Gather Your Ingredients

Let’s Get Started

Begin by making a basic roux, using almond flour for low carb. Melt the butter in the pan, then add the flour, whisking together to make a creamy paste. Cook the mixture 2-3 minutes until the flour is cooked and no longer raw.

Whisk in stone ground mustard, or powdered mustard for extra flavor. Then stream in the broth, whisking the whole time. Bring to a boil.

Turn heat down and simmer and let sauce thicken. Add in the cream cheese, stirring until cream cheese is completely incorporated.

Add in the Xanthan gum to thicken the soup base.

Add in the rotisserie or precooked grilled chicken and the diced ham.

Simmer until the meat is cooked through.

Stir in the Swiss cheese and brown mustard.

Top with parsley.

Serve with croutons.

Looking to create low carb croutons? Cut a few slices of your favorite Keto bread in to cubes. Place on baking pan in a single layer in 375° oven and bake for 10 – 15 minutes until bread cubes are toasted.
