Seared Paleo Chicken with Creamy Garlic Sauce
It’s an amazing delicious chicken meal that is so simple to throw together. Enjoy it with a side of blanched broccoli, roasted veggies or a simple salad. It’s really great for those days when you don’t have a lot of time to be hanging out in the kitchen. Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free and Whole30.
