Paleo Chicken and Poultry Recipes

Chicken and Turkey at its best is organic, pasture raised and local. How do we love it? Let’s count the ways: baked, broiled, grilled, roasted, sautéed, slow cooked, and stir fried and we’ve got recipes to cover it all! Chicken is versatile, delicious, mild, and “goes with anything.” It can be dressed up in exotic flavors and spices or dressed down with hardly any seasoning and still taste great.
