Paleo Yogurt Basil Chicken Tenders and Lemon & Parsley Jumbo Shrimp

November 17, 2011

I’ve been know to make some absolutely delicious foods. And with that statement I don’t mean to sound that full of myself, but it’s true. If you feel like you’re good at something, why not admit it?

Anyway, I love to cook and bake and create foods. I’ve practiced doing so so much that I feel as though I’ve blogged my way into knowing what I’m doing. So, that all being said, I think I am a pretty darn good chef.

Lately, I’ve had many people ask for Paleo recipes, or recipes geared toward weight lifting, or just less grains, legumes, and carbohydrates. Something more meaty, for lack of a better phrase.

I say, it never hurts to ask. If you’re brave enough to ask, you usually end up getting what you want.

Or at least I do.

This is a great recipe for a low carbohydrate meal, and one that supports CrossFit, weight lifting, and just an active lifestyle. This recipe is gluten free and you can literally add any type of meat you wish, even subbing with veggies, tofu, etc., as the marinade would be amazing on anything.

When I made this, I chose a more surf-n-turf combo. If the chicken alone wasn’t incredible enough, I kicked it up about 12 notches by adding in jumbo shrimp and paprika roasted veggies.

And if you are in the mood for some shrimp, make this recipe now.

You won’t be sorry.

So, so, SO good!

What recipes do YOU want to see? I’m open. 😉

Both sound great! But no reason to go low carb, just better carb choices!

I was never a shrimp fan until this summer, when I tried some grilled. Those were good, but I still haven’t had any since then. I keep saying I’m going to get some, and then I leave the store without any. This looks fantastic though!

I concur, Lori. Your savory recipes especially always sound so amazing!
