Leftover turkey or chicken stew (HG, GF, LC, SF)

Always trying to find new ways to make our leftover turkey and chicken more interesting and still be easy, I LOVE this new recipe! It is surprisingly sweet, with no sweeteners at all! The mixtures of spices and vegetables with peanut butter makes it a unique and wonderful addition to your meal rotation!

Leftover chicken or turkey peanut stew. (HG, GF, LC, SF)

My hubby was getting tired of my Leftover chicken nacho stew because it has that taco seasoning spice, which turns out, I’ve been doing way too much of lol! Tacos are just so EASY! 😀 So I was on a mission to find something new and yummy for our leftovers. and here ya go! <3

In heavy pot, sauté  for 3 minutes:

  • 2 Tbsp Avocado oil (has high smoke point=healthier for frying)
  • 2 sweet onions chopped small
  • ¼ cup fresh ginger root, grated or chopped small
  • 1-2 Tbsp fresh jalapeno, minced or chopped small, to taste. (1 Tbsp Jalapeno is mild-medium heat.)

Stir in and fry 2 minutes or so:

  • 2 tsp sea salt (if your peanut butter is unsalted, use more, to taste)
  • 2 tsp chili powder.

Stir in, bring to boil, cover and simmer 25 mins:

  • 1 cup chicken stock (unsalted)
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 3 Tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cups thinly sliced carrots (I used my kitchen aid for everything!)

After 25 minutes, stir in 1 cup smooth sugar free peanut butter.

Then gently fold in 4-6 cups leftover chicken or turkey. Simmer 10 mins. You can chop the chicken small or leave in big chunks, I prefer big chunks, it falls apart less.

Gently fold in again if needed. We don’t want shredded chicken here! 🙂

Serve hot with slices of green onions. Or just eat as is. SO yummy!!!

This one has been adapted by me and others so many times, I will just site the last person I saw it from! kalynskitchen.com

Tip: If your oil separates and sauce is too thick and pasty, stir in ½ cup water and 1 tsp Apple cider vinegar. One time I used a different pot than my usual no-stick Rock casserole pot, and it separated. I had to add water and all kinds of stuff. Use something that the moisture dosn’t all evaporate and it won’t stick.

Tip: something I learned about jalapenos, they freeze really well! I freeze extra pieces of our jalapenos for next time instead of leaving them in the fridge to go moldy lol!

Tip: We always cook 2 chickens in a huge casserole dish so we have leftovers, and even some to freeze for easy meals later 🙂

    Hi Christine,
    I really appreciate all the work you have done on this site.. I am just confused aren’t there a lot of ingredients is this recipe that are high in salicylates?

    Thank you,

    • Christine says:

      Hi Diane! 🙂 Yes, vegetables have salicylates, apple cider vinegar does, etc. SF in the recipe stands for Sugar Free not Salicylate Free <3

      On the guaifenesin protocol, we don't have to worry about normal about or salicylates in foods. When we juice vegetables and fruits, it concentrates the sals, that's not a normal food amount. It's why tea and herbal supplements block the guaifenesin from working- not normal food amounts. It's too concentrated and our bodies don't digest out the sals as normal when it's concentrated. Does that answer your question?
