Creamy Chicken Soup
Say hello to Robert and Crystal Savage
Say hello to my friends Robert aka Keto Savage and Crystal aka The Lady Savage. They are taking over my Youtube channel this week to share one of their awesome recipes with us. Both are body builders and experts in the field of fitness and nutrition. They are also the pioneers and creators of the Keto brick which is a great meal replacement for those on Keto. Today they going to be cooking up a delicious Keto soup for us in their kitchen.
Creamy Chicken Soup
We don’t normally eat a ton of soup but it’s starting to get cold out here and the allure of a hot bowl of something has been mighty tempting! We decided to put our heads together and come up with this creamy chicken soup (Crystal did most of the thinking on this one…).
Like most of our recipes, we gravitate towards simplicity. Simply throwing everything in a big pot and letting the heat do the work is about as easy as it gets. We opted for chicken as the primary protein source but feel free to mix it up depending on what you’re craving or your desired macronutrient intake. If you prefer a thicker soup, we do recommend using half of the bone broth and letting the ingredients reduce down a bit more before consuming.
We hope you enjoy this tasty dish and we truly do appreciate Sahil for granting us the opportunity to create something for his channel/site!

I love your site, and consult it whenever I’m looking for something simple but “interesting” to make for my family, which at different times will include anywhere from 2 to 9 persons, including 2 teenage boys and a very particular “tween”. Anyway, I made this last night (using Beef “Better Than Bouillon” instead of Bone Broth and switching out the celery — my daughter is allergic — with 2 Scallions (Spring Onions) and 1/2 of a Fennel Bulb (chopped). I thought about adding some fresh Spinach and/or some shredded Cauliflower, too, but ultimately decided to follow the recipes as closely as possible and to reserve my “tweaks” for another day. The consensus at our table was that this was DELICIOUS and very satisfying. I doubled the yield (to 8) and served it alongside your “5 Ingredient Cheesy Keto Biscuits” and the 5 of us just “chowed down” on it with no need to include an “Entree” (Mixed Berries & Cream was available for anyone who wanted Dessert). I did notice one thing (well actually 2) that bothered me (and are easily correctible), though, when I first came across this recipe: (1) the posted Macros are missing the requisite punctuations (I’m just assuming that they should read: 12.6g Fat, 18.6g Protein, 5.0g Carbs, and 2,078 Calories and not the very scary numbers that are posted); and (2) Bone Broth is misspelled (Both Broth).
Hi JoAnn, thank you for pointing out those errors, I fixed the bone broth and the macros are correct actually it’s for the whole giant pot of soup. If I put those decimals then the calories would be 207 only and not over 2000. But very glad you enjoyed the recipes and so did your family.
