Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium heat. Add ghee. When ghee melts, add onions, ginger, and garlic and saute until onions are starting to soften, ~2 minutes. Add in chicken and saute until opaque on the outside, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Stir in spice mix and cook for 1 minute more. Pour stock (this recipe was written for the Instant Pot, so we recommend increasing liquid by 10-20% over listed amount to account for evaporation), aminos, tomato paste, and sweet potatoes over chicken. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a low simmer. Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes (depending on size).
  3. When stew is done, stir in peas and carrots and simmer for 1 minute more. Taste and season with some salt, if needed.
  4. Serve stew with cilantro on top. Enjoy!

Make

  1. Using the Saute function of an Instant Pot add ghee. When ghee melts, add onions, ginger, and garlic and saute until onions are starting to soften, ~2 minutes. Add in chicken and saute just until opaque on the outside, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Stir in spice mix and cook for 1 minute more.
  3. Pour a small amount of stock over the chicken, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan (be sure to get all of the browned bits up to avoid the burn error).
  4. Turn off the Saute function and stir in remaining stock, aminos, tomato paste, and sweet potatoes.
  5. Close and lock the lid. Set the pressure valve to 'Sealing'. Cook on manual / high pressure for 6 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes and then manually release any remaining pressure.
  6. When all of the pressure has released, remove the lid and stir in peas and carrots. Taste and season with some salt, if needed.
  7. Serve stew with cilantro on top. Enjoy!
