I love Chinese food but eating healthy and Chinese food don’t always go together. I’ve posted a couple of great paleo Chinese dishes like my paleo orange chickenandpaleo faux fried ricewhich I make on a regular basis so this dish will feel right at home.
I found this great recipe, made a few minor tweaks, grabbed some butter lettuce and I was a happy Bunny. Nommy nom nom.
Even better was that the main cooking time of this dish goes on in the slow cooker but it’s the quickest slow cooker recipe I’ve made. What sped it up was the few minutes of sauteing the chicken. A few minutes saved a few hours in the slow cooker so that was cool.
My hubby is usually my taste tester and I knew he loved this recipe because after he had eaten this 2 times he asked if there was any more left. The first time he had it he ate it warmed but then he started eating it on organic pita bread cold like it was a fancy chicken salad.
I was struttin’ around the kitchen like a friggin’ peacock after making this recipe because it was so good. I mean really good and it just happens to be paleo which is even better. Delicious, low-carb, protein AND paleo!
This recipe has a medium to medium-hot amount of heat. It’s absolutely the perfect amount of heat for me but then I like a good amount of spice. I use and love this red pepper seasoned rice vinegarthat really gives it a good kick but if spicy isn’t your thing, I recommend using regular rice vinegar. That will help cut the heat in half.
I shared this with the hubby and before I could ask how much he liked it, it was gone. Like GONE GONE. All he could do is nod yes vigorously while he was still chewing his last bite. Needless to say, he loved it.
I think one of my favorite flavor combinations has to be sweet and spicy. I love to snack on nuts but sometimes they can get a little boring. I bought a bag of cashews at Whole Foods recently and was just waiting for the perfect recipe.
In my search I stumbled on this recipe from PaleOMG. I tweaked the recipe slightly and they turned out perfect.
These are a quick snack to whip up for a party or even to give as a gift.
