Sautéed Red Cabbage with Apples || Practical Paleo

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs
Serves 2

4 bone-in, skinless chicken thighs
8 slices of bacon
2 tsp Smoky Spice Blend or Savory Blend

Preparation: Preheat oven to 375. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with 1 tsp of Smoky Spice Blend, then wrap each one in 2 strips of bacon. Sprinkle with the remaining Smoky Spice Blend and bake for approximately 40 minutes.


Smoky Spice Blend: 1 Tbsp chipotle powder, 1 Tbsp smoked paprika, 1 Tbsp onion powder, 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon, 1 Tbsp sea salt, 1/2 Tbsp black pepper

Savory Spice Blend: 2 Tbsp Rosemary Salt (I just used 1 T salt with a 1 T rosemary), 1 T garlic powder 1, T onion powder, 1/2 T paprika, 1 tsp black pepper


Sauteed Red Cabbage with Apple

2 Tbsp lard/bacon fat, grass-fed butter or coconut oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 head of red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
1c Apple Cider Vinegar
1 green apple, cut into matchstick sized pieces
1 T. Rosemary Salt (1/2 T dried rosemary, 1/2 T salt)

In a large enameled pot or pan, sautée the onion in the fat, then when they’re mostly cooked, add the cabbage until it begins to soften. Add the vinegar and seasonings. Allow the cabbage and onion mixture to cook down until everything is soft, then add the apples and allow them to cook in until soft. The total cooking time tends to be around 30-45 minutes to get the cabbage really soft. Add more vinegar or some water if the mixture gets too dry.
