It doesn't get any easier than this...Paleo Chicken Burger

I made a visit to our local farmstand yesterday.  It's the best!  It's a large outdoor stand just a couple miles from home owned by local farmers.  A great deal of the produce is farmed beind the stand and much of it is organic.  It's all arranged in a tidy fashion, but the best part is the cool jazz playing in the background.  It's vegetable buying mood music.  I buy much more when listening to mood music.

I came home with a huge head of leafy green lettuce, tomatoes, giant avocados, fresh onions, asparagus and a whole lot more!  About 6 bags worth.

Tonight, after a pretty tough workout, I came home hungry, but didn't have a plan.  We needed something quick, yet healthy!  Having the fresh produce on hand made nutrtious meal planning easy.

First, turn on the grill.  Grilling can be super quick.  Turn on the oven to 425 degrees.

What's in the freezer?  Chicken thighs.  Easy.  Defrost chicken thighs while grill is heating up. 

Wash asparagus and lettuce.  Slice, onion, tomato, avocado. 

Place asparagus on foil sheet on grill.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with kosher salt.  Grill.

Love the asparagus!

Next place chicken thighs on grill.  I know there are beef burgers on the grill too.  We have a hungry crowd to feed.

In the meantime, bake sweet potato fries.  I forgot to mention them earlier.  Yummy to have on hand.  Fresh sweet potatoes on the grill are yummy too, but not tonight.


Dinner is served.

Yummy chicken thigh burger wrap, grilled asparagus, and sweet potato fries.  Yes!  Mission accomplished!

I hope you can see the chicken under all the veggies.
