My preferred method of cooking is throw things together and hope that it works, now that I’ve started sharing my recipes I really have to take the time to quantify each ingredient so I can write an actual recipe. This bad boy came about after a late Barre3 class where I didn’t get home until 7:30 and Greg was on his way to baseball practice (he’s a high school coach). It’s Paleo, Whole30, toddler (and husband) approved and finished in under 30 minutes. Serve with a vegetable or salad and it’s the perfect quick comfort food, with no guilt!

Serve over a baked or microwaved (lol) sweet potato with a side of broccoli and a dollop of “Mac’s Awesome Sauce” from Healthy Little Peach!
Please note: this recipe’s ingredients are somewhat costly upfront, I used them because I had them on hand already, as pantry staples. Adjust to taste and affordability, (i.e. use regular ketchup and bbq sauce if not on a round of whole30), I’m positive your recipe will be amazing too!
