Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with butter.
  2. Cut chickens into wings, drumsticks, thighs, and breast portions. Split breasts down the middle and debone the 4 breast halves. Pound breasts to about 1/4-inch thickness. Place chicken drumsticks, thighs, and wings into prepared baking dish in a single layer, placing chicken pieces as close together as possible. Layer ham, then Swiss cheese over the chicken legs, thighs, and wings. Lay the breasts on top.
  3. Mix together almond meal and olive oil in a bowl until crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over top of breasts.
  4. Bake in oven until a thermometer reads 165 degrees F (75 degrees C) in the center of the the thickest part of a thigh, about 1 hour.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This will have bones, but the taste is great. Remember that this, being primal, doesn't have as much of the salt or processing and might taste a little blander than usual. You can add 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt if you find it not salty enough.

I admit to modifying this recipe to be a bit more paleo friendly. I used packaged chicken breast (boneless skinless organic from Costco) and substituted the butter for coconut oil (a lot like crisco, it is solid at room temp and handles heat very well) I also left out the cheese (dairy is not paleo) pounded the breasts out, and layered ham in between the two layers of chicken (added in spinach too for a nice touch) topped with the crumbles and baked until the chicken was cooked through. Served a family of 3 with no leftovers and no guilt! Paired it with mashed cauliflower or steamed veg. Great dinner or even lunch! It's great cold too (if you have any leftovers ;-)
