Keto Cream Cheese Chicken Chili Recipe by Jennifer

The most lovely thing about this creamy cheese keto low-carb chicken chili can be ready in a total of 25 minutes i.e. 10 minutes preparation time and 15 minutes cooking time.  Those are my favorite types of recipes. Don’t miss using cream cheese in this chili because it adds so much body.  Much more than heavy cream would add.

This delicious chili uses boneless skinless chicken thighs which are my most favorite protein to use.  They are perfect for soups, salads, and casseroles.  They have so much more flavor than chicken breast and they are almost exactly the same calorie-wise.

This recipe is hearty but also light in carbs. Tender chunks of chicken, creamy cream cheese and diced chilies pack a kick in every bite!  Serve with diced avocado for the perfect meal.
