Paleo Chicken and Veggie Bowl

Author: Michele Spring
Servings: 4 - 6 Bowls
Paleo Chicken and Veggie Bowls are an awesome way to get in tons of nutrition, use up leftovers, and make dinner and lunch ahead for the coming week. Whole30 + AIP too
Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 45 mins


  • 2 lb Chicken Thighs (boneless and skinless)
  • 6 medium Carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 1 Parsnip (peeled and diced)
  • 1 small head Broccoli (cut into florets)
  • 3 medium Beets (peeled and diced)
  • 1 bunch Kale (torn into small pieces)
  • 1 small/medium Zucchini (cut into rounds)
  • 1 medium head Cauliflower
  • 1 bunch Radishes (sliced thinly)
  • Sauerkraut
  • Cooking Oil (I used Olive Oil and Avocado Oil)
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper (omit for AIP)


  • Preheat the oven to 425 F. Put the chicken thighs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Roast for 40 min.
  • Put the carrots, parsnip, beets, and broccoli onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast in the same oven as the chicken for 30 min. Add kale onto pan in the last 5 min of cooking.
  • Heat some cooking oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the zucchini and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 min, stirring occasionally.
  • To rice the cauliflower, cut it into large chunks. Get out the shredder blade of your food processor and process the cauliflower chunks through the top chute of your processor. Heat a large pan over medium heat, add cooking oil, and then once the oil is hot add the riced cauliflower. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Assemble the bowls: Add about 1 cup of cauliflower rice into each bowl. Add some broccoli, root veggies, zucchini, sliced chicken thighs, several sliced radishes, and then sprinkle with some sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Add sauerkraut if desired as well.


**The total time above is a bit misleading - you'll prep the first ingredients and then put them into the oven while you prep and cook the rest. So figure on about 45 min- 1 hour total.
