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.
