Delicious and simple grilled honey mustard chicken with the best honey mustard marinade that’s perfect for baked or grilled chicken recipes. The paleo honey mustard chicken marinade is sweet, tangy, and an easy way to add moisture and flavor to any cut of chicken!

My former Applebee’s order in middle and high school: chicken tenders with a decent-sized amount of honey mustard sauce for dipping. Give me all the tangy sweetness, please. Not gonna lie, I’ve always been obsessed with all things mustard. I love dipping my carrots in dijon.

Can’t have a sandwich without spicy or brown mustard…or any mustard really. I get weak for a good honey mustard pretzel combo. Can’t ever have a hot dog or corn dog without yellow mustard. The list goes on.

10. Grilled Orange Chicken

Grilled Orange Chicken

This grilled chicken includes a light citrusy marinade that’s perfect for summer. Grilling is my absolute favorite way to cook. If the weather is nice I’ll be on the porch making dinner. Chicken, burgers, steaks… all of them make me happy. But I can tell you that this yummy Grilled Orange Chicken is about to go on regular rotation over here. It is so good.

The key to this phenomenal dish is the marinade. It’s mild so you’re not getting an overwhelming citrus flavor. Instead, it’s light, bright, and screams of warm weather days with sunshine. So many store-bought marinades rely on sugar to bring out the sweetness but not here, friends. Orange juice is plenty sweet on its own and the Coconut Aminos add a depth of flavor you’re going to love.

Finally, everything is tossed together with a simple dressing made from more of those herb-infused oils, plus the addition of freshly squeezed lemon juice and a little Dijon mustard.

It’s the perfect light and refreshing dressing to complement the smoky flavors of the grilled vegetables. This grilled summer vegetable salad recipe is completely flexible so feel free to get creative in the kitchen!

That’s veggie magic folks. And this zucchini side dish is magic too. It’s healthy. It’s easy. And as the Italians do, it can be plated and set on a table to be, served warm or at room temperature so it’s perfect for serving at a potluck or party.

7. Grilled Potato & Arugula Salad with Fresh Herbs 

Grilled Potato & Arugula Salad with Fresh Herbs 

This Grilled Potato and Arugula Salad with Fresh Herbs is a summertime backyard BBQ staple around here. A must when we are entertaining. Put all other potato salads to shame with multiple layers of flavor and texture.

Whenever we have people over, whether we are cooking up the most elaborate or the most simple of meals – this side dish stunner is my go-to. Cooking up the potatoes first allows them to soften up a bit, so when they hit the grilled glistening with the Terra Delyssa olive oil, they get a golden brown char to the outside of them, while still holding their shape.

Try substituting baby spinach, kale, or other lettuces or greens for the arugula and even play with different vinaigrette moves, try adding in a whole grain mustard, a little lemon zest, and maybe add some red pepper flakes.

5. Grilled Cajun Shrimp Tacos

Grilled Cajun Shrimp Tacos

These grilled Cajun shrimp tacos are a quick and easy dinner idea or paleo grilled recipes, ready in 30 minutes or less, while still packed full of smoky and spicy flavor! In the summertime, I’m all about quick and easy meals.

Actually, let’s get real, I’m always about quick and easy meals, but it’s especially true during the summer months. Seafood, in general, is a great option for a quick meal because it doesn’t take long to cook and can easily take on a lot of flavors. In fact, the right combination of herbs and spices can take any simple piece of seafood and elevate it from good to great.

For these Cajun shrimp tacos, I wanted to add a little extra kick so I decided to do a homemade cajun seasoning on them, but if you have a store-bought version you like that would work really well too.

4. Grilled Sausage and Sweet Potato Salad 

 Grilled Sausage and Sweet Potato Salad

Grilled Sausage and Sweet Potato salad with honey mustard vinaigrette is a delicious summer salad with a few of summer’s best vegetables. Sweet potatoes and red bell pepper are grilled and chopped, and tossed with sausage for a high protein and nutrient-dense dish that the whole family will enjoy!

Beer and sausage were the only 2 things he could come up with, and with a salad, we had to get creative. The original version he made several years ago has been in the vinaigrette which is super fun, but this is a cleaner version we still use today! One that we love is a summertime dinner or side dish.

I do not cook with pork sausage but use only chicken or turkey (feel free to use whatever type you prefer). Beer can also be added or omitted if you follow a gluten-free or Paleo diet; the end result will be a honey mustard dressing that is just as delicious!

3. Grilled Greek Lamb Skewers (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

Grilled Greek Lamb Skewers (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

These Greek Lamb Skewers are a simple recipe made with ground meat and spices. Throw the kebabs on the grill then pair them with a salad or yogurt dip for an easy BBQ dinner or paleo grilled recipes!

Summer means BBQ time and for us, that means getting some meat on the grill – whether it be steak, chicken, or in this case, lamb. Skewers (aka kabobs or kababs – I’m referring to all of them as the same thing) are a favorite because they’re so easy – put seasonings and meat in a bowl, combine, then put it on a stick and cook. I’m not sure it gets much simpler than that. This ground lamb recipe fits that exact bill.

There are traditional Greek flavors like oregano and garlic, as well as some cinnamon to add a little different flavor profile. They are delicious and really easy to pull together. And did I mention this recipe is gluten-free, paleo, and Whole30 compliant? No need to deprive yourself, friend.

2. Easy Bruschetta Chicken (Grilled or Baked)

Easy Bruschetta Chicken (Grilled or Baked)

Sing it with me: “Balsamic and chicken, tomatoes and basil … these are a few of my favorite things.” And what a coincidence! All of them feature prominently in Bruschetta Chicken, an easy, fresh summertime dinner that satisfies the pickiest of eaters and the busiest of chefs.

See below for tips to fit Whole30, paleo, and keto lifestyles. Frankly, it’s given us such tasty Italian-American staples as alfredo, chicken parm, cioppino, and, of course, Sunday Sauce with meatballs, so no disrespect to the motherland but I’m absolutely fine with this “bastardization.”

Q: Are grilled recipes suitable for a paleo diet?

A: Absolutely! Grilling is a fantastic cooking method for paleo enthusiasts. It allows you to cook lean meats, fish, and vegetables without the need for added fats or oils, keeping your meals healthy and flavorful.

Q: Can I use marinades and sauces for grilled paleo recipes?

A: Yes, you can! While many store-bought marinades and sauces contain additives and sweeteners that are not paleo-friendly, you can easily make your own using natural ingredients like fresh herbs, spices, citrus juices, and coconut aminos.

Q: How can I prevent the meat from becoming dry on the grill?

A: To prevent dryness, marinating your meat beforehand can add moisture and enhance flavor. You can also opt for cuts of meat with higher fat content, like chicken thighs or ribeye steaks, which tend to stay juicy when grilled.

Q: Are there any paleo-friendly alternatives to traditional barbecue sauce?

A: Absolutely! You can create a delicious paleo barbecue sauce by combining tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, coconut aminos, mustard, and spices. Adjust the flavors to your liking, and you’ll have a tasty, sugar-free option for your grilled meats.

Q: Can I grill vegetables on a paleo diet?

A: Grilling vegetables is an excellent way to enjoy them on a paleo diet. You can grill zucchini, bell peppers, asparagus, mushrooms, and even cabbage or romaine lettuce for a smoky and flavorful twist.

Q: How long should I grill seafood to ensure it’s cooked properly?

A: Seafood cooks quickly, so it’s essential to keep a close eye on it. As a general guideline, grill fish fillets for about 4-6 minutes per side, and shrimp or scallops for 2-3 minutes per side until they turn opaque and firm.

Q: Can I use fruit on the grill for paleo desserts?

A: Absolutely! Grilled fruits like pineapple, peaches, and watermelon can be a delicious and refreshing paleo dessert. They caramelize beautifully, intensifying their natural sweetness.
