    Enjoyed the recipie since I had all of the ingredients in my kitchen. I thought it needed to be brighted, wanted to use a tomato, didn't have one, so I added 1/4 cup salsa. Yep, now it is just right. Love it!

    Just cut them up to the size you would feel comfortable putting in your mouth the smaller they are the faster they cook.

    I made this today and served with cream and mozzarella, absolutely amazing

    "1 liter green cabbage sliced into strips"

    This isn't a valid measurement...

    That was the best chicken soup I ever had!!The only thing different I did was add 1/4 cup lemon juice right before I put the cabbage in. Really brightened up the flavor.

    I love this stuff. I think it is the mushrooms. I just thawed out another container. I had to start fixing smaller bowls because I always want seconds. :-) Thanks for sharing!

    Where does the 40g of fat per serving come from in this recipe? My Swanson chicken broth has 0 fat. Cabbage has basically no fat. Is this all from the chicken? The Costco nutrition information doesn’t seem to support this either. Thanx!

    Chicken and butter.

    We loved this soup! I made it with homemade chicken stock, oven-baked chicken thighs (tossed in avocado oil and topped with salt & pepper before baking), a small onion instead of dried, and lots of fresh Italian parsley. The soup was a hit, just perfect for my husband who is suffering from a cold. I served it with Parmesan crisps on the side. Thanks for a great recipe!

    This soup is delicious! I didn’t change a thing about this recipe. My husband is not much of a chicken soup person but he tried this and his comment was, “I don’t know where you got this recipe but don’t lose it! It tasted like it came from one of those high end restaurants! Best soup I ever had!” So there you have it!😄

    Approximately how much is one serving? If I followed 8 servings as written, how much should I have for one serving? I’m not sure if I’m not eating enough or too much.

    That is going to vary based on how much your soup reduced in volume as you cooked it.

    Is it one and a calf cups of chicken or 1 1/2 chickens? Lol

    Shred 2 rotisserie chickens. Use the meat from one and half the meat from the other. If you'd prefer to just use one chicken, you can scale the recipe to make 5 servings.

    I have tried so many chicken noodle soup recipes with so many disappointed outcomes. This was incredibly delicious! The butter makes it so flavorful and satisfying. 5 stars!

    Could I use Konjac noodles instead of cabbage?

    Yes, that would be a good substitution for this recipe.

  20. Donna
    Um - I think it's slice into pieces.

    Do you use the skin from the chicken.
    In the video it looked like there was no skin in the shredded chicken

    We did not include the skin, but you can if you prefer.

    That depends on how much your soup reduces while cooking. The recipe, as written, makes 8 servings.

    I made this about a week ago to exact description and it was delicious , today I am going to make this but sub the chicken for home made Keto meatballs , ground beef , egg , and cooked riced Cauliflower. I will also use beef bone broth instead of chicken .
  26. Lisa
    I made it following the recipe exactly and it is one of my new favorites fro Diet Doctor! Delicious and filling!

    Where does all the fat come from, just the rotisserie chicken?? 40g for 1 serving, theres no way 1 serving has that much fat

    Butter! It's the first ingredient in the list.

    Delicious. Used a tablespoon of chopped raw onion instead of dry and a home cooked chicken, makes so much and tastes great!!
  30. Elizabeth
    Oh, my goodness... this soup is absolutely delicious! I just made it for the first time and will definitely be adding it to our regular rotation.
  31. Tania
    My family loved this recipe and have requested it for every week now. I used home cooked stock and chicken with fresh onion and parsley. Delicious!

    Has anyone used chicken stock instead of broth 😨

    You can use stock, but you may find there's not as much flavor in the finished dish as if you used home made bone broth.

  34. Caroline
    Tasty. Made this recipe but left out the chicken (to go easy on my already queasy stomach), and had just had it for dinner tonight. A recipe I will definitely come back to.
  35. Kim
    Lovely simple tasty refreshing meal, great when you're in a hurry :-)

    I made your (Keto) chicken soup recipe today for lunch. It is absolutely delicious!!! I love the slight crunch from the cabbage. I thought I would miss noodles, but to my surprise I didn't. Thank you so much for sharing. I plan to make this on a regular basis.

    This soup is great, but so far, I am only guessing at amounts!

    From what I have read elsewhere, rotisserie chickens can weigh anywhere from 1.5 to 4 pounds or more, cooked, depending on where you buy them. It would be very helpful if you indicated an approximate raw weight for a "rotisserie chicken", so those of us roasting our own for broth as well as meat, have at least some idea of how much meat you are actually talking about.

    Many thanks!

    Just want everyone to be conscious of the fact that 1/4 cup of salsa contains 6+ grams of carbs. There are other products with no carbs that you can add to give it a zip. DIet Doctor actually has a Mexican spice recipe or you can add dashes of tabasco sauce.
    Peace.

    Another reminder to my Keto friends. Minced onion contains zero carbs whereas fresh onion can have 7 - 10 grams of carbs.
    Peace

    Excellent commentaries. really enjoyed them, and improved my keto cooking knowledge. Thanks Guys!

    Did not want to run to the store to get a rotisserie chicken and have 1/2 of the chicken left to figure out. Instead, I pan fried 4 butterflied chicken breasts in some butter and olive oil, sprinkled liberally with pink salt and pepper, until very golden brown. Diced that to add for my chicken. Then, I added some of the stock to my frying pan to loosen all those lovely bits of chicken and poured that into my soup pot. It added more flavor and was probably better than the rotisserie chicken would have been.

    I've been making home made soup for forever. It was good but not as good as this. Thank you, it is my new go to soup recipe
  47. Laurel
    What size chicken? A Costco rotisserie chicken is almost twice as large as one from my local grocery store. Weight measurements would be much more helpful. The recipe sounds delicious and I will be trying it soon.
