I love my keto chicken soup recipe. It is super easy to make and utilizes a lot of healthy vegetables. The great thing about making keto chicken soup is that you can take some of the broth that you made and use it for another soup dish or another meal. My keto chicken soup recipe starts out with a whole chicken, but you don’t need to use the whole chicken in the soup. You can use half the chicken and save some of the chicken for another recipe, killing two birds with one stone! (I usually divide the chicken meat in half and make a chicken broccoli casserole with the other meat. It is tasty!)
- 1 whole chicken
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 onion
- 2 carrots (these can be omitted because root veggies tend to be higher in carbohydrates, but I still like a slice or two in my soups)
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup frozen green beans
- 1/2 cup frozen broccoli
- 1/2 cup cabbage
- 1 tablespoon sea salt
- 8 cups of water
- 4-5 mushrooms sliced (optional)
- grated pepper (to taste)
- 2 boullion cubes
Remove the organs from the cavity of the bird. Place the whole bird in a crockpot with 8-10 cups of water. Add in tablespoon of sea salt, bay leaf and one stalk of chopped celery. Cook under pressure for 30-40 minuts. If you are using a crockpot, add the water and the chicken to the pot and cook for an hour. Remove the chicken and allow to cool. Take all the meat off of the chicken carcas.
Chop up the celery, onions, carrots, cabbage and mushrooms. To the broth, add the onions, carrots, mushrooms, celery, cabbage, broccoli, green beans and pepper. Chop up the chicken that you deboned and add it to the soup. Season with boullion cube If you are using a pressure cooker, cook for ten minutes under pressure. If you are using a crock pot, then cook for 30 minutes. Cool and serve!
My keto chicken soup recipe tends to follow my style of throw everything in the pot and hope it turns out cooking. You can omit veggies that you dislike and add in ones that I may not have thought to add. These are my tried and true veggies that I enjoy eating on a regular basis. Therefore, they get thrown in!
