SOUP SEASON IS UPON US!!!
This makes me so excited y’all! Truthfully, I could eat soup every single day, for every single meal! So when you see a lot of soup or stew recipes popping-up this fall, promise to stick with me. My kids make fun of me because I eat so much soup, it’s that serious!
Chicken pot pie soup is one of my all time favorites. It was only right that I attempt to make a healthy version. Instead of adding noodle, or any sort of dough- we just omitted them. Stay with me here! I was a bit skeptical at first too. Trust me when I say, it was REALLY delicious.
Basically, the seasoning and abundance of chicken and vegetables help make up for the lack of carbs. Typical chicken pot pie soup is thickened with heavy cream. If you’re following a low-carb diet, heavy cream is definitely okay. However, instead of fattening it up even more, we decided to thicken it using almond flour.
How to make the low carb chicken pot pie soup:
Get a large stock pot and add your chicken and water. Boil the chicken for about twenty minutes, or until it is cooked all the way through.
Next, start chopping your veggies. Dice the carrots, celery, and onion. Set them aside. Once chicken is done, remove it from the water and set it aside on a cutting board.
Skim the water the chicken boiled in if any fat or deposits floated to the top. Add the vegetables to the water and simmer on medium for 20 minutes.
When chicken cools down, rough chop it into bite size pieces. Place the chicken back into the pot of water and veggies. Season the soup and continue to simmer for 20 minutes.
While the soup is sim-simmering away, mix the almond flour and water in a separate bowl or cup. Mix thoroughly until flour is fully dissolved.
Pour the almond flour slurry into the pot and mix well. Simmer for an additional 10 minutes- and WAH LAH! Low Carb Chicken Pot Pie Soup is born.
Me personally, I like my soup with A LOT of hot sauce, but you eat yours exactly how you like! Of course if you’re into carbs, feel free to add egg noodles or make some dumplings to go into it.
