Hi Paleo Newbies! It’s still a great time of year to be grilling here in Arizona. Of course, when things really start to heat up later this summer, you can just put the food on the grill and not bother to light it. (OK, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration.) But right now is the perfect time to pass along some of the cooking duties to my hubby without him risking a heat stroke. I’m never happier than when all I have to do is prep the food and hubby throws it on the Weber. Done. Works out great for me!
I have been thinking a lot about recipes lately. It’s never been my intention for Paleo Newbie to be just a recipe site, but being new to the blogosphere, giving visitors a wide variety of Paleo recipes seems to be where I’m lacking. Healthy, quick and easy Paleo recipes are the most requested feature of the site – so I’m here to please. I’ll get more yummy Paleo meals up as fast as I can.
One of my favorite glaze recipes is a super easy maple and mustard blend. It might sound a little weird to you, but trust me its awesome. I’ve used it on chicken and salmon and it never fails to please. By the way, if you’re not buying free-range organic chicken, you need to try it. You will finally learn what real chicken tastes like. It is so tender and juicy you will wonder whats going on with regular store-bought chicken. And let’s face it, we both know its not that good for you.
So I was thinking…what goes well with maple? Duh. Bacon. I decided grilled bacon-wrapped asparagus (link to our recipe) would be great with the maple glazed chicken. I don’t know why I never made them together before, but once we cooked this delightful combo up, I knew it was a winner! If you’re new to Paleo and have kids, I’m pretty sure the little ones will love this one too!
Try it and let me know if you agree! :)
