Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless, diced
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 yellow pepper, cored and diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder or curry paste
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

Instructions
  1. In a large stock pot over medium high heat, place the coconut oil until melted.

  3. Add the onions, garlic, carrot, pepper, and celery and sauté for 5 minutes.
  4. Season with curry and tomato paste.
