Smoked Paprika Chicken and Asian Broccoli Slaw

The other night we tried some new recipes from my new favorite cookbook, The Food Lovers Make it Paleo, both recipes were well liked.  If you don't have a copy of their cookbook I highly suggest getting one, it is a huge cookbook with over 200 recipes, and so far we have enjoyed everything I have tried out of it.  As usual I always make some minor tweaks to adjust it to either what I  have or what we like better.  The Asian Broccoli Slaw is out of their book so I can't post the recipe here, but I will share with you the changes I made to their recipe (it's on page 272 in their cookbook). 

For the Asian Broccoli Slaw I used 1/2 head of red cabbage and 1/2 a bag of broccoli florets from Costco (about1 1/2 pounds).  I added more sesame oil, more coconut aminos and more green onions than they call for and we added sliced almonds to finish it off.  It was very delicious and kept well.   It makes quite a bit which is nice and  since the leftovers keep well, you can have it handy for lunches etc.  Add some grilled chicken and you have a full lunch in a matter of minutes.
 Veggies for the Slaw.

Leftover Broccoli Slaw the next day, had it with lunch.

 Smoked Paprika Chicken Thighs, can be found on page 194 of their cookbook and also on their blog:
This recipe kind of reminds me of my childhood days when my mom would make Shake-n-bake chicken thighs.  A very warm, homey, subtle flavor which would be great paired with sweet potatoes. Another great winter food.
