Keto Homemade Chicken Soup
If you're on the keto diet or even just on a low carb diet, using canned cream of chicken soup is not an option with the high carb count.
The ingredient list contains a few things which I can't have being gluten free with multiple food sensitivities, like modified corn starch, wheat flour, soy protein, just to name a few.
While my creamy soup has none of those ingredients, it will be just as tasty and won't break your carb count for the day!
This one pot easy delicious soup is a comfort foods type of meal in a bowl during the long, cold winter nights or any chilly day.
But not only that, it will be so satisfying you may just need to put it on a regular rotation just to enjoy left overs for lunch! My picky husband and picky children have claimed this to be the best soup I've ever made!
Easy Keto Chicken Soup Variations
Make it Paleo by swapping the heavy cream with the same amount of coconut cream.
Want it thicker? At the end of the cooking time, sprinkle in ¼ teaspoon of xanthan gum and continue to stir about 5 minutes until broth thickens.
Change protein choice by swapping the ground chicken with ground turkey or ground beef if you prefer.
Don't like Radish? Swap radish with cauliflower if you prefer, but if you've never tried radish as a swap for potatoes you must give this a go!
Tools to Make Keto Cream of Chicken Soup
Dutch Oven- I love my large dutch oven because it's nice and heavy, cooks up veggies and browns meat quickly and the cover is solid so it holds its heat really well. If you were to make something that also needed to go into the oven to finish baking, you can easily just transfer it in without issue.
Large Stock Pot- Obviously this soup can be made in a regular stock pot since it's all made on the stove top and no oven time is required.
Meat masher- This works great to crumble any ground meat while browning it.

I am eating this right now! I love it! I goofed and only bought 1 lb of chicken and used coconut milk and although recipe didnt say kale I saw your video and added it! Thank you so much .
Hi Brenda have printed this out and cant wait to try it, sounds Yum. A question please, what sort of radishes does one use ? is it Daikon or the small red radishes which would be a fiddle.
How many servings are in this recipe? Plan on trying this week.
I could see this with kielbasa, turkey sausage, even cubed tofu. Printing it out to give it a whirl. Your spinach quiche was a legendary hit...wife was VERY surprised I prepared it, frankly...
Glad to hear!
