Had  a little down time and wanted to make a little something extra for my families fridge. We are so active and busy with softball, coaching, CrossFit, and work that we hardly have time to cook during the week. That is why we always try to stock our fridge with easy re-heatable snacks, lunches, and dinners that are paleo friendly. This paleo recipe does the trick!

The truth is, cooking in bulk and fridging it up is so easy, I don’t know why you wouldn’t at least give it a try. This week we made a few things for the fridge, but today I made a paleo recipe on the fly and we absolutely loved it, so I thought I would share it with you.

What You Will Need:

5-6 Large chicken breasts, or you could do quarters, thighs etc depending on your preference. Just make sure you make enough for left overs and the fridge.

1 mango


cajun seasoning – found at your local grocery store. In a pinch you could use taco seasoning but beware its high in sodium.

1/2 onion

1 Handful of Cilantro

1 Lime

4 cloves garlic minced

9 x 13 pan or two smaller pans



Coat your pan with butter, ghee, or if you have to non-stick spray, and set aside. Pre-heat your oven at 350 degrees. Chop your cilantro, onion, and mango and combine. Add juice from one lime, and minced garlic then set aside. Lay your chicken breasts out on your glass pan, rub with cajun seasoning until covered, sprinkle with pepper. Lastly spoon your mango, onion, and cilantro lime mixture on top of your chicken. Place in the oven for 45 minutes.
