Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken with Rosemary

I love crock pot meals any time of year. In colder seasons slow cookers make the most comforting savory meals, and in warmer months they create lovely lighter meals without heating up the kitchen, plus they help with time management! And who doesn’t love prepping early and coming home to a beautiful, warm meal and a house that smells divine? No one, that’s who. When it comes to amazing crock pot meals, this slow Cooker Lemon Chicken with Rosemary ranks way up high on our list of family favorites

Making this Meal:

I made this meal with my Cuisinart Multicooker. It browns/sautés, steams and roasts! So instead of having to brown the chicken and sauté the veggies in a separate pan and transfer to the crock pot, I browned the chicken, sautéed the veggies, and slow cooked it all in the crock pot. Only one dish to clean! That said, if you have a regular crock pot you can certainly brown the chicken and onions in a pan and transfer to the slow cooker.

Only Three Steps: Dredge, Brown, Cook!

I followed one of the recipes in the  Cuisinart Multicooker cookbook…and by ‘follow’ I mean I changed it…because that’s how I roll. I added carrots and instead of using all thigh meat I added one chicken breast because my husband is a breast man (yep, I said that). I spent a little time prepping in the morning and six hours later I had a healthy dinner!

Make This Recipe Gluten or Grain Free:

To keep this recipe gluten free, simply dredge your chicken in your favorite gluten free flour, I recommend Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour. To make this recipe Paleo/Whole30/grain free, I use cassava flour. No matter which you choose, this meal will be gorgeous, light, lemony and fall off the bone tender!

The Recipe: Slow Cooker Chicken with Rosemary and Carrots

You will need a  Cuisinart Multicooker  (or regular crock pan and a good quality pan, preferably cast iron for good browning) sea salt, freshly turned pepper and chicken broth (<—my recipe) To make this recipe gluten free I recoemmend Jovial Gluten Free Pastry Flour. To make this recipe Paleo/Whole30/grain free, I use cassava flour or almond meal.

I adapted this recipe from the Cuisinart Multi Cooker Cookbook. If you are using a regular slow cooker you will need to brown the chicken and sauté the onions and garlic in a separate pan. Instructions for both included below.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Keyword: easy dinner recipe, slow cooker recipe, summer recipe
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
  • 1 T olive oil, butter, ghee or coconut oil
  • 4 pounds bone in skin on chicken thighs (I always throw in a breast, you can even use a whole cut up chicken)
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite flour (Gluten free use GF flour, grain free peeps use garbanzo bean or cassava flour)
  • 3 large yellow onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
  • 8 carrots, thinly sliced (1/8" thick)
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3 springs fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 T lemon zest
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced
Instructions
  1. Trim chicken of extra fat, sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and dredge in your choice of flour, set aside.

  2. Slice onions, carrots (carrots should be thin or they won't cook through, about 1/8") chop garlic, zest lemons, then squeeze lemon juice, set aside
  3. Put butter, ghee, coconut oil or olive oil in Multicooker and set to brown/sauté at 400 degrees (or place in a cast iron pan on medium high heat)
  4. Once the pan and fat are hot, add half the chicken skin side down and brown six minutes per side. Remove and repeat with second batch of chicken. Set all chicken on a plate.
  5. Add garlic and onions to crock pot (or pan) and sauté until softened and slightly browned (about 8 minutes)
  6. Add rosemary, a pinch of sea salt and a few turns of pepper.
  7. Add lemon juice, scraping brown bits from pan with wooden spoon or silicone spatula. Let juice come to a boil and reduce by half (about 2 minutes)
  8. Add broth and lemon zest, stir. (If using a traditional crock pot add all to veggies to crock pot now)
  9. Add sliced carrots, and nestle browned chicken on top, then lemon slices. Place lid on multicooker and set to slow cook on low for 6 hours.
  10. Serving suggestions: I love it as is but you can serve it with salad, steamed broccoli or over rice, barley, quinoa or couscous.

I felt like fairies came in and cooked for me while I went about my busy day! I hope you will try using your slow cooker this summer. It really does make life easier and more tasty!

Easy Chunky Guacamole

Guacamole…what is there to say other than it makes just about everything taste better. Being from California, we eat guacamole like other people eat butter, we slather that stuff on everything including toast. And this Easy Chunky Guacamole is always our family favorite!

Easy and Full of Healthy Fats!

An avocado a day keeps the doctor away, that is a fact. Or not, I will let you decide. But mash an avocado with a little garlic, pico de gallo, olive oil and a little sea salt and I promise no one, not even the doctor will want to stay away:)

Easy Chunky Guacamole #guacamole #whole30 #paleo #keto

How to Pick a Ripe Avocado:

Generally speaking, you want an avocado that is firm (not hard) but has a little ‘give’. But when it comes to making guacamole, avocados can be a bit softer. If you can’t wait for avocados to ripen on the counter naturally, place them in a paper bag with an apple or banana to speed up the process. Learn how to core and slice an avocado here.

Easy Chunky Guacamole #guacamole #whole30 #paleo #keto

Use Store Bought Pico de Gallo or Homemade!

This easy recipe requires nothing more than tossing chunks of ripe avocado with a little olive oil, garlic and pico de gallo. You can use store bought or my homemade version! Either way your guacamole will be a hit!

 

Serving Suggestions…

Serve with fish tacos, pulled pork tacos, butternut squash tostadas, sweet potato fries, or these caramelized veggie quesadillas!

Farmhouse Eggs Benedict on Zucchini Fritters! (Paleo-Whole30 option)

Have I mentioned that we are moving from Southern California to Gig Harbor Washington? As a lifelong Californian I truly have no idea what to expect. And in the last few months we have been making the most of the sunny Cali weather by taking weekend trips to many of our favorite local destinations, Ojai being one of them. Our favorite Ojai eatery, Azu, serves the most amazing Farmhouse Eggs Benedict on Zucchini Fritters. I came up with my own version so we can enjoy a favorite breakfast after the move!

Ojai: Go If You Can!

We just love Ojai. It’s nestled in the mountains, just 20 minutes from the beaches of Santa Barbara and has a small town charm that is a mix of cowboy country and yoga retreats. The main street has the most charming shops, a gorgeous park, and truly fabulous food! We also love to visit Frog Creek Farm every summer for lavender cutting and the fresh produce.

This Breakfast: Options, Options, Options!

While the Farmhouse Eggs Benny at Azu is gluten free, it does have dairy and traditionally made Hollandaise Sauce. My version can be made with regular or gluten free flour, or can be made grain free by using cassava flour. Cassava flour is a miracle! It allows this recipe to fit the Paleo/Whole30 lifestyle while not compromising on taste or texture! And to make this recipe Keto friendly, use almond flour, just know it won’t bind quite as well as other flours.

Let’s Talk About Poached Eggs…

Poached eggs are very easy to make, but a few tips can really help. First, use really fresh pastured eggs (NOT pasteurized eggs…very different!) Second, use a small pot and add a little white vinegar to the water, this prevents your egg from getting slimy. Third, use the vortex method! Wait what??? The vortex? Don’t sweat it, I have a video tutorial that shows you step by step how to do it.

The 90 Second Blender Hollandaise Sauce:

Hollandaise sauce is usually made with butter, and you are certainly welcome to use a lovely grass fed butter in this recipe if you aren’t on Whole 30, but my W30 peeps will be happy to know my sauce is made with ghee, so it’s completely compliant, and honestly I think it’s just as delicious as when butter us used!

The Recipe: Farmhouse Eggs Benedict on Zucchini Fritters! (Paleo-Whole30 option)

Tips and what you need:  I recommend a cast iron pan for this job. You will also need a food processor or box grater for grating zucchini. I use arrowroot powder for thickening to keep this recipe Paleo/W30. If you have no dietary restrictions you can use corn starch) Flour options include gluten free flour or to make this recipe Whole30/ Paleo I use cassava flour.

A fun, fresh take on traditional Eggs Benny this Farmhouse Eggs Benedict is served on Zucchini Fritters, has a touch of basil and offers Paleo-Whole30 and keto options! 

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Keyword: breakfast, eggs benedict, gluten free, keto, Paleo, whole30
Servings: 2 servings
Ingredients
For Fritters:
  • 2 medium zucchini, grated (makes about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons your favorite flour, I use cassava to keep this recipe W30 and Paleo (keto use almond flour)
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot powder (or cornstarch if you aren't Paleo?w30)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 6 basil leaves, chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
For Hollandaise Sauce:
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup warm melted butter or ghee (use ghee if w30)
For Poached Eggs:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees (to keep fritters warm)

For fritters:
  1. Grate zucchini, place in colander. Sprinkle with sea salt and toss well. Place colander in sink and allow to sit for 10 minutes.

  2. While zucchini rests, chop basil and measure out other ingredients

  3. After zucchini rests, place between paper towels and squeeze out excess moisture (or wring out in a clean dish towel) The more moisture you eliminate the crispier your fritter will be, you may need to do this several times with fresh paper towels.

  4. Place zucchini in a large bowl.

    Add egg, your choice of flour, arrowroot or cornstarch, pepper, and half the basil (reserving the rest for garnish). Mix well.

  5. Heat an oven safe pan on high heat. Add olive oil, coat pan evenly . When oil is very hot turn heat to medium. Use a measuring cup to add 1/3 cup zucchini mixture to the pan. Use the bottom of the cup to press the mixture into a patty about a 3/4 inch thick

  6. Cook until golden brown (about 3-4 minutes) gently turn patties over, and cook the second side until golden brown (another 3 minutes or so) place pan in oven to keep warm while you poach eggs and make sauce

For Eggs and Sauce:
  1. I recommend watching the video linked above for a quick egg poaching tutorial.

  2. Set a small pot of water with 1 tablspoon white vinegar to boil. Crack three eggs into three small dishes

  3. When water in pot is boiling, use one hand to hold the egg dish and use a spoon in the other hand to stir water quickly, forming a 'vortex'. While water is vigorously spinning drop egg gently right into the center of the vortex, then very quickly add the next two eggs. (I usually recommend poaching no more than two eggs at a time, but since we are doing three I say go for it:)

  4. Cook eggs 2 1/2 -5 minutes: 2 1/2 minutes makes for a runny yolk, five minutes cooks them all the way through. I recommend runny of course

  5. While eggs cook, make 90 second Hollandaise sauce:

  6. Melt ghee (or butter) in a small pan until very warm but not simmering and set aside. While ghee melts add add yolks, lemon juice, dijon and spices to blender

  7. Blend for 30 seconds, then slowly drizzle in melted ghee (or butter) and blend for 30-60 more seconds. It should thicken immediately

  8. When eggs are done to your liking use a slotted spoon or fish spatula to remove them from water and set on a paper towel.

  9. Place eggs on zucchini fritters, pour Hollandaise sauce over eggs, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, garnish with remaining basil. Serve!

Low carb comfort food that is Paleo/Keto and Whole30 compliant. Instead of cornstarch you will be using arrowroot and non dairy yogurt to thicken your gravy.

Course: dinner
Keyword: cauliflower puree, gravy, keto, meatballs, Paleo, whole30
Servings: 4 servings
Author: Linda Spiker
Ingredients
  • 8 cups cauliflower, stem removed and broken into florets
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (or butter)
  • 20 ounces ground turkey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 tablespoons chives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (for thickening gravy)
  • 4 tablespoons non dairy plain yogurt (I use cashew or coconut yogurt)
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. For Cauliflower

  2. Wash cauliflower, cut off stem and break into florets, steam until soft. When cauliflower is soft. Place half the cooked cauliflower into a food processor with 1 tablespoon ghee (or butter) and a couple pinches of sea salt and black pepper, blend until smooth (you can also use a potato masher and do it by hand) Repeat with second batch.

  3. While cauliflower is steaming, make meatballs

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Place ground turkey, egg, and almond meal in a bowl, work with hands until well blended. Add spices, 2 tablespoons chives and two generous pinches sea salt and black pepper, work with hands until mixed well

  5. Using wet hands form into 1 1/2" meatballs 

  6. In a large pan over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil until hot but not smoking. Add the meatballs and cook, turning once, until golden brown but not yet cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes total. Turn off heat (do not clean the pan) Transfer to oven safe baking dish and place in oven for 5 minutes (or until cooked through)

  7. Place 2 tablespoon swarm water in a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder and whisk until smooth (this is called a slurry and will thicken your gravy). Set aside. 

  8. Return the pan used for the meatballs to high heat: Whisk in the chicken stock scraping browned bits off bottom of pan, bring broth to a boil. Once you have achieved a boil, turn off heat. Add the slurry, whisking vigorously. Return to low heat, allow 2 to 3 minutes for gravy to thicken (do not allow to boil. When gravy is desired consistency gradually add the non-dairy yogurt,  1 tablespoon at a time, whisking between additions until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. When the meatballs are cooked through, remove from oven and place in gravy pan.

  9. Place pureed cauliflower on plates, top with meatballs and gravy, garnish with remaining chives (If desired, drizzle some melted ghee over potatoes)
