This Southwestern Deconstructed Chicken Keto Soup Bowl is so good and bursting with flavor!
It seems like so many people I know are trying out the keto diet to help with weight loss these days. I checked it out a little and it is similar to the sugar free fast I did a while back, although it focuses more on a high fat diet and not just eliminating sugar.
Although I am no longer strictly following that sugar free diet, I have kept many of the healthy eating habits I picked up through that process. I continue to look for low carb meals with healthy ingredients, including full fats, to add to my meal prepping.

How to Make Keto Soup Bowls
This Southwestern Chicken soup is really easy to make and the deconstructed nature of this ketogenic recipe is so much fun and looks great when it is all put together in the bowl.

Rub the chicken with the salt and spices, add to the hot oil, skin side down.
Cook until 165 degrees, about 6-8 minutes per side.
While chicken is cooking, sauté the tomatillos in a tablespoon of butter, do the same with the sliced peppers.
Slice the serranos into coins, and the avocados into eights.

For each bowl, place a large dollop of the cauliflower in the middle, top with a sliced chicken thigh then arrange the vegetables beside it.
