New Recipe: Tomato & Mustard Chicken Stew

12 Jan

This lovely little recipe comes courtesy of the Paleo Recipe Book (with just a few little changes).

I really love cooking food daily and use the cutting and prepping veggies to wind down from long days at work and tough workout sessions. However, there are days when work runs late, you’re just absolutely shattered from your workout or maybe you just couldn’t be assed. Either way, this is when I find so many people come unstuck. I hear client after client tell me that it’s just too hard to maintain healthy eating patterns with their busy lifestyle. Well I’m here to tell you IT’S NOT THAT HARD. In order to make my eating plans work I always set myself up a database of recipes that I can whip up at a minutes notice or can freeze to eat later. My tomato and mustard chicken is one of these recipes.


1 Chicken

2 onions

1 can tomatoes

Dried thyme

3 Bay leaves

Chilli powder

1/3 cup white wine

1/4 cup homemade mustard


Avocado oil (you could probably use another oil that is more stable at high temperatures)

Sea Salt and Pepper to taste


1. Cook chicken with garlic until almost cooked through. Set aside

2. Cook onion until softened (about 5 mins) Add tomatoes, thyme, bay leaves, wine and chilli powder. Bring to a boil then simmer for 40 minutes.

3. Add the mustard and combine well. Simmer for another 10 minutes until mixture has thickened.


I added some of my roasted veggie salad from last nights dinner and turned this into lunch. This recipe made four servings, so I kept one for tomorrow and put the other two in the freezer. Now the next time I need a quick meal I can grab it from the freezer, add some salad and go.
