Spicy Chicken Pepper Soup

Chicken soup is one thing that needs no special occasion to make. Whenever I need a to comfort myself I make chicken soup, but one thing is for sure every time I try to combine different spices to make it more delicious. This time I am inspired from Portuguese piri piri sauce. So these chicken pepper soups have a Portuguese touch but as this sauce is bit too hot so I replaced chilly with black pepper and hope you will like this spicy tangy chicken pepper soup.

Chicken  bite size cube   2 cup cooked
Yellow bell pepper   1 cut in to chunks
Green bell pepper     1 cut into chunks
Whole black pepper  ½ tsp
Cumin  seed  whole   ½ tsp
Cardamom   1
Cinnamon     ½ inch
Clove              2
Vinegar          1 tbsp
Tomato sauce   1 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste  1tsp
Chicken seasoning cube  1
Olive oil     1tbsp
Salt         to taste
Lemon juice  1tsp
Cheese  1 small cube grated 


Soak whole black pepper, cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, clove in vinegar for 30 minutes. Then make a smooth paste. Keep aside. Now heat oil in a pan add ginger garlic paste, stir then add the chicken cubes and paste of vinegar and cumin and pepper. Mix well, then add the bell pepper chunks. Stir and cook for minute or two then add 2 cup of water, you can add more or less according to your choice. When it comes to boil add the seasoning cube and tomato sauce. Mix well. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes then add grated cheese and lemon juice (you can add more or less according to your choice). Put off the flame and serve hot. I hope you will love this spicy cheesy tangy chicken pepper soup.

Be Happy And Stay Healthy.

I enjoy chicken soup anytime too but never tried a Portuguese-inspired version. Interesting.
