I hope everyone had a great weekend! It was HOT here in Texas, and I did have to be outside for a good chunk of the day in my combat uniform at drill.  Boy was I happy to return to the AC afterwards!

This is one of my favorite recipes to cook on busy weeknights because it’s super tasty and doesn’t take very long to make.  It’s so easy, and it’s delicious!

This is also great when I’m craving Chinese food.  I can’t have typical Chinese food because I’m allergic to soy, and gluten doesn’t sit well in my stomach.  This is a great meal that has that sweet and tangy flavor without the gluten or soy sauce!

Paleo Quicky Sticky Honey Chicken

This Paleo sticky Honey Chicken usually only takes me 15-20 minutes to make, which makes it a perfect meal to cook on the weeknights that I don’t get home until later in the evening.  You can eat this as is, or serve it over cauliflower rice, or regular rice–if you can tolerate it.  I find that my body responds okay to rice, so I usually serve this over some Jasmine or Basmati rice that I have already cooked along with some steamed broccoli.

    This looks so good! I’m curious about the benefits of using tapioca flour as opposed to all purpose.

      Hi Mila! Tapioca flour is a little more similar to corn starch than all purpose flour. Tapioca flour in this recipe serves as a paleo and gluten-free alternative for those with food sensitivities 🙂
