White Chicken AIP Chili (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

This hearty and comforting White Chicken AIP Chili comes together in 30 minutes, and it’s perfect for a delicious weeknight meal!

As Fall approaches (seriously, why does summer go by SO fast??), it’s starting to become soup season. While I love using the slow cooker or the Instant Pot to make my soups and stews, some recipes are just so quick and easy that you don’t need to pull out the gadgets. You just need the stovetop to pull together a delicious meal, and this White Chicken AIP Chili is one of those recipes.

White Chicken AIP Chili Recipe

I actually made this AIP Chili a while back when my mom was visiting me over last winter. I wanted to make some kind of soup for her, but my mom has rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune disease) so I like to cook her AIP recipes when she’s visiting. This is why AIP cooking is so near and dear to my heart.

This White Chicken AIP Chili came together super quickly and was so delicious, even without any kind of chili actually in the ingredients! The toppings really make this dish so definitely add some extra texture and flavors to the soup with some of your favorite garnish. My mom couldn’t stop raving about how much she loved it!

30 Minute Meals for the Paleo AIP Cookbook

I’m sharing this White Chicken AIP Chili recipe as a mini teaser for a community cookbook I contributed to: 30 Minute Meals for the Paleo AIP. I’m so excited to share this ebook, which contains 120 complete meal recipes that are:

  • 100% AIP compliant.
  • ready from start to finish in 30 minutes or less!
  • family friendly. All recipes serve 4 people.
  • made with “basic” ingredients that are budget friendly. There are no expensive pre-made store bought ingredients!

This community cookbook was put together by 40 bloggers, including myself, and is the brainchild of Jaime Hartman of Gutsy by Nature. We couldn’t be more proud of how amazing the book tuned out, filled with simple and easy recipes that anyone can follow!

The AIP diet, or the autoimmune protocol, means that every recipe is:

  • Gluten free
  • Grain free
  • Dairy free
  • Egg free
  • Nightshade free
  • Nut and seed free
  • Refined sugar free
  • Made from whole, nutrient-dense, unprocessed foods.

So, even if you aren’t following the AIP diet, the book may help you if you are looking to nourish yourself with anti-inflammatory foods on a budget and/or time-constraint!

Spinach and Chicken Paleo Stuffed Peppers (Whole30, Keto)

Not only are these Spinach and Chicken Paleo Stuffed Peppers Whole30 and keto-friendly, they are deliciously creamy and so fun to eat, even kids will love it!

Spinach Chicken Paleo Stuffed Peppers

Ever since you guys expressed how much you love my Pizza Stuffed Peppers, I’ve been looking to create another paleo stuffed peppers recipe that’s different but still full of flavor. Not only are stuffed peppers fun and easy to make, they are REALLY fun to eat, especially for little hands!

Spinach and Chicken Paleo Stuffed Peppers Recipe

This Spinach and Chicken Paleo Stuffed Peppers recipe came together by accident because I was thinking of ways to use up whatever meat and veggies we had left in the fridge. I honestly just threw everything together to come up with it, and it’s crazy but that’s how some of my reader favorite dishes are created!

Chicken and spinach are cooked in creamy coconut milk, combined with delicious spices that add a slightly cheesy and decadent flavor to the filling without dairy. It’s then thickened with tapioca starch and stuffed into bell peppers, and everything is baked together until the peppers are perfectly cooked!

Reheating Leftovers

If you end up having leftovers of this Spinach and Chicken Paleo Stuffed Peppers, you can just bake it up in the oven at 375 degrees until it’s heated thoroughly, about 15-20 minutes.

However, I’ve been so busy recently that I’ve just been using the microwave to nuke for 2 minutes. I’m honestly 100% okay with using the microwave, if it means I can still eat a healthy home cooked meal much easily when my plate is full (no pun intended!) on weekdays. As always, don’t let perfect be the enemy of good, especially when it comes to your health!

Mini Paleo Chicken Pot Pies

These Mini Paleo Chicken Pot Pies are packed with a delicious and creamy chicken filling, and it’s so fun to make! Even kids will love these cute mini pies.

Mini Paleo Chicken Pot Pies

One of the first trips my husband and I took together when we first started dating was to Dublin. We did all the touristy things like going to the the Guinness Museum and the Kilmainham Gaol, walked around the city, and ate a lot of meats, potatoes and beers (these were my full-on gluten days). It was so much fun and I still remember eating the most delicious chicken pot pie there at a dive bar. It was creamy, slightly salty, and so flavorful.

Honestly, I didn’t really enjoy the food in Ireland except for the chicken pot pie. So with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I decided to recreate it by making these adorable Mini Paleo Chicken Pot Pies.

I recently started cooking with cassava flour, and I’ve been enjoying using it in various recipes. It yields a texture that’s close to regular all-purpose flour, making it a great grain free option, and I love how great the crusts turned out in these Mini Paleo Chicken Pot Pies.

When you are making these, you’ll be tempted to fill up the crusts all the way, but make sure to leave a bit of room at the top so the filling won’t overflow as it heats up in the oven. If the filling does boil over no big deal. It won’t look as pretty but it’ll still taste delicious! It’s such a fun and cute recipe, and I’m sure kids would love them as well.

Ingredients

Pie Crust:

  • 1 cup cassava flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup cold grass fed butter or ghee
  • 1/4 cup cold water plus more if needed
  • 1 tbsp grass fed butter melted, or ghee

Filling:

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine cassava flour, tapioca starch, and sea salt.

  2. Add in the egg, cold butter, and water, and stir together with a fork until a dough forms. Knead well with your hands

  3. If the dough is too crumbly and dry, add more water a tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency. 

  4. Cover and place the dough in the refrigerator.

  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

  6. Heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat.

  7. Add onions and garlic, and cook for 1 minute until fragrant.

  8. Add in carrots and frozen peas and cook stirring for 5 minutes until they are softened. 

  9. Add shredded chicken, then pour in bone broth, coconut milk, and tapioca starch.

  10. Stir together and let the whole thing simmer for 3-4 minutes until the mixture is thickened and reduced.  

  11. Grease a 6 cup muffin tin with coconut oil. 

  12. Take out the pie crust dough from the refrigerator. Make 6 balls with the dough about 1 1/2 - 2 inches in diameter.

  13. Place each ball into a muffin cup. Use your hands to press the dough to the bottom and the sides of the cup, so you have a bottom crust. Make sure the sides reach the tops of the cups. 

  14. Add in the chicken filling to each pie crust. Make sure not to overfill it and leave about 1/8-1/4 inch of space from the top. 

  15. Place the rest of the dough between 2 parchment paper and roll it into a thin layer about 1/8 inch thick.

  16. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 6 3-inch circles. You can also use a similar sized cup or a cookie mold to stamp the circles. 

  17. Place each circle on top of the pie mixture and press down the sides to seal the pie. You don't have to seal it completely, but do the best you can. 

  18. Use a sharp knife to make an "x" on top of each pie. 

  19. Brush the top of pies with melted butter

  20. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, until the tops are golden brown. 

  21. Let the pies cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the muffin tin with a sharp knife. Enjoy immediately!
