Keto Chicken and Chili Soup

Chicken Chili Soup
Chicken Chili Soup

I originally started the development of this chicken and chili soup to be a chicken version of chili con carne to serve over Cauliflower Rice, Cauliflower Mash or even Konjac ‘rice’. But while cooking it, I simply stopped the dish right there and thought, wow – this is a fantastic soup. This lovely dish yields three servings, but if you choose to cook it for more people, simply use the plug-in on the recipe below and increase the yield amount (which will automatically display new ingredient amounts for you).Its important to mention that you should use skinless, de-boned chicken thighs for this recipe. Do not be tempted to use chicken breasts. Thighs are far more succulent and will hold up well with the amount of cooking without drying out and leaving you miserable.

If you aren’t a fan of soup, scroll down to see how else you can change up the recipe to use as a chunky chicken sauce as I originally intended. Also, if you are cooking for the kids, adjust the amount of chili and cayenne pepper to your liking…

Instructions
  1. Cut the boneless, skinless chicken thighs into smaller, bite-size chunks. Prep all the remaining ingredients so you have them on hand.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large, deep-sided non-stick pan and fry the chicken pieces until golden and crispy on the outside before removing using tongs and setting aside. Do this in two batches so as not to overcrowd the pan. Be mindful that the chicken is still uncooked on the inside, so handle appropriately.
  3. NOTE: This step is not to "seal" the meat (because that is a myth). Its merely to enhance the flavour by caramelising the meat on the outside. This is called the Maillard reaction.
  4. Add the onions, garlic and chili to the pan and fry in the oil still remaining in the pan. Add the ground cumin, cayenne pepper and ground coriander seeds and fry lightly for a minute.
  5. Deglaze the pan by adding the white wine. Allow to sizzle and cook out using your spatula to scrape off any bits of chicken that may be stuck on the bottom.
  6. Once all the moisture from the wine has evaporated, then pour in the chicken stock. Bring the mixture to the boil.
  7. Once boiling, add the warm water to the pan, and return the chicken pieces to the mixture. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes until the mixture reduces by half. (After this period of 'poaching', your chicken pieces will have cooked through sufficiently).
  8. Add the sour cream and stir in well until it emulsifies into the mixture.
  9. Because we are reducing a mixture, we only season AFTER cooking. So, at this time, taste and adjust the soup with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  10. Serve the soup garnished with fresh chili slices, grated Cheddar and plenty of chopped coriander.

Recipe Notes

VARIATION: If you choose not to enjoy this dish as a soup, simply omit the addition of the water in step 7 and allow the mixture to reduce to a thicker sauce as opposed to a soup. You can enjoy it over Cauliflower RiceCauliflower Mash or Konjac Rice.
