Today I am sharing a recipe you guys are going to love! This Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Soup recipe is the perfect keto dinner. It is easy, delicious, makes plenty, and is ultra low-carb!

In this house, we are huge buffalo chicken fans. Actually, if I ask my husband what he wants for dinner it is always the same three things — buffalo chicken, tacos, or burgers. He is a simple man, ha!

Now, just in case you are reading this and do not have an Instant Pot, don’t worry I have also included slow cooker instructions. This recipe can easily be made in a pressure cooker or a CrockPot, whichever you prefer.

Ingredients in Buffalo Chicken Soup

Soups can be tricky because they are generally so full of carbs. Even if you make something like a vegetable beef soup, it can run on the high side of carbs because of the vegetables.

For this ketobuffalo chicken soup, I kept things really simple and used ingredients that complement the buffalo chicken flavor so it really shines.

For this recipe, you need:

  • Chicken breasts
  • Butter
  • Celery
  • Bell Pepper
  • Garlic
  • Paprika
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Chicken Broth
  • Buffalo Sauce
  • Ranch Dressing
  • Cream Cheese
  • Shredded Cheddar

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Soup

This easy keto Instant Pot recipeis a really straightforward three-step process. Here’s a rundown of the recipe:

  1. Sauté the celery, bell pepper and garlic in butter. Then add the chicken breast, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and chicken broth.
  2. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, seal the pressure valve, and set the pressure cooker to 20 minutes. Allow the pressure to naturally release for 5-10 minutes, then manually release the rest.
  3. The last step is to remove the chicken and shred it. While the chicken is out of the pot, add the buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, cream cheese and shredded cheddar. Whisk the mixture until it is completely smooth. Then, add the chicken back to the soup.

Tip:If you love that buffalo chicken flavor but aren’t crazy about soup, try these delicious Buffalo Chicken Muffins, Zucchini Boats, Stuffed Peppers, 3-ingredient Taquitos, or these Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings.

Notes

It is important that the cream cheese and ranch dressing are room temperature so they do not curdle and mix smoothly into the soup.

SLOW COOKER: If you do not wish to saute your celery, garlic and bell pepper you can skip the first ingredient, which is butter.

SLOW COOKER DIRECTIONS

  1. Place the garlic, celery, bell pepper, chicken breast, spices and chicken broth in the slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
  3. Remove the chicken and shred.
  4. Add the cream cheese, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing and shredded cheddar. Whisk vigerously until smooth. Add the chicken back to the soup.
