Sharing is caring!

Best ever Low Carb Keto Buffalo Ranch Chicken Soup recipe. It doesn't get any better than this! You will fall in love with this low carb high fat keto recipe.

This Keto Buffalo Ranch Chicken Soup is one of my all time favorites. We have this soup at least once a month because my kids beg for it.

My oh my, just when I thought this keto lifestyle couldn't get any better! My family started living the keto lifestyle on Sunday, and I was a little worried. Tonight I was told that this recipe was "better than chicken noodle soup," "better than my favorite soup (tomato)," "who knew diet food could taste so good" and the "best thing you've ever cooked."

Needless to say, I'm on cloud nine right now, and my husband hasn't even gotten home yet. I am pretty sure he will agree with the kids.

UPDATE: My kids now have a new favorite Keto Cheesy Shrimp Soup

Before Keto, I never thought of myself as a soup fan, but I'm learning to love it.

Most popular low carb soup I've ever made. Teachers love this one so take it to school and show the teachers how much you care.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 2 Tbsp (I added more to mine, but made it very mild for the family)
  • 4 Tbsp Ranch Dressing
  • 2 Celery Stalks (chopped of sliced)
  • 1/4 cup Yellow Onion (chopped)
  • 6 Tbsp Butter (salted)
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 8 cups Chicken Broth
  • 7 slices of Hearty Bacon

Instructions

  1. Cook and shred chicken. My favorite way to do this is to coat the bottom of a deep frying pan with olive oil on med heat. Place chicken in pan and cook for 5 minutes. Then flip and add 3/4 cup of water. Cover and cook for 7-10 minutes (adding 1/4 c of water every 2-3 minutes). Test chicken with a thermometer and shred after cooling.
  2. Cook and crumble bacon. I always precook bacon to make cooking a little easier.
  3. While chicken and bacon are cooking add all ingredients to a saucepan and cook on medium. Don't boil.
  4. When chicken and bacon are done add to the sauce pan and cover. Allow to cook for 5-10 minutes before serving .
  5. Top with parsley (optional)

Note: I use very little Franks because my family doesn't like hot and spicy foods. When I dish my soup, I add more hot sauce to my liking. You can always take any recipe you find here and change it to your liking. I would love it if you try something and love it to let me know. You can drop me a comment of shooting me an email. If you make something better, I want to taste it!

Bonus Tip: If you feel like prepping the night before you can always go ahead and fry up the chicken and add all of your ingredients in the crock-pot the next day for a delicious meal you can set and forget. I would cook on low for 4 hours.

Enjoy!

When you refer to 4 tablespoons ranch dressing, do you mean the powder or bottled liquid dressing?

I used organic liquid ranch. Side note: I do not recommend Great Value Organic Ranch!

Thank you for this recipe! With a child that has an egg allergy, ranch isn't something we do, but I substituted the ranch for a ranch dip packet and we were able to enjoy it together. My family loved it, though my non LCHF husband said next time add noodles. Maybe just for him! Once again, thank you so much! I am definitely adding this to rotation!

Curious about the keto diet in general, one question comes to mind. What about sodium? There seems to be a lot if sodium with thus lifestyle.

This was delicious! I used chicken thighs. And added some chopped collard greens and sautéed mushrooms. I also sautéed all the vegetables in the butter before adding everything else.

Amanda! That sounds delicious. I'll have to share that with my dad because he loves collards and mushrooms! Thank you.
