I got a request for a chicken chili recipe…and came across this on the Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations site. I turned it into a crockpot recipe, because I am 100% in love with my crockpot now that fall has arrived. I made it for a group of non-paleo friends and guess what, they loved it!!! Here’s my take!

Pumpkin Chicken Chili


  • 2 large chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 large can organic pumpkin puree
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 2 jalapenos, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup white cooking wine
  • 1 large can organic diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Heat coconut oil in skillet over medium heat and add onions, peppers, jalapenos, and garlic for approximately 5 minutes. Add in diced chicken until browned. Meanwhile in a crock pot combine chicken stock, wine, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, pumpkin, cocoa powder, and seasonings over low heat. Add chicken and diced vegetables to crock pot and stir to mix through. Let chili come to a simmer in crock pot and warmed, 1-2 hours.
