Paleo Grilled Chicken with Rhubarb Chutney

One reason I love eating whole, real foods is that my plate is full of items I would have never tried years ago. Rhubarb is one of those foods that never seemed to make its way into our home. But now that I’ve tried it, I can’t wait for the peak season every year! The tartness of Rhubarb combined with sweet, raw honey makes the perfect combination to give grilled chicken some flare.

    Would I be able to make the chutney in a large batch, water bath it and keep on the shelf and for how long?

    Have a Joyful Day :~D

    Is there anything I can substitute for the rhubarb? I live in Louisiana and no one carries it, fresh or frozen. Apparently it doesn’t grow down here and no one see the need to import it from out of state.

      Hi Miranda that’s a bummer! It’s so delicious! You can substitute tart apples instead.

        I know, I love rhubarb! I didn’t even know it wouldn’t grow down here. We had it in CO where I’m from. I always stocked up on it! I’ll try tart apples and see how it turns out. Thank you for replying so fast!

          Yes Miranda I’m in Colorado and it’s in abundance here! Well not yet but soon enough. :) I’d send some to you if I could! You’re welcome.

    Hi there! Just a note — This is on a menu marked as Whole30 compliant, but honey is a Whole30 no-no, unfortunately. We’re going to make it anyway, just without the honey!
