Onion and Sage Chicken Recipe- GAPS Legal, Paleo/Primal, Gluten Free, Sugar Free

Sometimes the most simple recipe can end up tasting out of this world. Take this onion sage chicken that I made today. Just a few ingredients but tastes sumptuous and delicious. The chicken is moist and flavorful, all the ingredients in it are cheap, and it's perfect for every single diet I can think of- other than vegan/vegetarian, of course. Allergy friendly to boot.

I used foraged sage for this, but you can use store bought or home grown sage as well.

Onion and Sage Chicken Recipe- GAPS Legal, Paleo/Primal, Gluten Free, Sugar Free

6-8 pieces of chicken (or one whole chicken cut up)
3 large onions
Oil for frying
1 tsp dried sage leaves or 1/2 teaspoon powdered sage
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2-1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1. Cut onion into rings and saute until browning slightly.

2. Break up the sage into little pieces and cover the chicken pieces. If using powdered, just sprinkle on.

3. Put the fried onions on top of the sage covered chicken.

4. Sprinkle salt, garlic powder, and pepper on top of the onions.

5. Bake in the oven at 350 for an hour, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

P.S. Try using the liquids at the bottom as a gravy over rice or mashed potatoes, just thickened with potato starch, possibly with the addition of mushrooms.

  1. My favorite chicken recipe is chicken curry! No, I have not made onion sage chicken, but I will very VERY soon. Probably tomorrow! The recipe looks amazing and I already know it will taste fantastic. My mouth is watering, no joke. Thanks for always providing your readers with such delicious recipe offerings!

  2. The recipe looks delicious. Unfortunately I can't have it on the diet I'm on, which is a low FODMAP diet (for symptoms of IBS.) The food restrictions are quite challenging to work around. There are getting to be more blogs and sites with low FODMAP recipes, fortunately. It's a relatively new diet, out of Australia. Perhaps you might be interested to read up on it, given the nature of your blog and recipes.
