    Absolutely. 100% primal approved. All it is is egg and coconut, which are if anything the two most favorite things on this entire website.

    Oh. My. Goodness. This is going to be one of those threads I keep coming back to for inspiration. THANKS A MILLION! If you aren't already, you should consider setting up your own primal catering business or something similar.

    This one was pretty good. A 4.5 pound roasted chicken with an Asian-style BBQ sauce. If anyone's interested, here's how I did it:

    Rinse the chicken and pat dry with a paper towel. Trim the skin away from the breast. Melt 1/2 stick of butter in the microwave. Lift the skin up and pour half of the butter inside the breast cavity. Lightly salt and pepper the bird, then pour the rest of the butter all over the skin. Set on a rack in your roasting pan.

    In the bottom of the roasting pan, fill with 1 inch of water. Add chopped celery, yellow onion and carrots. Stuff the cavity of the bird with a chopped yellow onion, celery, carrots and fresh thyme. I also rubbed the skin of the bird down with a little remaining thyme. Slice a lime in half, squeeze the juice over the bird and jam the lime halves into the cavity. Cover the bird in the roasting pan completely with aluminum foil. Bake at 450*F for 20 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350*F and continue cooking for 20 minutes per pound (my 4.5 pound bird took 1 hour 35 mins total).

    While the bird is roasting, make your BBQ sauce. My sauce was pretty simple.

    4 Tablespoons tomato sauce/tomato paste
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 Tablespoon cider vinegar/red wine vinegar
    1 heaping tablespoon Asian chili paste (you can get it in the Thai section of your grocer)
    1 Tablespoon soy sauce (you should use tamari but I only had soy sauce on hand)
    1 Tablespoon fish sauce (again, with the Thai food)
    1 Tablespoon honey
    1/2 tsp stevia powder

    Mix together in a small pot and simmer on medium-low heat until thickened.

    Remove the bird 30 minutes before the timer goes off. Paint half the BBQ sauce on with a brush. Bake the bird, uncovered, until done. Reapply the remaining BBQ sauce at the 15 minute mark, or if you prefer it to be less carmalized, paint the bird down with it at the end.

    Here's the important part: LET THE BIRD SIT ON A DISH COVERED WITH ALUMINUM FOIL FOR 10-15 MINUTES BEFORE CUTTING! If you don't do this, the bird will be dry. At the 10-15 minute mark, the bird will be so juicy it'll practically fall apart. See the leg in my picture? When lifting the bird onto the plate, it was so juicy the leg almost completely ripped off just from picking it up. This step is crucial!



    Slice and enjoy

    I might actually take you up on that, is that 15 bucks going to cover tax and shipping to ND?

    Just tried out that bread recipe. My 7 yr old didn't like it, but it was a hit with my 3 yr old (who is such a fussy eater--thanks for this recipe!). And the reason my oldest didn't like it was I added rosemary to the mix. I'm going to take a slice later and top it off with tomato sauce and mozzarella to see if it'll make for a decent pizza crust. Probably not, with the coconut and all, but I'm curious. Typically I like an almond meal and flaxseed crust for pizza, sometimes cauliflower.
