Instructions:

  • Saute finely chopped onion in butter until translucent and soft. Add salt and finely chopped garlic cloves, until fragrant. 
  • Add celery and carrots. Saute until carrots get a little color. 
  • Add cream cheese and mix to combine.
  • And chicken broth and chicken breasts.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cover. Cook until chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from the pot, set aside, and cut in small pieces.
  • Thicken up to desired thickness with psyllium husk or glucomannan. Add chicken pieces back to the pot, divided into 4 oven safe bowls.
  • Cover with the prepared pie crust, see recipe below.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, until crust lightly browned.

Pie Crust

  • In a food processor, mix mozzarella and almond flour until well combined and the same size. 
  • Add salt, baking soda, two eggs and sweetner (if using) until it comes together in a ball. 
  • Divided in 4 -6 balls. (depending on how many soup bowls you make).
  • Flatten each of them between two pieces of parchment paper.

Note: You can adjust this recipe to 6 by adding 2 more cups of chicken broth and adjusting the thickness. The Pie crust you don’t use, can be flattened down, sprinkled with desired seasonings (all bagels, Yum!) and baked for 10-12 min at 400 to make Keto chips. Why not!
