Chicken, Sweet Potato and Apple Stew

6 WWPP Posted by 10 months ago 0 Comments

I can’t believe I’m about to say this but I miss Whole30! I’ve come to the conclusion that I thrive in a Choppedlike environment. Give me a handful of ingredients and I start to problem-solve,  and for some reason the constraint causes me to think more outside of the box.

So I decided that even though I’m not officially participating in Whole30 anymore I would use it as inspiration now and then. I rummaged though my fridge this morning to see what I had and came up with a pretty tasty and unique (at least I think so) stew.

Bowl of Chicken, Sweet Potato and Apple StewThe flavor combination of sweet potato, apple and chicken is almost perfect on its own. I just added a couple of spices to kick it up a notch and used almond butter as a thickener. It came together beautifully!

Here’s what I did…

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1-2 sweet potatoes, cubed (I used a giant one which totaled ~750g)
  • 1 apple, cubed (I used a granny smith ~250g)
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 2 cups chicken broth (I used homemade)
  • 2 tbsp almond butter (any nut butter would probably be fine)

Brown the onion and chicken together in a larger soup pot. Cut the sweet potato and apple while the chicken is cooking and add the cubes to the pot.

Add the cumin, allspice, and broth to the pot. Bring everything to a boil, stir in the almond butter until melted in then reduce to a simmer. Continue to cook for at least 30 minutes until the potatoes are soft and the stew thickens a bit.

That’s it!

I measured out about 6 1/2 cups but I’ll keep it at 6 to be conservative on our nutritional information.

It’s pretty impressive and very convenient if you live in an area where finding high quality meats is hard.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
