Paleo Chicken with Black Pepper Cream

chix 2

If you are really short on time, this is a fast but tasty recipe. There is very little faffing around and the taste is quite delicious. I wouldn’t send a recipe your way that wasn’t scrumbalicious, but this one is a 9/10. The only thing that would make it a 10/10 would be to have naan bread with it. I love it but it doesn’t like me. So if you eat gluten, have a big bite for me!

Serve with a big fresh salad or rice if that is in your diet. Here is another lovely one pot chicken recipe, Easy Lemon Chicken with Artichokes.
