Servings: serves 6 - 8 1x


  • 1 Tbsp. ghee
  • 1 and 1/2 lbs. chicken breast, cubed
  • 4 cups potatoes
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 pinch thyme
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 12 Tbsp. heavy cream or full fat coconut milk, if desired


  1. Heat the ghee in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Once hot, add the cubed chicken and cook until browned, about 7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  2. To the pan, add the potatoes, onion, carrots and celery. Sauté for 8-10 minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
  3. Add the chicken back to the pot along with the tapioca starch, salt, pepper, paprika and thyme and cook for 2 additional minutes before adding the chicken stock.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes. The liquid should reduce a bit and the mixture should look thicker.
  5. Add a splash of cream or coconut milk for richness if desired. Serve!
