This was a popular dish my mom or grandma would make for me with left over chicken roast and broth from the carcass. It’s basically a thickened chicken noodle soup!
We want to keep it keto so we used konjac fiber to thicken it and it worked quite well!
This is a collagen , protein and healthy fat powerhouse
You can use any roast chicken- we like to slow cook chicken thighs in the slow cooker and use the juices as a base for this- adds more flavor!
I love to get my chicken from Apsey Farms- it’s corn and soy free ! Use code HELEN10 or use code SAVEHLN at Heifer Hog and Hen 🙂
To make you need:
2 lbs chicken thighs/legs or a whole chicken
Chicken broth – we love kettle and fire 🔥
Olive oil 🫒
For the final dish:
Green onion 🧅
Konjak fiber to thicken (optional)
Collagen powder (optional) – use code Cureeated at equip foods !
Put olive oil on the bottom of the slow cooker and layer on the chicken, chopped garlic , onion and salt. Add a bit of chicken broth. Slow cook for about 8 hours!
When it’s ready, shred the chicken and strain the broth! Add to a pot, add a generous amount of heavy cream, chopped green onion and cilantro! Stir in a teaspoon of konjak fiber and a few scoops of collagen!
