A delicious, French-style meal loaded with nutrition from organic veggies and chicken. It can be dairy and grain free if you so choose, or add those back in if you like!


  • 1 tablespoon healthy fat – either olive oil, coconut oil, butter, or ghee
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 leeks, chopped
  • 1 package mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 organic free range chicken meat (white or dark, doesn’t matter), diced (I get mine at Costco (though I’m not sure it’s free range) and Kroger (Simple Truth brand is Free Range!)
  • ½ cup white wine or homemade chicken stock (I used chicken stock as I’m staying off wine on the GAPS diet)
  • 1 cup all natural coconut milk (I buy this one or make my own)
  • Optional: 1 TBS arrowroot powder (to thicken it up)
  • Optional: nitrate-free, uncured bacon or turkey bacon (I buy this one)
  • {Spices}
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 12 teaspoons cumin
  • 12 teaspoons coriander
  • 12 teaspoons paprika
  • 12 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 12 teaspoons dried cilantro or other favorite herb (I love Herbs de Provence)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (I love Himalayan Pink Salt)
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves minced garlic (or more to taste, add at the very end for maximum nutrition)


  1. Throw your fat into the skillet (I use a cast iron skillet like this one) as it’s the healthiest with no toxins or chemicals) and warm the skillet to medium heat.
  2. Add the onions and saute until golden brown.
  3. Add the chicken, chicken stock and all the spices – this is my husband’s secret trick to making very flavorful dishes. When the spices are sauteed with the meat, the flavor is much richer. (I like to cook my meat in broth and slowly on medium heat – makes it much more tender and it’s much healthier, preserving the nutrients of the meat).
  4. Add the rest of the veggies and coconut milk and arrowroot powder.
  5. Cover with a lid and let the steam cook all the ingredients, lifting the lid several times to stir the food so it is cooked evenly. If you find it’s too juicy, take the lid off so the juice can evaporate, and/or add more arrowroot powder. During that time, add in your garlic. Done!
