Chicken Stew with Butternut Squash and Kale (Gaps, Paleo, Grain-Free)

Cruising for more recipes for my CSA veggie goodies I came across this gem... we also got a butternut squash this week... I hope my family loves soups... because I do!

This recipe was found at

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
2 yellow onions, minced (from my CSA)
4 cloves garlic, minced
 (from my CSA)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 2 teaspoons coconut flour (optional, but will help create a thicker stew)
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts

  • 4 cups butternut squash, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (from my CSA)
1 large head kale, cut into bite-size pieces
 (from my CSA)
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 300ºF. Melt ghee in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions to the pot along with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the thyme and coconut flour. Slowly whisk in the chicken stock and then scrape the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to release any browned bits.

Add the chicken breasts and squash and bring to a simmer. Cover the pot and place it in the oven for 1 1/4 hours (I like to use a crock pot)

Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Add kale to the water and boil for 7 minutes. Drain. 

Remove the pot from the oven and spoon out the chicken using a slotted spoon. Shred the chicken using two forks and then put the chicken back in the pot. Stir in the kale, cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in parsley and season to taste with remaining 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
