Could this be made in an Instant Pot?
I have not tested this, so I am not sure of the exact settings but you should definitely be able to.
I simply love this recipe.! I used boneless chicken thighs which shredded and broke down during cooking. Made a wonderful, thick stew that tasted fabulous over the spag. squash. This is definitely a keeper and a great recipe for company even if they do not eat paleo!!Thanks
Woohoo so glad you loved it.
THanks for telling me B-fit, i love this recipe
The B-fit(er) experiment
The little cave girls even loved this and they usually don't care for spaghetti squash
Enjoy Toni, I love that sauce
We did have leftovers… until I ate them for lunch. :-) And I still have leftover sauce that I will probably use for meatballs or burgers.
ok, good to know. Thanks!
Courtney, it would work in the crock pot but the flavors wouldn't be as good and the chicken wouldn't have that yummy crisp
This looks delish! I'm putting this on the menu this week. I'm kind of in love with my crock pot though. How do you think this would do in the crock?
this may be a dumb question, but is it whole cloves or ground?
Awesome Toni, hope you have leftovers, the sauce tastes even better the next day
Cave-hubby made this for dinner tonight… PHENOMENAL!!!
Tine it is not paleo but if you click 4 lines above the picture where it says here it will take you straight there
Could you give us the Vinarterta recipe PLEASE!!!
Trixie, I have something in the works don't worry. Carol it is so great to hear from you, glad your well, stop being such a stranger. Hope you all enjoy this recipe once made
Looks awesome, can't wait to try it!
Thanks for the tip, Pip! I might try it that way!
That vinarterta recipe could easily be made with almond flour, since it's a spongecake, you could directly substitute almond flour for the all-purpose flour and it will be just fine weight wise. Still not totally paleo, but at least it's not grained filled? Or you could go one step further and sub out the sugar for stevia and I bet it would still be really good!
Wow. This looks and sounds absolutely amazing. I love that combination of spices in there! I will be trying this soon. Thanks!
It's Carol. I took a break from FB. Im currently studying to be a personal trainer (woooo). Just stopping by and letting you know I come by your blog everyday or every other day. Hope everything is good on your end.
