Low Carb Creamy Chicken Mushroom Soup Cooking Tips

When I make chicken soup, I like to poach whole chicken breasts right in the broth. This not only gives and chicken broth a richer flavor, it protects the chicken from overcooking.

Cooked chicken is easier, than raw chicken, to cut into chunks. So you simply pull the cooked breasts out of the soup with tongs. Chop them. Then throw the chicken chunks back into the soup.

KETO Low Carb Creamy Chicken Mushroom Soup

Although this Low Carb Creamy Chicken Mushroom Soup recipe is not dairy free, it still tastes delightful if you leave the dairy out.

Of course the broth is thinner, and the soup is no longer “ketogenic.” Yet it is still low carb, high protein, and tantalizing to the tastebuds!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large sweet onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 5-6 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast
  • 8 cups chicken broth

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (or arrowroot for ketogenic)

  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Add the butter to a large 6-8 quart soup pot and set over medium heat. Once melted add the onions, celery, and garlic. 

  2. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, then add in the mushrooms, rosemary, and thyme. Sauté until the mushrooms soften and cook down. 

  3. Deglaze the pot with dry sherry. Then add in the whole chicken breasts, chicken broth, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Bring to a boil. Then lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the chicken breasts have cooked though.

    Can this recipe be adapted to use goat milk instead of heavy cream? My sister-in-law would probably love it, but has recently been going “cow” dairy free, and using goat milk instead.

    Also, can this soup be frozen? Such a large amount would be way too much and end up going to waste, so being able to freeze it would be fabulous. I’m not such a mushroom fan, so I’m not very knowledgeable about them.

      Hi Wanda!

      Wow, I’ve never made this recipe with goat’s milk, but I think it will work.

      It should freeze well, just make sure to rewarm it at room temperature before reheating. However, you could also just half the recipe.

    Cornstarch is a no no only 4 carbs are you sure?

    • Amy Sposted October 16, 2018 at 4:43 am Reply

      The whole recipe only calls for 1 tbsp of cornstarch, which is 7g. Not much per serving and it thickens the soup perfectly. That alone should not kick you out of ketosis, should it?

    This soup is delicious! It will definitely become part of my “favorites” lineup. I wouldn’t change a thing! Definitely use a mixture of mushrooms.

    This is not keto since include corn starch

      Hi Norma,

      Use arrowroot powder to thicken for a true ketogenic recipe. :)
