Chicken Hotpot

So, after a fairly hectic and sometimes un-Paleo weekend, I have crash landed into Monday again!

It is a horrible damp evening here so comfort food is definitely the order of the day for dinner!

This recipe is actually one of my M.I.Ls and didnt need much tweaking so its going to be a firm resident on our menu from now on!

Serves 3
3 x chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
1 x medium onion chopped
2 x garlic cloves chopped finely
4 x pieces of bacon sliced
3 x carrots peeled and sliced
1 x parsnip peeled and sliced
2 x sweet potato sliced finely
1 x litre of chicken stock
1 tbs coconut oil

Heat the oil in a pan and cook the bacon, remove from the pan
Add chicken and cook in coconut and bacon oil in batches until browned, remove from pan and set aside with bacon
Add onion and garlic to pan and cook for 2 -3 minutes
Return bacon and chicken to pan and add chicken stock.
Add carrots and parsnips and bring to the boil. Reduce to simmer for 15 mins.
Add sliced sweet potato to the top of the pot for last 10 minutes.
Cook until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender.
