This is my version of a spicy low-carb chicken stew I created while starting a flat belly cleanse. I don’t measure so the measurements are approximate – adjust to your taste! It just turned out so good I had to share!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 large zucchini, quartered and sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)
  • ⅓ (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons sofrito
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir chicken until juices start to run clear, about 4 minutes. Add zucchini, celery, onion, and garlic; cook and stir until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. 2 Stir diced tomatoes, chicken broth, sofrito, Cajun seasoning, and red pepper flakes into the pot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer soup until flavors blend together, 10 to 15 minutes.

  1. Will be making this again. I accidentally threw in 2 tbsp full of crushed red pepper ... added a bit of milk and some more broth to tone it down some. After we taste tested, we threw in some corn and butter beans from left overs, let it simmer a while longer and it was - Read more ...
  2. Never measured. Just seasoned according to how much or little chicken I use. Go easy on hot pepper ?? powder, to taste.
  3. I'm sure this recipe would have been very delicious. However, I put 2 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning and and it was way too much. I couldn't even eat it and neither could anyone else. From what I tasted it as it was cooking it was delicious but you definitely don't need that much Cajun seasoning
  4. Very good. A little spicy so I think next time I will use the mild can of green chilis.
  5. I made this a few times and I have found it exceptional! Sometimes instead of one medium size zucchini I use two small ones and instead of sofrito I use Pace salsa I may cut up a pepper or two tonight for a change since I don't eat celery ( personal taste ). I love - Read more ...
  6. Excellent! Made this as more of a soup than a stew. Doubled everything except the cajun seasoning and red pepper flakes and broth. Used 6 cups chicken broth. Added one carrot. Added corn kernels cut of two ears of corn. Added 1/3 cup brown rice (uncooked). Used a lot less cajun seasoning and red pepper - Read more ...
  7. I found this recipe after curiosity got the best of me. I thought surely there can't be a chicken stew right!?! There is and I must say that It's really delicious. I have made it twice and I have found that this recipe can suffer if one does not use the freshest ingredients possible the - Read more ...
  8. I make my own broth and so I added 3 1/2 cups rather than what was in the recipe also I didn't add the sofrito or red pepper flakes and it still came out delicious.
  9. Delicious... The tomatoes with green chilies brand I use tends to be pretty spicy so I left out the red pepper flakes and it was prefect. Non low carbers should make this and serve over rice or even a short pasta.. really easy too
