INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 lb organic, pastured, boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • ~2” fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 Tbsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp peanut or almond butter 
  • 1 (15 oz) can coconut milk 
  • 4 cups chicken bone broth
  • 1 red pepper 
  • 2 spiralized sweet potatoes

    Garnish: Fresh green onion + fresh basil or cilantro, lime juice and hot sauce

PREPARATION

  • Heat coconut oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Toss in garlic and ginger. Sauté for ~3-5 minutes until softened. Next turn off heat, then stir in turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, paprika and salt.
  • Add in coconut milk, almond or peanut butter, broth and chicken thighs. Stir well then bring to a boil. Make sure chicken thighs are covered by liquid. Turn down to medium low and simmer uncovered for ~30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.
  • Once chicken is cooked, remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a cutting board to shred with two forks.
  • Add shredded chicken back to pot then stir in sweet potato noodles and diced red bell pepper. Simmer for about 5-10 more minutes, until noodles are soft, but still al-dente. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  • Serve with fresh green onion, basil or cilantro, a spritz of lime juice and hot sauce to taste.
