chicken

"The history of chickens (Gallus domesticus) is a bit of a puzzle. They were first domesticated from a wild form called red junglefowl (Gallus gallus), a bird that still runs wild in most of southeast Asia, likely hybridized with the grey junglefowl (G. sonneratii. That occurred probably about 8,000 years ago. Recent research suggests there may have been multiple origins in distinct areas of South and Southeast Asia, including North and South China, Thailand, Burma and India." - From about.com

Most animals we eat today cannot truly be called "Paleo" as most are domesticated versions of the real animals our ancestors would have eaten.  Still, compensation has to be made, this has to be practical.   Free range chicken is what's available.  

Free range chicken, slow roast in the oven overnight, in oranges, dates onion and carrot.
Served with pineapple and bacon.

I'll make a soup with the remains and the juice.
