Paleo Lemon Pepper Chicken & Brussel Sprouts

7 Dec

I know I have another recipe for Lemon Brussel Sprouts and I still stand by that being an awesome recipe.  However, I like to tweak my recipes and usually the more times I make it, the better it gets.  This is one of those examples, from the Lemon Brussel Sprouts came Lemon Pepper Chicken & Brussel Sprouts.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

Lemon Pepper Chicken and Brussels



  • Package stir fry chicken strips
  • Juice from 2 lemons
  • 1/4 red onion diced
  • 4-6 strips turkey bacon diced
  • Teaspoon coconut oil
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Garlic powder to taste


  • Start by cutting brussel sprouts in half and removing the gross stems and boil them until fork tender
  • While brussel sprouts are boiling, heat a large skillet and melt coconut oil in the pan
  • Once skillet is heated to a medium heat, start cooking diced turkey bacon and diced onion with crushed black pepper and garlic powder
  • In a separate pan, cook chicken strips with the juice of one lemon and plenty of cracked black pepper
  • Once chicken is cooked, add it to the bacon and onion mixture (including the juice)
  • Cover ingredients with cracked black pepper
  • Let cook for about 7-10 minutes mixing ingredients together
  • Drain brussel sprouts and add to skillet
