GARLIC CHICKEN SOUP
I was over the moon excited when I received my subscription box from Keto Delivered. I’m talking Christmas morning excited, you guys! The only thing I ever get in the mail is bills and silly stuff I order from Amazon now and then… not mysterious packages with goodies tailor-made just for me. Everything in the box was a complete surprise. I swear this was the coolest mail EVAR! When I opened it to discover Stacey Hawkin’s Garlic Gusto spice blend, I immediately rushed to the fridge to find something to make with it. There it was: shredded chicken. Creamy garlic chicken soup was the logical next step.
I have a thing for shredded chicken. Seriously, it’s always in the fridge ready to go. Having pre-cooked protein stocked in the fridge is the secret to successful meal planning; it just makes life a little easier when one of your main ingredients is already taken care of. My shredded chicken chili has been a huge hit here, so I know you guys will just love this! This creamy garlic chicken is one of the tastiest soups this blog has ever seen.
To prepare the creamy garlic chicken soup, I heated butter in a saucepan and added the shredded chicken. Once the chicken was warmed and coated in butter, I added the cream cheese to the pot and mixed as it melted over medium heat. Next, chicken broth and a bit of heavy cream were added in and brought to a boil. Just reduce the heat to low and simmer for several minutes to finish it off. Boom. Done.
This post is not sponsored, but Keto Delivered did send a box my way for consideration. I loved their product so much I became an affiliate. If you purchase a subscription through one of my links, I’ll get a small commission used to grow the blog. Thanks for your support!
