{Note from Jessica: Today’s post is shared by my sweet friend Renee, author of Raising Generation Nourished. We became friends several years ago and I am continually impressed with her desire to help change the world, starting with our newest generation. Real food has to be core of our health and should start in the womb. Considering this is the first time in history that our children are expected to die before us, something HAS to change. I’m honored to call her a friend. I hope you’ll stop by her site, Raising Generation Nourished, and say hello!}

This Slow Cooker Paleo Chicken Stew is sure to become one of your family’s favorite meals!

I really love to spend the majority of my winter kitchen time warming up the house with the oven or stovetop for dinnertime.

As my family has gotten bigger, school ages have begun, and schedules get busier however, I don’t always have time to make an elaborate oven roasted dinner on weekdays.

Enter my slow cooker!

So here is my goal with slow cooker meals. Slow cookers are all about the convenience factor, right? If it is slow cooker day, I want to literally dump every ingredient in and be done with it. No other fussing around with cooking other ingredients – pour it all in and turn it on.

Making Your Slow Cooker Paleo Chicken Stew

This Slow Cooker Paleo Chicken Stew took less than 10 minutes to get into the slow cooker! How’s that for minimal hands on time?!

I am a big fan of using some sort of squash in my stew broth base. I started doing this a few years ago while making my traditional autumn chicken stew using some roasted acorn squash. It not only makes the texture creamy without added dairy or grain based flours, but it bumps the nutrition profile up – and really gives it a happy color!

Your Slow Cooker Paleo Chicken Stew will be ready when you are and trust me, dinner will be amazing!

If you don’t already have a slow cooker, here are a few recommendations, including my favorite, the Instant Pot:
