Our family is following the Whole30 plan, and I’ve made a new post for each day, summing up our ups and downs along with the meals we had each day.  You can find those posts here: Thirty Days of Whole30 Recipes.

Up until now, I’ve included each day’s meals in the same post.  Well, this Paleo & Whole30 Chicken Cacciatore is so darned good that it had to have its own separate post.

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Season both sides of the chicken with the sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, and place it in the pan. I used my trusty Lodge 7.5 qt. Dutch oven.
  3. Sear the chicken until browned, about 5-6 minutes on each side.
  4. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  5. In the same pan, add the last tablespoon of coconut oil, onion, and pepper, and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes until the onion starts to become translucent. This is a good time to scrape the crispy chicken bits from the bottom of the pan and stir into the mixture so you get all of that flavor in your final dish.
  6. Add the mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes.
  7. Add the garlic and stir for 1 minute until fragrant.
  8. Add the capers and diced tomatoes.
  9. Add the chicken back to the pan along with the chicken broth.
  10. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165°F.
  11. If you’re following the Whole30 plan, serve this Chicken Cacciatore over some Garlic Smashed Potatoes with ghee, salt, and pepper. Yum!

    This looks so good! I plan to repost this in my latest blog post this week! Reminds me of what my mom used to make when I was young. This is also great since I’m starting Whole30 next week.
