Chicken Paleo Pomodoro

Ok, I have to give Scott credit for this dish. I went to CrossFit late tonight to do some much needed deadlifting, while he salved in the kitchen! He did great and it was truly delicious!!! I was just the sous-chef on this job... I sliced, diced and cleaned up!!
Thanks, Scott! It was one of my favorite meals and it made a lot of leftovers! :-)

Recipe:
4 chicken breast, pounded thin, and cut in half
1 T olive oil
1/4 C vodka
1/2 C low sodium chicken broth
2 T lemon juice
1/2 C chopped tomatoes
1/2 C chopped artichoke hearts (packed in water)
2 T light coconut milk
1/4 C scallions, minced
1/4 C almond meal
2 T dried parsley flakes
2 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. Italian seasoning

Combine almond meal, parsley, Italian seasoning, and pepper. LIGHTLY coat chicken breasts.
Heat olive oil in a pan and brown chicken breast for about 3-5 minutes on both sides. Remove chicken to a baking dish. Deglaze pan with vodka... AWAY from any flame!!! Cook until it's nearly gone! Now, I realize vodka is not really Paleo, but I figure it all practically burns off anyway! Add broth, lemon juice, tomatoes, artichokes, and coconut milk. Pour pomodoro sauce over the chicken breasts. Sprinkle scallions over the top and bake at 350 for about 10 more minutes. We served this with sauteed spinach and a side salad! Enjoy! :-)
