EASY Paleo Honey Lemon Chicken

21 Oct

I find that eating healthy, whether it is Paleo or not, is always easier when preparing meals that are a) delicious, and b) made in bulk.

I tweaked a few recipes I found online to come up with the perfect combination of flavor and ease to make this delicious crock pot honey lemon chicken. I make a big batch with about a half dozen or more chicken breasts at a time, but you can make more or less depending on your needs.


4 skinned chicken breasts
1/2 cup of lemon juice
1/4 of raw honey
1 tsp of minced garlic
Olive Oil


Cover the bottom of the crock pot in a layer of olive oil, mix the lemon juice, honey and garlic until combined. Placed breasts in the crock pot and drizzle them with the lemon and honey mixture. Cook on low heat for 3.5-5 hours.

To make sauce, remove cooked chicken from the pot and pour the remaining juice into a sauce pan. Over medium low heat, add 1 tblsp of arrowroot powder and stir regularly for 2-4 minutes. Let cool to thicken.

I usually make at least double this recipe. I find that freezing two breasts in a vacuum sealer and freezing them works great if you want to make a very large batch and have delicious healthy food ready for later!
