Kickin Chicken

Time to KICK those boring chicken recipes to the side with this dish from Stupid Easy Paleo:Kickin’ BBQ Shredded ChickenTender, shredded chicken swimming in a savory and slightly spicy sauce…do I have your attention? Good because this recipe is sure to get your taste buds amped up!As an athlete, getting enough protein to support recovery can be a challenge for me, and falling into a rut with meat choices is something I try to avoid. Adding sauces and spices to a blank protein canvas and making frequent use of my favorite culinary secret weapon - the crock pot - are two of my favorite ways to feed the machine and keep myself from getting a big fat case of food boredom. This recipe makes good use of a drool-worthy sauce and meat that practically cooks itself. Win-win!The sauce is vinegar-based, more typical of Carolina BBQ, and uses a small amount of honey for a hint of sweetness. If you’d like to avoid honey, you can make a paste of 4-5 Medjool dates soaked in hot water for 10 minutes, drained and mashed instead. Bonus: using dates as a substitute would make this recipeWhole30-friendly!Other tricks for busy folks: Make the sauce ahead of time (it can also be frozen) and cook the chicken while at work or the gym. Come home, shred the meat and heat the sauce…done!Serves 4 Ingredients:
