Being the fan of Mexican Cuisine that I am, I find this dish (which can easily be converted into carne asada by swapping chicken for grass fed skirt steak), a perfect example of an easy-to-Paleoize meal.
  • 4 free-range chicken breasts (buy bone in/skin on and save for stocks or soups)
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 small lime, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, or more if desired
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded
  1. Use a meat tenderizer tool to pound chicken breasts flat.
  2. Combine next seven ingredients in mini prep food processor.
  3. Whiz to combine.
  4. Pour mixture over chicken and marinate 4 - 6 hours, tightly covered, in the fridge.
  5. Cook outdoors on a hot grill or indoors under the broiler until internal temp = 160F.
  6. Let stand on wire racks for a few minutes before plating.
  7. Serve on top of a bed of your favorite leafy greens with a general portion of avocado.
