Hello healthnuts. So Winter is finally here and I have got the
perfect comfort food recipe for this weather. It’s My oil-free chicken soup. For most of us
Winter is the best time of the year with all the holidays and festivals and loads and loads
of high calorie treats. It is a fact that we tend to eat more during
winters. Various
phenomenons have been attributed to this fact. But the one that makes the most sense to me
is that eating more raises our body temperature which can be quite desirable in chilly winters. And that’s what makes you crave for your favourite
comfort food which are mostly comforting and warming but also sometimes super high in calories. So today I bring to you my favourite
comfort food, classic chicken soup. Trust me this is the best homemade chicken
soup ever. This fits right into a high protien low carb
diet. Or if you are on a soup diet,
you can safely have this for your lunch or dinner. If you are a vegetarian, you can also check
out my oil-free vegetable soup recipe for weight loss by clicking on the card up top
or the link down belowin the description box. One serving of this oil free chicken soup
is under 200 calories only. So without any further delay let’s get straight
into the recipe. You will need about 200-250 gms of chicken
with bone. I like to marinate the chicken with just some
lemon juice and salt for about 30-40 minutes. This gives a nice flavour to the broth
and also tenderises the chicken. But you can skip this step if you are short
on time. Wrap it with a cling wrap and put it in the
refridgerator for about 30 mins. After 30 mins, take
the chicken out and place it in a pressure cooker. Throw in 1 cup of sliced red onions, 4-5 cloves
of crushed garlic, half a inch ginger thinly sliced. Add in some salt and some freshly
cracked black pepper, add in 1 teaspoon of light soy sauce. Lastly pour 3 cups of water and give it a
quick stir. Cover the lid and place the pressure cooker
on high flame. After the 1st whistle, lower the flame and
let the chicken cook on low heat for another 8-10 minutes. After 10 minutes, switch off the gas and open
the lid once all the steam has released. Take out only the chicken pieces in another
container and let them cool down. In the meanwhile, finely chop some green onions
or spring onions and a small stalk of celery. I have
also taken some frozen sweet corn kernels here. Now, Once the chicken pieces are cool enough
to touch, start shredding the flesh, just like this. Now switch on the gas again and addthe
shredded pieces back into the broth. Also add the celery and the sweet corn kernels. Give it a good mix and let it come to a boil. Next I am taking 2 tsp of cornflour and adding
a little water to it to make a smooth paste. Now add in this cornflour paste to your broth
and give it a good stir. This will thicken your soup to give it a more
restaurant like texture. But you can totally skip this step if u like
clear soup more. Next in a separate bowl, lightly beat 2 egg
whites and pour it into the soup. Stir quickly in cicular motions as soon as
pour the egg white in. This will form thin egg white strands in your
soup just like the ones we see in restaurants. Let it come to a boil. Finaly, add the sping onions. Just keep some
aside for garnish. check for seasoning. Add more salt or pepper as per your taste
and that is it guys. Your delicious restaurant quality chicken
soup is ready. Serve it in a bowl and garnish
with some more spring onions. Now curl up under that blanket and enjoy your
chicken soup while watching my other videos on youtube. Do give this a try and let me know how it
