Ingredients for Easy Keto Chicken With White Sauce

  • 1 10oz can of cream of mushroom soup (8g carbs for the entire can)
  • 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast (2 or 3, depending on size and how meaty you like your dish)
  • 2 cups of veggies (I like a mix of spinach, peas, broccoli, and carrots)
  • Salt, pepper, Italian seasoning blend, and garlic to taste
  • Hot sauce (optional)
  • Olive oil or spray oil for the pan
  • Thickener for the sauce (I use xanthan gum and almond flour)
  • 1/4 cup of shredded cheese of your choice


  • Oil a frying pan or oil with a generous dollop or spray of olive oil. You can also add a little margarine.
  • Dice the chicken breasts and start browning the pieces in the pan. I generally use the notch above medium heat.
  • Thaw veggies, if needed. Add them to the pan after the chicken has started to brown.
  • Add the undiluted soup from the can, or an optional white sauce.
  • Add seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste.
  • Continue simmering the pan until the chicken is well cooked and the veggies look soft.
  • Water from the chicken and veggies may dilute the sauce overmuch, so you may need to add a teaspoon of xantham gum or a couple of tablespoons of almond flour (or another low-carb thickener) to get the best consistency.
  • Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top, or stir it in. The cheese will also help thicken the sauce.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!

Sometimes, I serve this dish over one of the denser low-carb vegetables, like squash, but I’ve often eaten it more like a stew. It satisfies my entire family when they’re hungry, and even the non-dieters eat leftovers. Go ahead and play with the optional veggies and seasonings to suit your taste. I find this recipe extremely versatile, so it tends to work with whatever I’ve got in my pantry, freezer, or fridge.
