Recipe: Paleo/Primal Crockpot Chicken Chili

It's getting to be that time of year again. When the weather cools, I get to thinking about soups, stews, and chili.

Here's a super easy chili recipe that takes almost no time to prepare, and is yummy, and makes for great leftovers to take for lunches for a few days afterwards.

Paleo/Primal Crockpot Chicken Chili


  • 1lb of ground chicken, turkey, beef, or lamb
  • One large onion
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic crushed and chopped
  • Green, Red, Orange, or Yellow bell peppers chopped, to equal 1 cup
  • Large can of petite diced tomatoes
  • Large can of crushed tomatoes or 1 quart of homemade tomato puree
  • 1-2T of honey (to cut the acid in the tomatoes) 
  • Chicken stock (I usually freeze my stock in ice cube trays, and I used 3 cubes = 6 tablespoons)
  • 1 cup diced zucchini
  • Spices: Cumin, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste

Here's the wicked hard instructions:

  • Through everything into the crockpot
  • Turn on low
  • Wait 8 hours.

See?  I know!!!

And it really is yummy.

I topped with a pinch of mozzarella cheese and some pickled banana peppers. That makes the dish more Primal than Paleo, but it was definitely YUM!
