Chicken and Paleo Herb Butter

Servings 4 people


  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt divided
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves pounded to at least 1/2-inch thickness, 6-oz.
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 1/4 cup ghee or use olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme


  • In a small bowl, combine coconut flour, pepper and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Lightly dust each side of the chicken breast halves with mixture.
  • Heat the olive oil and white wine together in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken and cook for 4 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked through; remove from skillet and keep warm.
  • In a food processor, combine ghee (or olive oil), garlic, rosemary, thyme, and remaining salt; pulse until well blended.
  • Place mixture on a sheet of wax or parchment paper and roll into the shape of a log.
  • Serve a 1/2-inch thick slice of rolled butter (ghee) mixture on the top of each hot piece of chicken (it will melt deliciously while eating!).
