While I’m all about posting super simple keto recipes, I also love to meal prep, so this shredded chicken soup will last in your refrigerator for five days making it perfect for a quick lunch or dinner.

I love to serve it with my flaxseed bread toasted in butter and with tons of fresh chopped parsley on top. You should try it because the combo is the BOMB.

Soups are usually easy to make and this creamy low carb soup is probably the easiest one. You can use bone broth instead of the chicken broth to increase even more nutrients.

It takes more or less 30 minutes to prepare, so it’s perfect to make even if you are terribly busy. If you’re like me and don’t have hours daily to spend in the kitchen this recipe is for you.

Ingredients for the keto chicken soup

You’ll need only a few low carb ingredients such as:

  • Shredded chicken – You can buy it or make the shredded chicken at home. That’s so easy and probably the whole process with take up to one extra hour.
  • Chicken Broth
  • Garlic – Fresh minced Garlic is the key to this recipe. It adds so much, and it goes perfectly with the creamy taste.
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Cream cheese
  • Vegetables – For this soup, I chose onion, celery, and zucchini because of their close to the white color and the neutral taste. It gives the soup a nice texture, but you can use any low carb vegetables you like.
  • Seasonings – I like to keep it simple here and only add salt and pepper to taste. Feel free to add garlic powder or something spicy if you feel like it

The soup won’t be thick as we don’t add any flours or starches to it. There are a few ways you can make the soup thicker.

Sometimes I like to add xanthan gum, but I tend to omit it as is not 100% natural. You’ll need only 1/2 tsp mixed with water then thrown in the soup to make it thick. Use more or less depending on how thick you want your soup.
