Why Chicken, chorizo and tomato soup?
What is better than a meal that is fast, simple and full of flavour?
With good quality ingredients, a delicious meal can be served with simple methods and few steps.
This is one of my favourite soups to make when I am stuck for time but want to enjoy a flavour packed meal. Good quality stock is essential in this soup to achieve a well developed flavour, as is a good quality, spicy, salty and smokey chorizo.
To make this soup a meal to remember, I like to serve it with olive tapenade and black olive sour dough.
1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
500ml good quality chicken stock
1 large chicken breast, diced
1 chorizo, diced
1 spanish onion, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
¼ tsp smoked paprika
a pinch chilli flakes
2 tbs olive oil
black olive tapenade, to serve
basil leaves, to serve
olive bread, to serve
Place the tomatoes and stock in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and boil for 2 minutes. Season and puree in blender or with a hand blender until smooth.
Return to the saucepan and keep warm.
In a bowl toss together the chicken, chorizo, onion, garlic, smoked paprika and chilli flakes and season.
Meanwhile heat oil in a large frypan over high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring until golden and crisp.
Divide the tomato soup amongst warm bowls and top with the chicken and chorizo.
If using top with olive tapenade and basil leaves.
