Tomato Basil Chicken Soup #Ketofriendly #SlowCooker

It dropped into the 20s here – which means time to pull out the slow cooker and make soup! I wanted to make something filling and hearty for my family this week so I pulled together some of their favorite flavors and come up with this super quick super simple meal – Tomato Basil Chicken Soup is so easy and so yummy!

Everyone’s slow cooker is different. The size of your cooker will effect how long this soup needs to cook. The good thing is that since it’s so much liquid that it’s very unlikely to dry out. You need to gauge cook time by the depth of the ingredients in the pot – the deeper it is the longer it will need to cook. I have a simple 6 qt slow cooker from Pioneer Woman. It’s super pretty and works very well – nothing fancy, just a little dial for warm, low and high. But I love it! You can check it out here – Pioneer Woman 6qt Slow Cooker. So since this makes my ingredients more shallow – because it’s one of the wide oval ones – I only need to cook this for 6 hours.

It is important that you leave the cheese until the end. If you put it in at the start – it will get very bitter and sort of clumpy. You will lose the silky creaminess from the heavy cream.

This soup is a great Keto friendly meal too! Since there is no pasta in it – you can get the tastes of a big bowl of pasta with a yummy sauce without the guilt! I did serve it up with some garlic bread for my family because they are not as strict to the keto diet and I try to be.

Now Let’s Get Cookin’!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
