Cooler nights and shorter days call for comfort food. We contend that, contrary to popular belief, hearty can still be healthy—especially when it comes to these five clean-eating, deliciously simple chicken recipes.
As comforting as they are nourishing, these poultry dishes were developed by a dietitian to celebrate fall flavors and produce, all while being allergen free (no gluten, dairy, wheat or soy) and paleo friendly (free of grains and refined sugar) to boot.
A thick and creamy caramelized fig balsamic dressing is the perfect complement to hearty kale. It makes simple grilled chicken breasts feel wildly fancy when paired with toasted walnuts and roasted butternut squash. It’s a substantial salad that satisfies without feeling heavy. You can substitute any nuts or seeds for the ones listed.
This healthier, homemade version of a classic Chinese takeout meal (no sugar or gluten here!) is bright and zesty, thanks to vibrant, refreshing winter citrus and warming ginger. Best of all, it comes together even quicker than delivery: less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
One of India’s well-known and most-beloved chicken dishes gets a paleo-friendly makeover, using coconut milk and cream for richness in lieu of butter and cream. It’s full of complex flavors and warming spices like ginger, garam masala and curry.
A far cry from the overly sweet honey-mustard chicken recipes in your past, this updated take on a classic features a tangy, homemade, whole-grain honey-mustard glaze with fresh herbs and bright lemon juice, plus a crunchy, paleo cracker crust for added texture.
Make this a vegetarian recipe by leaving most of the sweet potato intact, omitting the bacon (use olive oil to sauté red onion), and topping with a few fried or soft-boiled eggs or a mild, crumbled cheese of your choice (such as goat’s or sheep’s milk).
