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.
Keto Buffalo Ranch Chicken Soup Recipe:
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.
Keto Buffalo Ranch Chicken Soup Ingredients:
4 cups Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
2 Tbsp Hot Sauce (I added more to mine, but made it very mild for the family)
4 Tbsp Ranch Dressing
2 Celery Stalks (chopped of sliced)
/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
How To Make Keto Buffalo Ranch Chicken Soup:
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 the 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. (You can also boil the chicken if you’d like)
Cook and crumble bacon. I always precook bacon to make cooking a little easier.
While chicken and bacon are cooking add all ingredients to a saucepan and cook on medium. Don’t boil.
When chicken and bacon are done add to the saucepan and cover. Allow to cook for 5-10 minutes before serving.
Top with parsley (optional)
