I like using different methods of paleo type cooking and baking not only to mix things up but also to share many other ways of utilizing one’s kitchen. Smoker bags are a discovery I made and am really happy I did. The flavor infused throughout the food being cooked is like no other. It can be much easier than having a full-on smoker in your backyard. Oh, by the way, if you do have a full-on smoker I kindly ask that you send me over some smoked meats. 🙂 I found this paleo smoked chicken recipe on my smoker bag – easy to make and right in your kitchen! I added a a few extra spices and some olive oil to add more flavor to it. You know I love flavor!
I hope you enjoy this recipe. Be warned that nce you experience the flavor of using a smoker bag you will want to try to smoke every type of meat. (Like the ribs I smoked in a smoker bag recently.) This is an easy to clean up recipe and goes great with any paleo vegetable side dish, like my paleo swiss chard and mushroom recipe.
