A little background: As you can tell from my name I have fibromyalgia. For a time I was vegetarian, then vegan, then lacto-ovo pescetarian, and then finally eating chicken in someone else's home made me realize how good plain old meat made... (more)
I baked a chicken thigh (~1lbs) for 40 mins @ 350?? and it was too raw... what are the correct settings?
If baked in close quarters; small / deep dish time will need to be longer than if in a shallower dish...... but in any case 40 minutes is pretty short. check out this link... http://bit.ly/I70DmW
I'm only able to get my hands on Tyson's "All Natural" (whatever that means) chicken livers, both due to price and simple availability. Are chicken livers (regardless of their quality) any better or worse than other types of animal livers? Are... (more)
Luckily, at my local grocery I have access to pastured eggs, grassfed beef, and wild caught fish. Only thing I really can't get is pastured chicken. From my understanding the issue with grain or soy feed chickens is their omega ratio. Considering... (more)
Why exactly is beef liver often preferred over chicken liver? What advantages does it have?From what I can see, chicken liver is a more balanced nutritional powerhouse than beef liver. It has much less retinol and B12 while still providing... (more)

Top right looks like the heart. Left side looks like the gizzards. Bottom right looks like just fat.
Hey, I cook chicken nearly every day. It would make sense that it's the healthiest tastiest chicken I can eat. So I have a question for you: You only have 15 minutes to cook a chicken breast, what would you cook it in,... (more)
I have made gizzards differently multiple times and have enjoyed them each time, but I was wondering what other people do when they cook theirs. Just looking for new recipes is all. Thanks!
I have made a chicken curry from a couple different Paleo recipes and they always have so much liquid left over. Normally I would use rice with my curry dish but since that isn't really ideal option what else could I use?
I was previously a vegetarian for about 8 years and switched to the paleo diet about 2 years ago (so thankful for the change!). However, the majoirty of my meat intake consists of grass-fed turkey and chicken. The turkey has a considerable... (more)
I just want to make it clear that this is not really an important question, and I am not agonising over it! I'm just curious. In terms of meat (I also eat eggs and oily fish such as sprats and sardines), I eat lamb, goat and beef. I vary... (more)
No, chicken doesn't really offer anything unique, unlike fish (omega-3s), beef (iron and zinc), and pork (thiamine).
The pastured local chicken I can buy tends to be offered as the whole bird. I always have a lot of left over chicken--over half of it. I don't mind eating it as a left over later, but it's just too much food for my small frame to go through in a... (more)
I'm probably going to get hammered for this question but is Tyson's no hormones no antibiotics chicken healthy? This is a major conglomerate and that usually means deceptive advertising.
Hi I'm really new to this and I was wondering if anyone knows if the macro brand chicken sold at countdown in nz is paleo? It says its organic pasture fed ...... Here is a link to all I could find on... (more)
I like to eat some chicken liver pate everyday, it always boots my energy levels & I just love the stuff, i go for chicken as its tastier than beef or lamb liver but still high in nutrients, im getting between 6628.4IU & 13256.7IU vitamin... (more)
Hi all, A fairly open ended question here. When I'm not eating fish, eggs and the odd bit of bacon here and there I'm consuming grass-fed beef as my primary protein source. In what situations would pastured chicken be a better option, assuming... (more)
Made a batch the other day and I actually like them! Its great how they are bite sized too. I just don't know the best method or temp to reheat the chicken hearts now? They are also on skewers if that make any difference.
Hi, I have eaten Bell and Evans chicken for a long time as I thought it was better and more natural than buying regular grain fed. They have this on their packaging: All Vegetable Diet Raised Without Antibiotics No Animal By-Products No Growth... (more)
The skin is my favorite part of eating chicken no doubt about it. But some recipes instruct you to "remove excess fat and skin" Is this for a genuine culinary purpose, does it cook differently in some recipes if its not skinless chicken? Or more... (more)
If it's grocery store conventional chicken, yes, ditch that sh**. If it's a good free-range chicken that you know has been running around eating bugs and grass? Eat the skin. Good source of selenium.
Hello all, Ive been at this for a month so far and i love it... I was just wondering if us Paleo folk have yet found a stable source of meat from any larger reputable meat suppliers? Or do you all try to to get grass-fed organic meats locally? I... (more)
I am kind of curious about this. I am hardly the most knowledgeable person when it comes to meat but I have never come across anything with that texture? Could it technically not be "paleo" if we cannot eat it raw? edit Wow these are some... (more)
Anyone have a good recipe for a curried chicken salad? I love the one at Trader Joes....ingredients are -Grilled Chicken Breast (water, isolated soy protein, salt) -Curry Dressing (mayo from soybean oil, whole egg, cider vinegar, egg yolk,... (more)
I'd prefer to have it cooked within a few hours tonight. I'm stocked on all the basic spices/vegetables. I have an oven and slow cooker at my disposal. I can cook it tomorrow if I use the slow cooker bc it has a timer. What do I do?! Regarding... (more)
Brine it! I work in a meat department at an unmentionable health food store. I recommend to each customer that asks me this to make a simple brine, and let that bird become a Bird in a salty spa over night. Google a simple brine recipe, follow it,... (more)
