Low-Carb Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup Ingredients
The soup has some simple ingredients just like my low-carb chicken cordon bleu casserole. .
The basics of the recipe are the following:
- chicken - I didn't have leftover chicken, but this recipe would be conducive to using leftover chicken. Instead, I cooked my frozen chicken in the instant pot while I prepared the base of the soup. I threw together some basic seasonings for the chicken. You could use lemon-pepper or basic chicken seasoning. I used a rotisserie chicken seasoning for mine. Once it is cooked, remove from the Instant Pot and chop up or shred it.
- ham - Cubed
- cream cheese
- swiss cheese
- heavy whipping cream
- Chicken broth
- Herbs and spics -
How to Make Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup Recipe
To start the chicken cordon bleu soup, start by melting butter in the bottom of a dutch oven or large pot. Then follow with the cream cheese and heavy cream. Melt both down and add the diced ham. I buy pre-diced ham but again, feel free to use some leftover ham if you have it available. Stir to combine and add chicken broth. I added three to four cups of broth but started with three. You can use your judgment on how much broth you want based on how runny you want the soup to be.
Stir in the chicken. I let simmer on a very low heat for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. I then added the shredded swiss cheese. Continuously stir to melt the shredded cheese down.
Then add salt and pepper and parsley to taste. I like my soup with a half teaspoon of pepper and salt and a teaspoon of parsley. You can hold the soup over a low heat till ready to serve.
Garnish the keto chicken cordon bleu soup with more Swiss cheese. If you don't love swiss cheese feel free to use provolone or Monterey Jack cheese.
