Chicken Soup for the Soul

So I had some leftover concentrated chicken stock from the last time, bacon bits and a fresh batch of Chicken drummies.

Since it's winter, I reckon theres no better time then to make a nice pot of Keto-friendly soup to warm the cockles of our hearts.

Bacon - chopped up into bits
250g - Chicken hearts (sliced open and cleaned of any coagulated blood)
1.5kg Chicken drumsticks
3 Smoked Kranskys
Mirepoix - Your typical chopped onions, carrots and celery
1 Bulb of garlic deskinned and smashed with the flat side of your cleaver
1 Can crushed tomatoes
1 Can Sweet Corn Kernels
1 ~ 1.5 litres chicken stock
3 medium sized bay leaves
Pouring cream, salt and pepper to taste

Sautee your bacon from cold to render out fat
Add Mirepoix and garlic and heat till veggies have wilted
Add can of tomatoes and stir fry till caramalised.
Add stock and bring to simmer on high heat.
Add bay leaves
Add corn kernels whenever you desire
Add raw chicken drumsticks and chicken hearts and continue to simmer till cooked
Slice and add Smoked Kranskys
Simmer for around 30~45 minutes on medium high heat till vegetables turn soft.
Add pouring cream and heat for further 5 minutes just before serving.
Serve with crusty bread, pasta or rice (all of which are not keto-friendly though :( )
