Bam! Take that Food Network!!
Seriously, this is so easy and so delicious! I was inspired by a meal card at the grocery store and I thought that it really had some potential to be a delicious paleo meal, so I made a few alterations and now it is a delicious, easy, go-to Paleo dinner which is perfect to make when you don't have much time.
What You Need
- 1 lb Chicken Tenderloins
- 1 TBSP Chicken Seasoning (I like Weber Garlic and Herb)
- Salt and Pepper (if desired)
- 6-8 dates, pitted and chopped
- 1 shallot, sliced thin
- 1 tsp garlic, minced
- 2 slices of bacon, coarsely chopped (I used Turkey)
- 1 cup of white wine
- Goat Cheese (optional, but highly recommended)
In a skillet over med-high heat, cook the chicken tenders for 3 minutes on each side, until browned. Remove from heat.
Add the chopped bacon to the skillet and cooked until crispy. Add shallots, dates and minced garlic to the pan with the bacon. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
Remove the skillet from the heat and add the wine. Return to heat, but turn the heat down to low. Cover and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Remove and chop the chicken and then return to the shallot/date sauce and toss. Top with goat cheese and serve.
It may not be the prettiest thing you've ever seen, but it sure to be one of the yummiest! :)
To make the Salad:
- 1 Tomato (Organic), Sliced
- 1 Green onion, diced
- 1 TBSP Balsamic vinegar
- 2 TBSP olive oil
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl combine the dressing ingredients. Stir to combine and pour over salad.
