Chicken, Kale and Sausage Stew

SERVES 4 | PREP:  20 minutes | SLOW COOK:  6 hours (Low) or 3 hours (High) | TOTAL: 6 hours, 20 minutes

Fennel and lemon are frequently paired up—they just seem to like each other a lot. Use a mortar and pestle to crush the fennel seeds, or place them in a plastic bag and roll over them with a rolling pin.

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
4 cups Whole30-compatible chicken broth or Chicken Bone Broth
1 can (14.5 ounces) Whole30-compatible re-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
1 large yellow onion, cut into thin wedges
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest, plus extra for serving
1 1⁄2 teaspoons fennel seeds, crushed
8 ounces Whole30-compatible smoked kielbasa or chicken-apple sausage, sliced into 1⁄2-inch pieces
2 cups packed chopped fresh kale

IN a 6-quart slow cooker combine the chicken, broth, tomatoes, onion, garlic, lemon zest, and fennel seeds.
COVER and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or on high for 3 to 31⁄2 hours. Add the sausage and kale. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes or until the sausage is heated through and the kale is wilted.
SERVE, topped with additional lemon zest if desired.
