Chicken and Vegetable Soup
CarbsPerServing:51 total recipe, excluding artichokes and bacon Effort:Easy
5 skinless boneless chicken breast -- cooked 1 cup onions -- chopped 1 cup celery -- chopped Cooked chopped bacon as you like 1 pint heavy whipping cream 1 teaspoon minced garlic 3 cans chicken broth -- (3 to 4) 1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seed 1 1/4 cup chopped cilantro 1 can chopped artichoke hearts 2 tablespoons capers -- or more 2 cups kale -- cut in half, then sliced
How to Prepare: This recipe is mostly low carb and can be varied according to your needs and taste. It is very meaty and rich. Try several different versions with different meat and vegetables. Adjust the heat as needed throughout the recipe to keep it simmering but donā t let it get dry and burnt.
It is best to prepare the meat first so you are ready when the time is right. I like to grill up several boneless and skinless chicken breasts and a few green onions for a smoky flavor as the main ingredient. Start with a large pot. Put in enough olive oi l and/or butter to cover the bottom and heat. Next add chopped onion and celery stalks. Let this cook until translucent. Then add seasonings like dried or fresh rosemary and cilantro, and parsley. Then add some dried fennel seeds. Amounts as you wish.
Next add about as much chopped up and fried bacon as you desire. I like to buy the pre-cooked packages at the store. Let is cook over a medium heat. Add the meat (chicken in this case). Then put in about a cup of white or red wine. Next add two to four ca ns of chicken broth and let it simmer some more. Last, you can pour in a pint of heavy cream and stir it in. I like to chop up some fresh kale or other greens into bite sized pieces and throw them in last then turn off the heat. You can use Italian sausag e instead of chicken and Iāve also tried chopped up lamb or beef with good results. Again, adjust to your own diet or taste. Iāve added a small amount of capers and a can of artichoke hearts (chop the artichoke hearts into big chunks)
