2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon olive oil​

Recipe Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F and move a rack to the lowest position. Generously season the chicken with salt and pepper.

2. Place 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add half of the chicken and cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate. Repeat with another 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and the other half of the chicken.

3. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil to the pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for 3 minutes. Add the coconut flour and brown for 2 minutes.

4. Stir in the broth and wine. Add the sweet potato, celery root, squash, carrots, and bay leaf. Add the chicken to the pot and bring to a simmer. Cover and transfer to the preheated oven. Bake for 1 hour. Remove the bay leaf, garnish with the fresh parsley, and serve warm. Enjoy!
