Chicken with Rosemary and Mushroom Glaze

Rosemary Chicken paleo whole30 (
We had the Chicken with Rosemary and Mushroom Glaze for dinner and below is the recipe reprinted with permission from Neely Quinn, the author or the 21 Day Paleo Cleanse e-book. I used ghee instead of the coconut oil to make it yummier. Another one skillet meal that requires minimal prep work and leftovers are always awesome for lunch the next day!

    This recipe looks delicious AND it fits the paleo autoimmune protocol. So, thank you! I just started a weekly Paleo AIP Recipe Roundtable through my blog, and I would love it if you linked up this recipe. I’m trying to expand resources for the AIP community.

    I’m confused by the ingredient list….. 2 what of mushrooms?

    Also, why would you want to cook the garlic when the pan is hot? It just burns and turns bitter. Much better to let it and the rosemary meld together at a low temperature for a longer time.

      2 cups of mushrooms, sorry typo. The recipe is not mine so I did not alter the instructions when I posted it. This recipe is flexible so you can cook the garlic and rosemary to your desired temperature preference.

    Uh…yeh…this was so simple and yet so amazing. Two thumbs up from all of the family members. I will be making this again for sure. I paired it with some steamed asparagus with grated lemon peel and roasted carrots with thyme and shallots. My oh my good. Thanks for the recipe.

    The picture of the chicken looks like small bits of chicken thighs not whole thighs. Do you use them whole or in bits?

    if you take your pieces of chicken and coat them with baking soda and let them set for 15 minutes then rinse them off under warm water and pat dry then your chicken will be so much moisture and you will be amazed
