Paleo Chicken Piccata - chicken thighs with a delicious lemon and caper sauce, served over spaghetti squash. You're going to love this healthier version of the classic!

This Paleo Chicken Piccata recipe was originally published on Food Fanatic which is why I’m talking about spring like it’s not the middle of April. This recipe is a year round favorite though so add it to your dinner rotation soon!

We are all ready for spring now, right?

I’m so done with the heavy stews and slow cooker meals, and I’m ready for light and fresh. Chicken piccata is one of my favorite spring time meals – it just screams spring.

Fresh lemon juice and so much green on top? Definitely the kind of meal to transition to spring with.

This paleo version is so close to the original. The only thing you really have to remove is the butter and wine.

So, coconut oil instead of the butter – and if you enjoy ghee in your diet, I highly recommend using that, but the coconut oil is just as delicious. In place of the wine, I used full fat coconut milk which also adds a little richness and creaminess that you may miss since you’re skipping the butter.

Make sure you get a canned coconut milk that’s only ingredients are coconut milk, water, and guar gum.

And it will probably be separated when you open it, so I usually just quickly throw it in the blender to get everything combined.

Bacon Spinach Feta Chicken - low carb and keto recipe! Crispy chicken thighs in a delicious feta sauce with bacon and spinach! 30 minute meal, perfect for weeknights!

I’m going to start this post by saying that my 6 and 8 year olds ate zucchini noodles for the first time because of this chicken.

Like, pulled it out of the fridge and asked if they could have it. For their after bath, pre-bedtime snack.

Yeah.

That sauce will change your life. Or at least change your opinion of zucchini noodles.

I mean, it’s got butter, heavy cream, and two kinds of cheeses so how can it not be delicious?!

Barbecue Chicken Pizza – a delicious and easy recipe for pizza night! Barbecue sauce, chicken, bacon, pineapple, and red onion layered with colby jack cheese!

Hi, hello, I sliced a portion of my finger off making this pizza yesterday.

I came very close to quitting cooking forever because that was beyond traumatizing. I’ve never cut myself while cooking. Sure, I’ve accidentally grated my thumb on the cheese grater because haven’t we all? But to just slice off some of your finger?

No.

No.

No.

If you never see bacon on this blog again, remember this post.

Hi guys.

Should we talk about resolutions? I love a new year and a fresh start and setting up intentions and goals. My current resolution list is just a bunch of tiny things that take up 3 pages of a google doc. They’re mostly like “Quit being super cheap and spend the $15 a month on Audible because you love listening to books while you cook”. Nothing life changing. Just little things that I hope will ultimately add up to make be a better person, better mom, better business woman over time.

I also tend to start eating healthier and cleaner but I think it’s more just getting back to normal. Because from Halloween to New Years, we all indulge a little more than usual, right? It’s less a resolution and more just getting back to what we were doing before we had bags and bags of tiny candy bars in our house at all times.  Click for the full recipe

Okay, so, funny story.

Back in the summer, I did an Instagram post for this same pasta, my favorite pasta ever, Skinner® Texas Shape pasta and I have been obsessed with it ever since.

If I invite you over for spaghetti and meatballs, what I mean is Skinner Texas Shape pasta and meatballs. Baked ziti? Baked Skinner Texas Shape pasta. Macaroni and Cheese? Okay, you get it.

But yeah, I’d literally bought a bag of this pasta the day I got the cutest package from Skinner for this post (thanks for sponsoring!). I Instagram story’d it but I guess I didn’t screenshot it, which probably means you should follow me over there to keep up with all my Texas-shaped pasta dishes.
