Chicken Mulligatawny Soup - A Gordon Ramsay Favorite

Tonight on Masterchef one of the contestants made Chicken Mulligatawny Soup. Gordon Ramsay’s response while eating it was that when he gets home he’s going to have his mum make him some Chicken Mulligatawny Soup! This is a crockpot recipe that takes 5 hours and 35 minutes. Serves 6


2 stalks celery, finely chopped (1 cup)
2 carrots, finely chopped (1 cup)
1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled and finely chopped ( 2/3 cup)
1 medium onion, chopped ( 1/2 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 cups water
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size pieces
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1 tablespoon olive oil Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup uncooked basmati rice
1 cup unsweetened light coconut milk
Crushed red pepper (optional)


In a 4- to 5-quart crockpot, (you can use a crockpot liner for easier clean up) add in the celery, carrots, apple, onion, and garlic. Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder, the ginger, coriander, cumin, cardamom, turmeric, and cayenne pepper. Pour in the broth and the water. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 hours. In a resealable plastic bag, place chicken pieces, flour, and 1½ teaspoons curry powder; seal bag and shake to coat chicken with the flour mixture. Chill in refrigerator until needed. 

In a large skillet, brown coated chicken in hot olive oil over medium heat, stirring often. Add three to four ladles of the cooking liquid from the crockpot to the skillet; stir until thickened and gravylike, scraping bottom of skillet to incorporate flour and spices. Stir chicken mixture and rice into the crockpot. Cover and cook 1 hour more on low-heat setting. Stir in coconut milk before serving. If desired, sprinkle with crushed red pepper. Easy Peasy!
