Easy 6-Ingredient Paleo & Whole30 Chicken Stew

I had zero time to plan meals this past weekend.  I didn’t even get a chance to grocery shop. Our fridge is looking pi-ti-ful. Breakfast is covered, thanks to Larabars, Granny Smith apples and pre-sliced carrot chips with guacamole.  Lunch? That’s a whole different story. Since I work close to home and my husband works from home, we usually eat lunch together at our house. Unfortunately, none of the local restaurants are Paleo and Whole30-friendly, so eating out wasn’t an option either. I scrounged around in our understocked fridge for ideas. Luckily, I had some pre-cooked chicken breasts, and this Paleo and Whole30 Chicken Stew came to life in a jiffy!

This is such a quick and easy stew to make, it’s so tasty you’d never know it only calls for six ingredients (plus a little salt and pepper)!

If I had celery, I would have added it too.

      I would say 4 at the most. We had larger servings since we weren’t having it with bread or any other sides.

    Does the chicken have to be already cooked ?

      You can use uncooked chicken. Just make sure it reaches at least 165 degrees in the middle.

    Added additional spices and veggies and still thought it was very bland. I am a huge chicken soup person and am currently on whole 30.

    Thank you soooo much for sharing this recipe. I did add celery and a healthy dose of garlic. I also added a dash of cayenne pepper. It was amazing!
