasted smell -
this will greatly enhance the flavor and strength of the spices.

Take your vegetable and spice mixture and scrape it into your slowcooker.
Pour in one can of coconut milk and your lemon juice. Mix well. Place your
chicken breasts in the mixture and ladle a bit of the sauce over the tops.

Cook on low in your slowcooker for 6 hours, or on high for 4 hours.

Spicy Lemon-Turmeric Chicken and Vegetables

1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoons turmeric
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 whole lemon
3 1/2 lb. broiler/fryer chicken, skinned and trimmed of excess fat, rinsed 
   and patted dry
1 large onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 pound carrots, chopped
2 red bell peppers, chopped
1 can (14 ounces) fire roasted crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

- In a small bowl, mix together the cumin, paprika, turmeric, cayenne pepper
and salt. Add the juice from one whole lemon (reserving the lemon rind) and
mix well.

- Using your hands, apply the spice mixture generously all over the inside
and outside of the bird. Stuff the cavity of the chicken with half of the
onions, half of the garlic and half of the cilantro.

- Place the remaining onions, garlic and cilantro in the bottom of a 5 or
6-quart slow cooker. Add the carrots, bell pepper and crushed tomatoes.
Stir in the extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt to taste. Place the
chicken on top of the vegetables. Cover and cook on low for about 7 hours
or on high for approximately 4 hours, or until the meat pulls easily away
from the bones. Serve warm.
