Summer is over and that means we dive into the recipes that match all of the cozy colors of fall! This Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Stew recipe only takes a few minutes to prep and all you need to make it is a slow cooker!

Take out your slow cooker and optionally line it for easy clean up. You’ll be adding all of your ingredients right into your cooker so lining it will make it that much easier.

Add in it 2 pounds of chopped up chicken breast, 1 can of drained & rinsed chickpeas, 1 1/2 pounds of chopped up sweet potatoes, 8 ounces of baby or chopped carrots, 1 cup of frozen corn, 1 can of fire roasted diced tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 2 teaspoons of ground cumin, 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1 teaspoon of ground allspice, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, 2 tablespoons of bbq sauce, 1/2 chopped up white onion, and 4 cups of chicken bone broth.

Mix all of the ingredients for your slow cooker sweet potato stew up good.

Put your lid on and cook this on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. If you’re around, give your sweet potato stew a mix every hour.

I usually portion this one into 8 servings. Each serving is around 460 grams.
