Sweet Chicken and Veggie Stew (Paleo)

Sweet Chicken and Veggie Stew (Paleo)
Modified recipe from (thank you for this awesome recipe

Ive been having fun adding cinnamon to different recipes lately, ones where cinnamon seems like kind of an odd ingredient to add. This is one of them :) it adds this awesome sweet flavor, so yummy! I played around with the recipe from paleodietlifestyle and used what i had on hand plus the diffrent spices, we all really enjoyed it! Hope you guys do to :)

I have a Paleo chicken pot pie recipe that has a similar taste but with a crust on top... Yum!! I think its so great and so much fun that we can still make really tasty meals while using only natural ingredients! I just feel like God made food to be so much fun :) He is awesome! Heres the recipe!:

2 cups of cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works awesome!) shredded
2 T organic coconut oil
½ a large sweet Vidalia onion (Yum!) diced
3 cloves of garlic minced
¼ cup of almond flour (we used Trader Joes brand, has a little bit of a nuttier flavor than others we’ve tried, like that!)
2 cups of chicken broth or chicken stock (we used Better than Bouillon Organic Chicken)
1 bag of frozen mixed veggies (we used Trader Joes Organic Foursome, has peas, two types of corn and green beans). – note: we spilled half of the bag so we probably only ended up using ½ of the bag or so :)
½ cup of coconut milk (we used light coconut milk, but any kind is good I think!)
1 green onion diced
¼ tsp or less of cinnamon (sounds kind of strange but love this flavor in it!)
A dash of chili powder
A sprinkle of Morton’s Natures Seasoning  
A sprinkle of garlic powder
A sprinkle of Onion powder

1.) Cut your chicken into pieces.
2.) In a large saucepan over a medium heat, melt the cooking fat.
3.) Add the onions to the same saucepan and cook in the remaining juices. Once they have sautéed and begun to brown, add the garlic and cook for a few minutes together.
4.) If you wish to add a thickening paleo flour, do so now.
5.) Whisk in the chicken broth. At this point you will be able to tell if the stew is too thick. If so, feel free to add more broth or stock, or even just water. Do so slowly while continuing to mix
6.) Add in the vegetables and chicken
7.) Add seasonings
8.) Allow the stew to come to a simmer, and then cook on low, but still maintain the simmer.
9.) Cover and cook for approximately 15 minutes
10)  Stir in the cream or coconut milk and green onions.
11.) Cook for just about another 2 minutes and serve with avocado on top if that sounds good to you :) enjoy, yum!
