This Chicken Mushroom Soup recipe is one of those great comfort food recipes that requires you to do little beyond dump and cook in your Instant Pot or Pressure cooker.
Chicken Mushroom Soup | Pressure Cooker & Keto
I made this Pressure Cooker Low Carb Chicken Mushroom Soup about four years ago when we first moved to eating full liquids that needed to be high protein. I had used a variety of different ingredients in it and had the ugliest picture of if you’d ever seen.
Not that I had to worry because absolutely no one ever saw this soup post 😀
But the thing is, it’s actually a very tasty chicken mushroom soup. It’s low carb, it’s dump and cook, and what’s more, it’s very versatile.
So I decided it was time to make this Keto Chicken Mushroom soup again and take better pictures this time.
The picture below shows you most of what I put in it–well, except the mushrooms that I forgot to photograph!
But having shown you this, let me tell you of some changes you can make.
SUBSTITUTIONS & VARIATIONS FOR THIS PRESSURE COOKER LOW CARB KETO CHICKEN MUSHROOM SOUP:
- Add a chopped up sweet potato, which is how I first made this soup
- Add butternut squash
- Change up the herbs to get a different flavor, such as poultry seasoning mix or your favorite herb blend
- Swap fresh oregano for whatever herb you have handy
- Finish it with a little sour cream or heavy whipping cream to add a little creaminess to it
- Substitute zucchini for yellow squash
- Purée everything including the chicken together when done for a thicker soup
- Skip the chicken, add vegetable broth seasoning and stir in some firm tofu into the puréed vegetables for a vegetarian version
With these subs, the cook times and water amounts remain the same as the recipe I am posting below.
