Are the cold days still lingering where you are? If so, this delicious stew will hit the spot.
This easy chicken soup is perfect comfort food for cold day. It’s creamy and filling, and loaded with protein and fiber thanks to hearty greens and chicken breast. And it definitely helps you stay keto.
It’s richly flavored with curry powder, ginger, and coconut, so it warms you up from the first bite.
Coconut oil is an underrated star in this recipe. Coconut oil has a controversial past, but we think it can be beneficial in a well-balanced, whole foods diet.
This recipe is also great because it sneakily adds in vegetables in the form of cauliflower rice. To make it as easy as possible, look for pre-riced cauliflower at the grocery store. You can usually find it either in the refrigerated produce section or the frozen veggie section.
I’m all about making my kitchen process as easy as possible – which means taking advantage of all the pre-chopped, pre-riced, pre-spiralized vegetables at the store. They usually are a bit more pricy, but worth it to me.
If you’d rather do your own, that’s totally fair. You do you!
As for hot sauce, I love Frank’s. But any brand with minimal ingredients (no junky, sugary fillers!) will do.
