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.

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.

  • Hello! I found your site today and decided to subscribe to it, you have a wonderful blog!

    however, I would like to know if it is normal to have the pop up window constantly showing up, even after I subscribed to the site. Just as I was typing this comment, it popped up again, and to get rid of it, I had to leave the comment section, only to come back and see all that I typed was gone… ;-(

    is there a way to disable that feature for people who already subscribe to your site?

    thank you!

    • Oh no, that’s no good! Sorry about that, I’m going to look and try to disable that altogether. Thank you for pointing that out, I had no idea!

      • Oh, I am glad I mentioned! I realize that when we own the site, a ton of stuff doesn’t pop up because we are the administrators… I hope it’s an easy fix. Also it might be interesting to ask a few of your old time subscribers -maybe it could be something linked to Safari and a MacBook Pro? Maybe Chrome would act differently?

        anyway, thanks for replying!

  • This sounds so easy and tasty! what spice combination would you suggest if I don’t have the gusto garlic seasoning?

    • The main ingredients of the spice mix are parsley, garlic, onion, lemon peel, and paprika. If you don’t have the spice mix, I would start with garlic and onion powder to replace for the main base of the flavor. There’s a very strong garlic onion flavor. If you have parsley, paprika or lemon peel on hand you could add those in and adjust to suit your taste. Hope that helps!

  • Yummmmm.! I am on my 2nd week of keto and down 7 pounds. I am needing all the easy recipes ya got to keep my options and my husband happy on this diet… i have never went through so much cream cheese in my life… lol guess that is a staple in ketogenic eating… lol

  • Hello Tasha. I am so glad that I subscribed to your site. My daughter and I have just started living “keto” and we are actually enjoying all of the recipes and the time we spend cooking together. I have lost 6 lbs in a week and she has lost 8. I thank you for the interesting info and yummy recipes. My daughter’s favorite food WAS Tostino’s Pizza Rolls and your substitute with the Fathead Pizza Rolls saved her from the cravings. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    • Della, you have no idea how happy that makes me! I have a young daughter and one of my favorite things in the world is spending time cooking together. I’m so glad you two are enjoying your journey together and making it fun! Thank you for sharing, you put a big smile on my face today. :mrgreen:

  • Yum!

    Ordered the Garlic Gusto Seasoning around Christmas time…but just got around to making this soup! “Souper” easy to throw together and so good. Sticks to the ribs. Looking forward to bringing it to work next week for lunch.

    Thanks!

  • If I could marry this soup, I would! It’s fantastic! I didn’t have the seasoning you used, so added minced garlic, salt, and pepper. I’m seriously in love! Thank you!!!! <3

  • I made this tonight! I was rushed and the only thing I had on hand was a rotisserie chicken, so I thought soup would be an easy meal. This was delicious! And so fast! My husband couldn’t believe it was ready so quickly, and so full of flavour. Thank you so much, I’ll be trying more of your recipes for sure!

  • Have you ever frozen & reheated? With school starting I’m looking to have something made ahead of time I just need to heat up on the stove.

  • Found this recipe this past weekend and decided to give it a shot. It is by far one of the best soups I’ve ever made/eaten. I added mushrooms and diced onions (softened in the butter before adding the chicken), and used minced garlic, lemon juice, dried parsley, and sweet paprika instead of the seasoning mix in the recipe since I don’t have any. Will definitely be adding this to my dinner rotation.

    Thank you for such a delicious recipe!

    • You are so very welcome! Thank you for the kind comment, you put a big smile on my face. I’m really glad you enjoyed the recipe.

      P.S. I love the idea of adding mushrooms to the soup, what an excellent addition!

  • I didn’t have the specific seasoning mix this called for but I read what you said it mostly consisted of (thanks for that guidance) and got to work. I used the chicken broth, cream cheese, butter, and then added minced garlic, parsley, a little paprika, a little extra powdered chicken broth for flavor, lemon pepper seasoning and lemon juice. Oh my gosh, the broth was amazing. I then added chopped celery, pearl onions, and riced cauliflower in with the chicken. This is the best soup recipe. I obviously added a little to it, but I followed the main idea. My husband even likes it, and he’s not on my diet. Thanks so much! Will be making more of this!!!

  • Hi Tasha, what could I substitute the heavy cream with? I am currently breastfeeding and my daughter doesn’t handle the lactose in heavy cream very well through my milk.

    • I haven’t tried it with this specific recipe, but I love using coconut milk in soups. I think it would actually work really well here and is dairy free. You could also try almond milk, but I’m afraid it wouldn’t be as thick and creamy as the other option. Hope that helps!

  • Thank you so much for this recipe! I made it this afternoon and it was super delicious! Me and our husband are new to Keto so thank you making the transition flawless even in 2018!

  • Hi! This looks so yummy!! I can’t wait to try it out. 🙂
    To confirm, the serving size in the nutrition facts is for the entire pot?

  • This has become my go-to soup recipe! It’s delicious and very simple to make. I’ve been sick the past couple of days and have pretty much been living off it.

  • OMG! This soup is delicious! I didn’t have the right spices so I used “Spice Island’s Organic Garlic & Herb seasoning” and it came out perfect. I bought the seasoning at Costco. Thank you so much for the recipe. It’s my new favorite!
