“Spicy Chicken Soup with a hot and spicy chicken stock which taste so spicy. This soup warms our body and soul”
Spicy Chicken Soup is one of the easiest soup you could ever make. Not only this soup is hearty and filling but is highly nutritious as well. I personally make this for lunch and have it with some breadsticks.
Toasted bread would be perfect with this soup as well. Garlic bread will be yummy too. You need some kind of spongy bread to soak up the creamy goodness.
You can add more vegetables in this soup. Like cauliflower, zucchini to make it more whole some. You can serve this soup with my keto 90 second bread for much more filling meal.
EASY AND FAST HOMEMADE CHICKEN SOUP RECIPE
Start by sautéing the vegetables in oil. Add the chicken stock, herbs, spice powders, tomato puree and stir. Heat until it comes to a boil, then turn it down to a simmer. Add the chicken and warm through. Done.
You can use boneless chicken cubes. So you don’t have to bother removing the bones from the chicken soup. Use chicken thighs instead of breast. Since breast will go stringy and rubbery while thighs stays nice and juicy.
How to Make Chicken Stock in a Pot:
- Take 1 kg chicken with bones.
- Wash it well and add it into a large pot.
- Add in salt to taste, any herbs as you like. Parsley, oregano, mint.
- Add in whole peppercorns and bay leaf.
- Add in onions and carrots.
- Boil this for 40 mins till the chicken is cooked and the broth is flavourful.
- Strain this stock.
- Remove chicken from the bones and use in the soups.
- The stock can be used in soups or stored in fridge for later.
How to Make Chicken Stock in a Pressure Cooker:
- Take chicken with bones and wash well.
- Take it in a pressure cooker.
- Add salt to taste
- Add in chicken stock powder or chicken stock cubes.
- Cover and pressure cook for 2 whistle.
- Let the steam escape by itself.
- Open the cooker, strain the stock.
- Use chicken in soups.
WAYS TO LOWER CARBS IN SOUPS AND STEWS
- Choose low carb vegetables.
- Use a smaller amount of higher carb vegetables like onions, garlic.
- Add more meat than veggies.
