Paleo & Whole30 Chicken Cacciatore

12 Feb

Just because our Whole 30 challenge is over doesn’t mean we aren’t still eating mostly Whole 30.  It just means there are once again paleo baked goods in my house 🙂  This is an easy flavor packed recipe that you will love!

Paleo & Whole30 Chicken Cacciatore

Paleo & Whole30 Chicken Cacciatore


Olive oil

4 pounds of bone in skin on chicken (split breasts and thighs would be ideal, I used all split breasts because they were out of all natural thighs at the store)

1 yellow onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 yellow bell pepper, chopped

3-4 cloves garlic, minced

10 ounce package baby Bella mushrooms

1 cup chicken stock

28 oz can diced tomatoes

Kosher or sea salt


1 tbl. + 1 tsp. dried oregano

2 tsp. dried parsley


Season all sides of your chicken liberally with salt and pepper.  Coat the bottom of a large pot (with lid!) or dutch oven with olive oil and heat over medium heat.  When hot add your chicken (work in batches that fit in the pot) and sear 5 minutes on each side.  Set seared chicken aside.  Add the onion, peppers, and mushrooms to the pot, season with a little salt and pepper, and sauté for 5 minutes.  Add garlic and sauté for another 3-5 minutes.  Deglaze pot with chicken broth and let vegetables simmer in broth for 5-10 minutes.  Add the tomatoes, oregano, parsley, and seared chicken to the pot.  Cover and simmer over lower heat for 40 minutes.
