I found my inspiration for tonight’s dinner at nomnompaleo.com. What a great place to start. I followed her directions and cooked the chicken on low for 4 hours (I had a relatively small chicken). It was perfect! She is a paleo genius!
- 4 lb. free range chicken (shout out to US Wellness Meats for their great bird @ $26)
- 2 T Organic Ghee (@$1 at Amazon)
- 2 Organic Onion – chopped (@$1 from Meijer)
- 6 cloves Garlic – diced
- 1 teaspoon Tomato Paste
- 1/2 cup Organic Chicken Broth (@$1 from Costco)
- Sunny Paris Seasoning
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Saute onions and garlic and tomato paste in ghee until lightly browned. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour in chicken stock and deglaze pan. Transfer this mixture to the slow cooker. Dry off the chicken, and season (inside and out) with your favorite poultry seasoning. Place the chicken BREAST SIDE DOWN in the slow cooker. Cover and set to cook on LOW FOR 4-6 HOURS.
When the chicken is finished cooking, take it out of the slow cooker and let it rest for 20 minutes. Use an immersion blender to make a delicious gravy from the remaining veggies and broth.
I should warn you …. Use this gravy with caution – it is amazingly addictive!
Serve 6 people at approx $5 per serving.
I served this with organic broccoli, sautéed in ghee and simply seasoned with salt which may add another $1 per serving.
