Creamy Icelandic Chicken Soup

If you’re looking for the best creamy chicken soup you’ll ever make-you’ve come to the right place. When someone says “this is the best _____ I’ve ever had!” it becomes an absolute must try for me. That’s how this Icelandic chicken soup was born (I saw a TikTok and was sold). If you’d like to follow along a video tutorial, you can find that here.

Although it does have a few steps the good news is that it’s very easy to make!

  4. Remove chicken from pan, shred, and set aside
  5. Place bell peppers, tomatoes, onion, and garlic cloves in a tray. drizzle with oil and season with salt and seasoning
  6. Roast for 40 minutes or until vegetables are tender and develop color. You can broil a few minutes at the end to add more flavor
  7. Pour all vegetables into a large pot and add more seasoning, chili sauce, and Thai red chili paste. Cook for a few minutes until pastes are toasted
  8. Top with chicken stock and any leftover chicken juices. Bring to a boil, turn heat low, and simmer gently for 15 minutes.
