AIP Paleo Slow Cooker Sage Chicken with Mushroom and Herb Gravy Recipe

With my Door To Door Organics-Chicago giveaway drawing to a close, I wanted to feature a recipe made with some of the fresh, organic ingredients I received from my weekly delivery.  The fact is, most of my meals are made from ingredients from their deliveries. My AIP Paleo Slow Cooker Sage Chicken with Mushrooms and Herb Gravy Recipe showcases the variety of products you can order through Door To Door Organics.

This AIP Paleo Slow Cooker Sage Chicken with Mushroom and Herb Gravy Recipe  is pretty easy to create, even if you’re not that into cooking.  Most of the cooking happens in the slow cooker.  So, you can just set it, and go on with your busy life.  I used organic free range chicken thighs, ordered through Door To Door Organics Chicago.  You could use whichever pieces and parts you prefer, just keep it to about 2 pounds of chicken.  Enjoy!

I have decided to hold my post on Autoimmune Disease and Infertility until next week.  It’s a very sensitive and important topic.  I don’t think it’s right for me to be announcing the winners of the giveaway at the same time.  The matter deserves an entire, dedicated post.  Friday’s post will announce the three winners of the Door To Door Organics-Chicago $50 gift certificates.
