Prep Time10 minutes Cook Time6 hours Total Time6 hours 10 minutes Servings4 people


1.5 lbs boneless chicken breasts cut in cubes

1 cup onion chopped finely

1 cup russet potatoes cut in ½ inch pieces

1 1/2 cups carrots chopped finely

1 1/2 cups celery chopped finely

15 oz can tomato puree

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 bay leaf

1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped

½ teaspoon garlic powder

2 cups chicken broth

1 cup frozen peas Reserve until ready to eat. Omit if Whole30™


Chop all veggies + prepare chicken. In slow cooker insert, stir all ingredients together except peas.

Cook on low for 6 hours. When ready to serve, stir in peas until defrosted (omit if strict paleo or Whole30™)

Stove Top Instructions:

Chop all veggies + prepare chicken. In a large pot heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add chicken in + sear (does not have to cook through). Add all onion, carrots + celery. Sauté for 5 minutes until fragrant and slightly softer.

Add all remaining ingredients. Stir to combine. Cook on high heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat so stew comes to a simmer + cook for additional 30 minutes.


Substitutions for this recipe:

Potatoes – You can sub in halved baby potatoes for this recipe. I have not tried sweet potatoes in this recipe, but I think they would become too mushy!

Peas – You can omit peas from this recipe. If you are doing a Whole30 you need to omit the peas to make this compliant.

Tomatoes – You can substitute homemade tomato sauce for tomato puree

Meat – You can substitute boneless, skinless chicken thighs for the chicken breasts in this recipe. You can also substitute beef for chicken in this recipe or also have a Healthy Beef Stew recipe.

Wine – A 1/3 cup of red wine adds a nice depth of flavor to this recipe – although it’s totally not necessary. If you are doing a Whole30 do not add wine.

Rosemary – If you don’t have fresh rosemary you can substitute the same amount of dried rosemary.
