Green Chicken Chili

And we’ve got Robyn back with another of her family’s favorite Paleo “warm you up” meal – sounds so good!

“I’ve been wanting to share this recipe for a long time – we discovered it shortly after Avery was born, and have made it several times since then. Unfortunately, life has a way of keeping me away from the computer lately. Between CrossFit, work, kids, cooking and cleaning, I have very little time for computer-ing. But, I hope that you like this as much as we did – it’s a nice way to warm up a cold night!”

Green Chicken Chili



2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1 Tbsp coconut flour
1 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 large onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp chipotle chile powder
1/2 lb spinach leaves
1 cup chicken broth
1 sweet potato, roasted and mashed
6 tomatillos, cut into chunks
1 14oz can diced green chiles


  1. Place chunked chicken breasts into a bowl with 1 Tbsp coconut flour and salt and pepper to taste. Mix until well distributed and it appears absorbed.
  2. Heat the oil in a dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and saute until onion is softened.
  3. Add garlic and saute for about 30 seconds.
  4. Turn heat to medium high and add chicken and spices. Cook until chicken has no more pink showing.
  5. Add the tomatillos and the green chiles, then add the broth and spinach and bring to a simmer.
  6. Reduce heat and allow to simmer about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, to give spinach time to cook down and liquid time to reduce.
  7. Add mashed sweet potato and mix well. Return to a simmer, serve!
