This Keto Chicken Pot Pie Soup is rich and creamy, with all of the flavors of a fresh baked low carb chicken pot pie. Tender chicken breast, sautéed with onions, garlic, carrots, celery, and peas, in a rich creamy broth.
Ingredients in Chicken Pot Pie Soup
- Chicken: For this chicken pot pie soup recipe, I used boneless skinless chicken breasts, but you could also use chicken thighs or even shredded rotisserie chicken. (Try this Jalapeño Popper Chicken Soup Recipe)
- Celery: This recipe calls for 2 ribs of celery. You could also add extra onion, use shallots, or even leeks.
- Carrots: Carrots are a staple in traditional pot pie recipes. If you are looking to lower the carb count of this keto pot pie soup recipe even further, you can omit them or add any of your other favorite low carb vegetables.
- Peas: ½ cup of peas is roughly 6 net carbs. While peas aren't normally thought of as a low carb food, 6 carbs spread across an entire recipe adds negligible carbs to each serving.
- Heavy Cream: The cream adds a rich silkiness, while also helping to thicken the soup. To make it even thicker and creamier, add an additional ½ cup heavy cream or 4 ounces softened cream cheese.
- Cheddar Cheese: I used sharp white cheddar cheese, but medium cheddar, Colby jack, or even mozzarella would also work.
- Chicken Stock: If you do not have chicken stock on hand, you could also make this using beef stock or vegetable stock.
What to serve with Keto Chicken Pot Pie Soup
For more of a true chicken pot pie feel, I like to serve this with a batch of keto biscuits or crackers. Here are some of my favorite recipes - Keto Cheddar Dill Biscuits, Cheddar Jalapeno Bacon Biscuits, White Cheddar Sausage Biscuits, Parmesan Chive, and Garlic Crackers, Rosemary and Thyme Crackers
Of course, if you wanted to go a more traditional route, while still keeping things low carb, I have a recipe for that too - Keto Chicken Pot Pie
How to make chicken pot pie soup in the slow cooker
Converting this Chicken Pot Pie Soup recipe to slow cooker couldn't be any easier. Simply add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on high for 5 hours or low for 8 hours. If you are home and have the time, I recommend waiting to add the cheese and heavy cream until the final hour.
Substitutions and Swaps
- Want to lower the carbs even further? Substitute the carrots and peas with lower carb vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, cabbage, bell peppers, or onions.
- Need to make this dairy free? Omit the cheese and substitute the heavy cream with full fat coconut milk.
- Use turkey in place of chicken. You can also use ground chicken, ground turkey, or even ground beef. I get all of my grass-fed, grass finished beef, heritage pork, organic chicken and sustainable seafood here

Warm and comforting, this Low Carb Chicken Pot Pie Soup has all the delicious flavors of a freshly baked pot pit, but is soup form and without all the extra carbs.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 ribs celery, diced
- 2 carrots, diced
- 1 ½ pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 3 cloves garlic, minced

- Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven or stock pot, over medium heat. Add the celery and carrots and sauté until they are crisp-tender.
- Add the chicken, garlic, salt, thyme, onion powder and black pepper. Continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through.
- Pour a little bit of the chicken stock into the pot to deglaze. Scrape up and mix in any bits that are stuck to the bottom of the pan. Add the remaining chicken stock, bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes.
- Stir in the heavy cream, cheddar cheese and peas, simmer for an addition 30 to 40 minutes, stirring frequently.

So sooooo delicious! Healthy comfort food and great as leftovers too.
Oh, and my one wish is for this to be turned into an InstantPot recipe. I’m not good at doing that without instructions!
This soup is perfect to make on Sunday and eat all week long for lunch. It’s on repeat at my house. Love it!

So very good! I was unable to find frozen peas where I shop. I picked up a bag of "English peas" from produce. They worked just as well. Even my non keto kids loved it! So very appreciative of you! Thank you!
Such a yummy recipe! Definitely a keeper!
Our house loves this! It’s in regular rotation. It’s easy to customize with whatever veggies you have on hand and add carbs if you want.
Made this a few times using a rotisserie chicken. Instead of peas I used a bag of frozen mixed vegetables. It’s a family fav.
Delicious! I used a rotisserie chicken and sage instead of thyme because I didn’t have any - yummy comfort food ! Thanks for the recipe, definitely a keeper!

Made this at our cabin and it was a hit. Delicious!!
Tried this about a week ago… it was so delicious and really filling
Saving for soup rotation!
Thank you for sharing !
Easy and delish! Perfect as written.
I have done a few things to use what I had on hand to avoid a grocery run.
I used rotisserie chicken once (AH-MAZING), I have used chicken breast (needed to bump the flavor so I added a tablespoon of butter).
I have thickened it a bit by letting it cook down and adding a 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum.
