Paleo Chicken Tortilla-less Soup

Directions

1. Preheat your oven 375 degrees Fahrenheit (350 for convection). Place your chicken breasts in a large baking pan, and pour one tablespoon of oil over all, coating well. Sprinkle your fajita seasoning over the chicken, coating well, and place in the oven. Cook for about 30-45 minutes (depending on the size of the chicken pieces) until cooked through and liquid from chicken runs clear. Using two forks, shred the chicken (while this is not so easy to do while the chicken is hot, I find I get a better “shred” if I do so while the chicken is still hot). Alternately, you can just chop the chicken into small pieces.

2. Meanwhile, in a large dutch oven over medium heat, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, and when hot, add in the onions. Cook until onions are translucent, about 4-6 minutes.  Finish reading directions & get ingredient list here…

Chocolate + Bacon = Love. It’s the perfect couple. So sexy. So delicious. What are you waiting for?!

I used a Lindt Chocolate bar with 90% cacao content. Feel free to use whatever you want. Next time I may go with 100% and add a little honey (if you try this please let me know how it turns out!).
