Over the weekend J discovered a fantastic resource for recipes: Paleo Leap. I’m super stoked for their app to come out soon as well! While I really enjoy putting together some of my own creations in the kitchen, it’s also great to try out some of the tasty recipes we find on the web. Here is our experience with this paleo-friendly slice of Italy!

  9. Transfer the chicken back to the pan.
  10. Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  11. Return the mushrooms to the pan, combine well, adjust the seasoning if needed, and serve.IMG_0773.JPG

We chose to serve this over quinoa but it would also be great over cooked spiralized zucchini! Delish!
