  1. You have made my change to Paleo so much more fun and easy with these great recipes. This one is a favorite! 1. It tastes amazing 2. It uses no crazy long list of ingredients and 3. Its so quick to put together!

    Thank you!

  2. 5 minute prep time. :-/ seriously? I’m not a chef, but I’m pretty good with a kitchen, and I can’t do this in less than half an hour. Just getting everything prepped for cooking, as in taking it out, cleaning it, and setting it on the counter takes 5 minutes.

    1. Sorry Brian, when I typed this I used to prepared stuff from Trader Joes but I now dice all my vegetables the second I buy them and keep them in the fridge or freezer ready to go to make meals a snap

  3. George – Love this crazy-easy recipe! But I barely got any of it because my 3 & 4 year old children devoured 95% of the entire chicken by themselves!! Next time will have to do 2 at a time, I guess. Thanks for another stress-free and delicious dinner.

  4. hi, my son is totally convinced that this is going to be his lifestyle and so am I for myself, now that I read/learn about paleo. This is a very practical website with straight recipes. This chicken must be on HIGH for 6 hours without any liquid or on low? thank you

  5. This was great!! I was looking for healthy crock pot meals but they all use canned soup! Eek! So happy to have found your blog! Can’t wait to try more!!
