Paleo Honey Mustard Chicken Salad | One To Nothin'

Paleo Honey Mustard Chicken Salad

I've been cooking a lot lately, guys. Like, way more than I have been working out. The only bad thing is my camera sort of makes everything look like ass crackers (I'm making that a thing--just go with it). But because cooking for yourself and your sausage dog doesn't seem impressive unless documented in blogland, I'm going to show them to you anyway. Try to contain the pitter patter of your paleo hearts, my friends, because the recipes to come in the following weeks are mostly grain-, dairy- and sugar-free. Party.
This recipe was adapted from this one from PaleOMG
Here's what I used though: 
chicken breasts
2 T coconut oil
1 T garlic (the chopped kind from a jar because I'm lazy and terrible at chopping)
half of a white onion
1 red bell pepper
a bunch of capers (because I'm obsessed)
4 T dijon mustard 
3 T honey
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste 
(she originally also used celery and plantains, but I didn't have any on hand, so I went without)

First dice up the raw chicken (my least favorite part, so gross) and cook it over the coconut oil and garlic until it's golden brown.
Then combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, dump in the cooked chicken, mix it up and serve over mixed greens for a honey mustard chicken salad.
Warning: your breath will be rank afterwards, so avoid eating this before going out, unless you're into garlic/onion breath, in which case, do yo' thang.

I still went kind of easy in the workout department this week because I've still got the sick thing happening, but here's what I managed:

Sunday: 4(ish)-mile hike (resulting in surprisingly intense soreness. All those SF hills!)
Tuesday: 3.5 mile run, love your booty (x2), love your legs (x2)
Thursday: love your total body

Happy Friday, friends!
