    Just made this, very, very, very good. Boiled my own chicken & used the broth, way better than the can version. I have been enjoying all the soup recipes lately, keep em coming for the winter ????

    This is the Quick and Easy recipes that I need. Thanks

    Oh WOW! I just made this recipe for Chicken soup, and I can't say enough how GREAT it is. Just a few minutes into cooking the veggies I was drooling over the wonderful smells. I really like the idea of cooking the veggies a little longer than I usually do before adding the liquid. It REALLY enhances the favors, and SMELLS so, good. I wasn't sure about putting cabbage in chicken soup - I thought I would really miss the pasta, but I was pleasantly surprised. I also liked having so much chicken in the soup, and shredded, rather than chunks, made it great! I also found I like using the dried onion, too. Thanks so MUCH, Kristie!

    Hands down the best Chicken soup! You really do not miss the noodles. Our whole family is down with the flu and this was so easy and yummy. Thank you for such a great recipe.

    The best chicken soup ever!!!
    I actually added a turnip to mine for that potato texture. It was fabulous. Didn't miss the noodles at all.
    Thank you!!

    Kriste, Thank you for this amazing "no noodle" chicken soup recipe!! Since I was a child chicken soup was always chicken noodle soup. But, like other commentors, I truly did not miss the noodles!
    I was not so sure about mushrooms in chicken soup but I used them anyway and loved the combination! My husband, who is not a low carber, tasted the soup and said it was delicious, so that is great- the next time I will make 8 portions so I can share some with him! Happy to hear that it freezes well. This is definitely my "go to" chicken soup recipe now!!

    This was fabulous. I didn't change a thing (except I baked my own chicken rather than using store bought rotisserie). I did a side of noodles for the unenlightened husband and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.

    This is a yummy soup, and I didn't have time to shop for some of the ingredients. So ,minus the mushrooms and only about half the chicken required, fresh, not dried parsley, and just chicken stock powder in water instead of bone broth, this soup was divine. Sautéed veg in butter, at the start of making soup is going to be a given for me from now on.

    This looks great just wondering if the nutrition information is correct- how does his have 40g of fat per serving?
  11. Valerie
    This soup was so good. I only had 4 cups of chicken stock but I didn’t half the recipe and it was just that more flavorful. I didn’t use cabbage or mushrooms because I am not a fan, but I did add Jicama which gave it a fun crunch. I would make this again.

    Love this soup! I boiled my chicken with celery and onions rather than using rotisserie chicken which can be loaded with non-Keto ingredients. Was also able to use the broth to make the soup. I used regular onions rather than dried and also added Fennel seeds and left out the mushrooms. I love adding cabbage to replace the noodles. Perfect soup for a chilly day!
  13. sally
    Would be good if you put the correct measurements. How in the hell do you measure 125ml of cabbage?????
  14. Maria
    This is so delicious! My husband didn't even realise there was cabbage in the soup! Definitely going to be on my winter menu several times!
  15. Mathilde
    What a beautiful meal soup! Very fulfilling and tasty!
  16. Judy
    Delicious ! I also added turmeric and ginger. Will add some dried chili next time, too.
  17. Tab
    Very, very good. Thank you.

    Made this for friends this week who do not follow a Keto lifestyle and they like me loved it. I stuck to the recipe no changes. I also baked a Keto seed loaf to go with the soup which we toasted slices of and added lashings of butter. The soup was easy to make and delicious just right for our New Zealand winter. Thanks for a great recipe the kind you need when nights are dark, cold and after work you want to lessen time spent cooking dinner :)

    this looks delicious and I am going to try and make this at the weekend. however, can you please indicate what a serving is.... I think this is where I may be going wrong... is one serving one cup, two cups, 3/4 cup etc.... silly question to some...... many thanks

    Loved the recipe, but as an inexperienced cook, I would have loved more specificity!
    Things like “smaller pieces” how small? And then one “medium carrot” but then it’s not told to cut it. Easy for some people, but for those of us with no skills.. not so much.
