AIP Paleo Strawberry Lemonade Chicken Recipe

Normally, I would would give you a post with all of the recipes from my batch cooking adventures of the week.  But, after I created this one, I knew it deserved a post of it’s own. My AIP Paleo Strawberry Lemonade Chicken recipe is very similar to my Strawberry Balsamic Chicken recipe, with a few different twists. So, if you liked that recipe, you’re going to love this one.

I’ll also be releasing a second post this week, detailing my plans for August. Just to give you a heads up, I’m planning on taking some time off. For over two years, I’ve brought you lots of recipes and writings about living with autoimmune disease. I think it’s time for a bit of a vacation.  I’ll share everything with you in my next post. As many of you know, relaxation is a huge part of recovery.

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