Paleo Chicken Bowl (Whole30, GF + Dairy-Free)

Do you have a thing for sauces?! I do, but I didn’t realize it until Justin created the five minute roasted pepper sauce used in this Paleo chicken bowl. Don’t you remember it? We posted about it last week, and I seriously cannot get enough of this sauce! It is so good! This whole meal is delicious! The highlights are that there are only eight ingredients and you can prepare it in less than 30 minutes. Plus, it is great for leftovers and lunches, too! BOOYA! (As Justin would say!)

Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados
  • 12 oz jar of roasted peppers - drained
  • 2 cloves garlic - peeled
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion - peeled and diced
  • 2 cups mushrooms - sliced
  • 6 cups greens (spinach, kale, etc.)
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions 

  • First make roasted pepper sauce by placing 1 avocado, the peppers, garlic cloves and a pinch of salt and pepper into a food processor. Blend until smooth and place in refrigerator to chill.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add avocado oil. Once hot, add chicken to cook, about 4-5 minutes per side.
  • While the chicken is cooking, cut up onion, mushrooms, and greens.
  • Once the chicken is cooked through, remove from skillet and place on a cooking board to rest.
  • Add onion to skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently until onions begin to soften. Add mushrooms and cook until they start to soften, another 2-3 minutes. Add greens and cook until they begin to wilt, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Slice chicken into bite-sized pieces and mix with veggies.
  • Serve in bowls and top each bowl with 1/2 avocado and a generous amount of roasted pepper sauce.

  • This recipe is amazing!! I used leftover turkey from Thanksgiving but kept everything else the same. The red pepper sauce is incredibly flavorful. Thanks for sharing these wonderful recipes!

  • I am thinking about starting the paleo diet, I am a bit nervous though, bc this girl LOVES her pasta and bread! Lol however, I think I am MOST concerned about the cost, as my hubs really HATES veggies except your everyday corn and green beans, plus my son isn’t willing to give up HIS carbs either, I wonder if anyone is in my shoes? Desperately needing advice on this, preparing 2-3 different meals everyday isn’t an option when you are on a TIGHT budget! Btw this looks AMAZING! Thanks in advance for any and all help

    • Hey there! I wonder if you might find that you can cook paleo friendly meals for everyone and just add some grains/starch for your hubby and kid as needed. We have some meal plan clients who do that and find that it makes cooking for their family easier and more manageable. Many people who try out our meal plans say that they were expecting eating paleo to be less flavorful, but feel like they actually eat more flavorfully than before! You’re welcome to email us at support(at)realsimplegood(dot)com to chat more. In addition, here’s a link to our meal plans for more info on those!

  • How long can the roasted red pepper sauce be stored in the refrigerator? I’m concerned about the avocado making the sauce turn brown or unappealing.

  • I made this for my VERY FIRST whole30 dinner. I loved the sauce and added pistachios for some crunch. It’s a perfect meal to make ahead and have in the fridge if you don’t feel like cooking. Will definitely make it again!

  • This is our first Whole30. This Chicken Bowl recipe quickly became a favourite! Easy to make and delicious!! This recipe is a keeper!!! Thank you.
