Let’s face it, it’s way too easy to slip into the habit of cooking and eating the same meals every week.

With that in mind, it’s time to try something new and exciting.
Following a Paleo diet doesn’t have to be boring, instead, it can be full of unique flavors and interesting combinations, even when we use basic ingredients.
Something as simple as chicken can be used to make the most amazing paleo dishes.
Today, we want to show you just how much you can do with a versatile ingredient like chicken.

However, the recipe calls for onions, garlic, and cashew nuts.

It’s a great dish the whole family can share.
