Interesting that what is known as the "French Paradox" is not really a paradox at all. They eat what is essentially Paleo/Primal much of the time - meat, veggies and oily sauces. Yes, I know they eat bread too but not like we do in the standard American diet.
I think the REAL "French paradox" is that the French, pretty much considered among the rudest people on the planet, live in the most popular tourist destination in the world!
Oh, wow, I LOVE ghee and I actually think it would work great in this recipe. It's French after all and the French love their butter. I will be curious to hear what you think of the dish. Next time I'm making it with ghee too. Great idea.
Well, not impressed I'm afraid. Had it in the crockpot for 5 hours on low only and the meat had dried out. Thought the flavour was a bit thin too. Might try it again but cook on the stove only long enough to cook the chicken, about 30 min. Maybe more seasoning. I did go light on the salt and thyme
Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.
Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
This is really close to my favorite roast chicken recipe, also 100% primal: TUSCAN ROAST CHICKEN RECIPE I actually have it in the oven right now. I only use bay leaves, tucked up under the skin and stuffed into the cavity, generously coat the chicken in butter then salt and pepper. I'm serving it with zucchini tossed with olive oil and asiago cheese and roasted.
OMG! I remember the first time I had this- I smelled it when I got out of the car, before even opening the front door of a friends house. We all loved it and ate hearty... Then! - co workers and family were NOT amused the next day ,several in fact ,when we all smelled of garlic!
It came from our pores,lungs,sweat... I have been afraid to eat it ever since. We all still laugh about it several years later.
Old French men are known for their horrendous garlic breath btw...just saying... People in the dating world...;-)
