Paleo Curried Lemon Coconut Chicken (Paleo, GAPS, SCD)

Happy friday everyone! I hope you are having a good week. And even if not, at least the weekend is almost here!

I was in a real rush one day and realized that I didn't have anything prepared for dinner. So I randomly threw some ingredients into my slow cooker and headed out the door. Well it turns out the dish was actually really good! So good that I have made it a few more times and decided it was time to share it on the blog. I wish I could say that this happened with every recipe that I throw together but unfortunately this is not the case. For every recipe that makes it to the blog there are at least as mainly failures. So goes life as a food blogger.

On a totally unrelated note do any of you live in Boston or have you spent any time there? I will be heading there next week for a conference and I have never been there before. I would love to visit Harvard if I have time but beyond that I am open to suggestions. Any paleo friendly restaurants you would recommend? Or shopping destinations I should check out? Museums that are good? Seriously I am open to your ideas!

And since I will be in the States I plan on stocking up on a few precious food items that I can't get here at home like Kerrygold butterGreat Lakes Grassfed GelatinEpic Bars and hopefully a few new things. I always love heading to Whole Foods when I am in the U.S and wandering the isles looking for safe foods that I can try. I really wish Whole Foods would come to Calgary. I am like a kid in a candy store in that place. It makes me so happy! I actually booked the apartment that I did because it is only a few blocks from Whole Foods. Yep I am going to be eating well on this trip my friends!

I am also really looking forward to catching up on some sleep while I am away. All this studying on top of working is starting to take it's toll I am afraid. I am already counting down to the days when I write my exams in the spring and life will finally get a bit easier again. It seems so far away, yet scarily close at the same time. Is that even a word? Scarily? The spell check isn't getting angry red at me so maybe it is? Who knew?!

I would love to hear what you think about this chicken.  And as always I would be thrilled if you followed me on  PinterestInstagram and Facebook!

Happy eating everyone! And have a good weekend!
