This Hearty Chicken Stew is bountiful in colorful veggies and a special gut-nourishing sauce that makes it irresistible. I’ve also included a vegan option if chicken isn’t your thing. Either way, it is a hearty meal that will leave you satisfied!

A red crockpot is filled to the brim with colorful vegetables and free-range chicken, fresh parsley is sprinkled across the top and lays on the counter around the pot. Next to the pot is a fresh bunch of orange baby carrots and some silver spoons for serving

⁣⁣Including an adequate amount of animal protein in my diet helped me heal my gut and recover my health over a decade ago (preferably meat that is grass-fed, free-range and raised in a healthy environment). That’s why this recipe features my favorite free-range chicken from The Bare Bird.

Everyone has different needs, different genetics, and different metabolisms. For me, I feel my best when I eat sufficient low-allergen protein. This stew is an easy way to incorporate more meat, especially if you don’t like to eat it on it’s own. And for those who want, I’ve included a vegan option to replace the meat altogether. Do what works best for you.

I recommend making this one on the weekend so it’s ready to go for busy weeknights ahead. This recipe makes an enormous batch, yet I still usually double it, since it freezes so well (those pre-frozen portions are a *lifesaver* on busy/tired days!)

Don’t bother peeling your veggies (bar the zucchini) – there’s loads of nutrition in those peels!
