Product Review: Nature’s Palate

Perusing the aisles of the grocery store, we are often lured by attractively packaged and taste-tantalizing products. We see the words Organic and Natural and instantly think HEALTHY, but turning these products over to read the ingredients, we realize they’re full of industrial seed oils like canola, soybean and other vegetable oils, refined sugars, colours, chemicals and preservatives. Many of these ingredients are pro-inflammatory and certainly don’t have our health in mind.

While it’s nice to make your own condiments from scratch, it’s also nice to have convenient options for those crazy busy times in your life. Thanks to Nature’s Palate, these products completely take the worry out of wondering about undesirable ingredients. They’re super clean eats!

Nature’s Palate, a Toronto based company, offers a gluten-free, paleo-friendly product line with your health in mind. They have created 3 delicious sauces: Butter Chicken, Bacon Caesar Dressing and Honey Mustard Glaze. They’re delicious and I’m hooked. They, quite literally, had me at butter chicken.

And now for the taste test…

Baked chicken thighs with Nature’s Palate Butter Chicken sauce.

Butter Chicken Sauce

Just saying the words Butter Chicken gets my mouth watering. Butter chicken is one of my favourite indian dishes and this sauce truly satisfies my tastebuds, boasting some delicious indian spice combinations in a base of onion, tomatoes and New Zealand grass fed butter. That’s right, grass fed butter from New Zealand. It doesn’t get any better than that.

We enjoyed this sauce on some oven baked chicken thighs.

Bacon Caesar Dressing

This dressing rocks! It’s sweet, salty, tangy and bacony. Double smoked bacony. I found the best way to try the bacon caesar dressing was on a simple salad of mixed greens, cucumbers, shredded carrots, red onions and leftover chicken. This dressing is pretty much a staple now in our home.

Honey Mustard Glaze

This paleo friendly glaze is a delicious addition to the pantry. With a lovely heat from the mustard and the sweetness from the honey, this paired very nicely with a wild salmon filet. It was also delicious with some bun-less burgers. I could see it working nicely with a roast chicken and even a roast pork.

    FYI: Even though they have labeled the product as ‘vegan-friendly’, the honey mustard glaze from Nature’s Palate is definitely NOT vegan friendly, as it contains HONEY, which comes from bees and thus makes it not vegan. I realize you did not label the product (I have also contacted Nature’s Palate to let them know of their misleading labeling) but you might want to let your readers know about the error, although any self-respecting vegan would see the word ‘honey’ and right away realize that this product is not for them.

  • Came across your site as I googled “Nature’s Palate and Chicken Thighs” because I have both in my fridge. Do you remember what you did to make this dish with the butter chicken sauce and thighs?! Thanks!

    • Hi Amy! Super easy! I just brushed on the sauce in the last 5-10 minutes of baking the chicken thighs. You can also start them with the sauce, too and then brush on some additional in the last five minutes (just to make them extra saucy) :)
