Keto Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

This light, delicious keto chicken soup skips the carb-heavy ingredients (carrots, onions, and egg noodles) and amps up classic flavor and texture with zucchini noodles, shallot, celery, dill, and a kiss of cream. For best results, add the zucchini noodles just before serving.

  • Season the chicken thighs with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.
  • In a 3 to 4-quart pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 2 minutes. Add the celery, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes more. Nestle the seasoned chicken thighs into the celery mixture. Cook for 1 minute on each side.
  • Add the chicken broth, turn up the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer until the chicken is tender and cooked through, 20 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken to a plate to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, stir the xanthan gum into the soup, bring the soup to a low boil and let it bubble, stirring often, for 3 minutes. Lower the heat to medium-low. Stir in the cream, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  • Using your hands or two forks, shred the chicken then return it to the soup. Stir in the dill, then remove the soup from the heat.
  • Break the spiralized noodles in half lengthwise, scatter them into the soup, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Serve.
