Fruited Chicken Stew (AIP/Paleo) is one of those set-it-and-forget-it crockpot recipes, making it easier to eat healthfully. A bit savory with a touch of sweetness, it hits all the right notes.
Is it a soup? A stew? It’s really somewhere in between, so I’ll let you decide what to call it. I landed on stew, but my daughter decided on “st/oup.” Whatever. I really like it, and even better the next day!
OK, but hold up a minute. You might be wondering what in the world fruit is doing in a stew… I know. It sounds unusual, but being on a healing diet can be boring. I would like to entertain us (you AND me!) by trying different flavor combos to keep things interesting. It can be fun to mix things up by putting chicken and butternut squash in the same pot with raisins, lemon, and apple juice!
Best of all, this recipe is EASY. I love recipes done in a crockpot (I use this kind). You place almost all the ingredients in the pot, and cook it on low for 3 hours. Add a few more things, and cook another 30 minutes. Done. BAM.
Other Chicken St/oups
If this idea isn’t really grabbing you, here are a few more chicken soups/stews for you to explore:
- “Pozole” Verde – A Mexican favorite, made AIP
- Hearty Chicken Soup – Creamy, and oh-so-satisfying
- Creamy Lemon Chicken Soup – Apparently I can’t keep fruit outta there
- Italian Wedding Soup – Meatballs, and a surprising stand-in for pasta
It is my hope that, through these recipes, you can find some new foods to try and love. Healing does NOT have to be boring! Try new things. And enjoy this ride called life.
As always, I’m wishing you great love and deep healing.
P.S. There also happens to be an awesome chili recipe in my mini e-cookbook, Simply Flavorful (only $6.97!), which you can find right here. Thanks for helping to keep the lights on in Wendi’s AIP Kitchen! 🙂
