AIP Paleo Spicy Chicken Slaw Recipe

This week’s recipe is a nice and easy one for you, AIP Paleo Spicy Chicken Slaw.  I created this one especially for those of you who are missing a bit of spice on the AIP.  Lately, I’ve really been missing my hot sauce.  I used to put that stuff on everything!  Of course, that’s probably why I ended up with chronic stomach ulcers most of my life.  Well, that…..and the stress!

I decided to use the heat from fresh radish, arugula, and garlic to create the spice in this AIP Paleo Spicy Chicken Slaw.  These flavors add just the touch of “tongue burn” that I was looking for.  The dressing was actually inspired by Angie Alt’s recipe for Arugula Guacamole from The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook.  It’s one of my absolute favorite recipes in her cookbook.  You can order the ebook here, and the printed book here.  I highly recommend it!

Well, I hope you enjoy my AIP Paleo Spicy Chicken Slaw.  It makes a great lunch.  And, if you’re flying solo on the AIP thing, you’ll have some leftovers to munch on later.  Most of my lunches are salads.  I love combining different veggies, fruits and meats to make a tasty lunch salad.  If you ever need meal inspiration, check out my Instagram page here.  I usually post twice a day photos of my meals.  I also post tips on batch cooking, food prepping and AIP lifestyle tips.  Not on Instagram, I also post on my Facebook page here.  Plus, I share lots of recipes from some of my buds in the AIP blogger community.  One of the best things I ever did in my healing journey was to connect with others in the AIP social media community.  Come and connect with us.  We don’t bite!

As always, I wish you good health….and, good food!
