Paleo Fall Harvest Stew

Happy Monday, lovelies! Hope your weekend was fantastic. I had the honor of standing up in one of my best friend's weddings on Friday, and the rest of the weekend was spent catching up with some of my dearest college friends. We spent all day Saturday laying around my apartment, watching movies and chatting, only leaving twice to get food. So much fun, and much needed!

Let's ease into the week with something delicious yet simple to make, a fall harvest stew! Once again, you get to use your trusty crock pot for this meal! I loved the addition of the apples and apple cider in this stew, it really gave it a slightly sweet/savory  flavor and the squash and sweet potatoes made it very filling.

2 lbs chicken breasts
2 cups cubed, peeled sweet potatoes
2 cups cubed, peeled butternut squash
1 cup cubed rutabaga
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped
2 cups apple cider (make sure only ingredient is apples!)
2 cups vegetable stock
1 Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  1. Add chicken to bottom of slow cooker.
  2. Add all other ingredients on top of chicken and gently stir to just to combine.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through.
  4. Carefully remove chicken, shred with a fork, then return to the stew.
