What I Loved About About The Recipe:

I can totally see why this dish is popular in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China. It’s very quick to prep and cook, and while it has very few ingredients, it tastes fabulous! It can also be made without the shrimp for a simple silky egg and tomato stir fry. This simple stir fry tastes great served over cauliflower rice sautéed in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper for a satisfying low carb meal.

This dish is very popular in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China because it's very quick to prep and cook and tastes delicious! It can also be made without the shrimp for a simple silky egg and tomato stir fry. I love this recipe served over cauliflower rice sautéed in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Course: dinner
Keyword: easy dinner recipe, eggs benedict, Paleo, shrimp, stir fry, whole30
Ingredients
  • 12 medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (about a 1/2 pound)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon course sea salt, plus a pinch
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 5-6 tablespoons chopped scallions
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot starch (a grain free substitute for corn starch)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
  • 2 medium, firm tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • toasted sesame oil, for serving
  • Optional: serve over cauliflower rice cooked in olive oil with sea salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Blanche shrimp in boiling water until they turn pink and begin to curl, scoop them out, drain and set aside. (this will happen very quickly!)

  2. Place eggs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, white pepper, and 2 tablespoons chopped scallions in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the arrowroot starch with a little less than 1 tablespoon water and add to the egg mixture and gently whisk. Add the shrimp to egg mixture.

  3. Heat a skillet on med/high heat. Add 1 tablespoon ghee and lower heat to medium. Add the shrimp and egg mixture. Gently stir fry until eggs are about 70 percent cooked, similar to soft, runny, scrambled eggs. Scoop the mixture out of the pan and set aside

  4. Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon ghee to skillet, then add remaining 3-4 tablespoons scallions, the chopped tomatoes, and the tomato paste. Season with a small pinch of sea salt. Saute for 10 seconds, add eggs and shrimp back to pan and give a quick toss, about five seconds

  5. Serve over hot cauliflower rice, drizzle with toasted sesame oil, garnish with more scallions as desired.

A two-olive tapenade brings richness to smoky paprika-rubbed chicken breasts, served with one of our favorite spring vegetables, asparagus. Colorful, light and flavorful this meal will surely be a seasonal favorite! If you can't find boneless skin on chicken breasts, no worries. You'll follow the directions in bold below and cook a little longer.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Mediterranean
Keyword: chicken, chicken dinner, keto, Paleo, whole30
Servings: 2 servings
Author: Sun Basket Meal Delivery
Ingredients
  • 1-2 organic shallots
  • 10 ounces organic asparagus
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 boneless skin on chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each) BTW if you can't find boneless skin-on, no worries, just buy bone in and follow directions below
  • 1 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 organic lemon
  • 1 ounce pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1 ounce pitted Castelvetrano olives
  • 1-2 cloves organic peeled fresh garlic
  • 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh flat-leaf parsley
Instructions
Prep and cook the vegetables
  1. Peel the shallots and cut them crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. Separate the slices into rings.

    Snap off the woody ends from the asparagus.

    In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the shallots and asparagus, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning the asparagus occasionally, until the shallots start to soften and the asparagus is crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan.

    While the vegetables cook, prepare the chicken and lemon.

Prep and cook the chicken and lemon
  1. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper and the sweet smoked paprika.

  2. Juice half the lemon and set aside for the olive tapenade; cut the other half in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.

  3. In the same pan used for the asparagus, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and the lemon slices and cook until the chicken skin is well browned and the lemon slices begin to char, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer the lemon slices to the plate with the asparagus. Turn the chicken and cook until the meat is firm and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. (if using bone in skin on: after browning skin and turning skin side up, place a lid on the pan and cook for 10 minutes or until breasts are cooked through)

    While the chicken and lemon cook, prepare the olive tapenade.

Make the olive tapenade
  1. Finely chop the olives, checking for any pits.

    Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure ½ teaspoon (1 tsp).

    Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.

    In a medium bowl, stir together the olives, garlic, parsley, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon plus 1½ teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  2. When chicken is done, remove from pan, quickly add lemon and asparagus back to pan and toss for one minute to re-warm. Transfer the asparagus and lemon slices to individual plates. Top with the chicken and olive tapenade and serve.

Roasted Citrus Herb Game Hens with Vegetables #gamehens #roastchicken #recipesfortwo #whole30 #paleo

The Hens:

We love roasted chicken, but now that it’s just the two of us we opt for organic game hens, rubbed in herbed butter and roasted to perfection! And just the right portion size. Of course if you are cooking for more than two, use a roasting pan and you can double or even triple the recipe.

Roasted Citrus Herb Game Hens with Vegetables #gamehens #roastchicken #recipesfortwo #whole30 #paleo

The Veggies:

Sweet shallots, brightly colored rainbow carrots, and potatoes round out this beautiful meal.

Roasted Citrus Herb Game Hens with Vegetables #gamehens #roastchicken #recipesfortwo #whole30 #paleo

Roasting:

I definitely like to keep meals easy. And while this meal requires a little prep, after that you just   pop it in the and let the hens and vegetables roast together in one pan for easy clean up. It cooks while you go do other things, like check your Instagram.

The Recipe: Roasted Citrus Herb Game Hens with Vegetables

Tips and what you need: make sure to allow time for hens to completely thaw and then remove from the oven an hour before cooking to allow to come to room temp before cooking. You will need a cast iron or oven safe pan.

Roasted Citrus Herb Game Hens with Vegetables

A delicious one pan meal for two! Paleo and Whole 30.

Course: dinner, Main Course
Keyword: gluten free, Paleo, roast chicken, whole30
Servings: 2 servings
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
  • 2 1 pound game hens (room temp)
  • 2 medium shallots, peeled and quartered
  • 6 carrots, peeled and sliced into 2" pieces (I used rainbow carrots)
  • 2 medium size rose potatoes, cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup butter, room temp (can be subbed with ghee)
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste, be generous
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, leaves stripped and chopped
  • 3 sprigs rosemary. 1 sprig leaves chopped, 2 left whole
  • 3 cloves garlic (one minced, the other two left whole)
  • zest of half a lemon, cut other half into wedges
Instructions
Prep Chicken:
  1. Be sure hens are completely thawed and remove them from fridge an hour before cooking so they can come to room temp. Rinse under warm water inside and out, pat dry with paper towels set aside.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place rack in center position

  3. Prep veggies and place in cast iron skillet or oven safe pan, drizzle with olive oil, generously sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, toss

Prep Herbs and Butter:
  1. Strip leaves from thyme sprig and chop, strip leaves from one sprig rosemary and chop (about 1 teaspoon), mince 1 clove garlic. Zest half the lemon and cut the second half into two wedges.

  2. Use a fork to mash soft butter, minced garlic, lemon zest, thyme, chopped rosemary and generous pinches of sea salt and black pepper together. Melt butter mixture, set aside

  3. Make two small wells in pan by pushing the veggies to the side and set hens in each well. Use hands or pastry brush to rub/brush herb butter mixture onto chicken 

  4. Place in the oven and cook for 1 hour, rotating pan a half turn 30 minutes into cooking (note: ovens are notoriously inconsistent and cooking time can vary depending on size of bird and altitude. Juices should run clear and internal temperature should be 165 degrees. You can use a meat thermometer if you want to take the guess work out of it)

  5. If chicken isn't quite browned enough, turn on broiler for a few minutes to brown. When hens are done, remove from pan, tent with foil and allow to "rest" for 10 minutes. Turn oven off and put pan with veggies back into the oven while you wait.

  6. To plate: place veggies and chicken onto plates, drizzle with pan drippings and garnish with parsley if desired. Serve and enjoy!
