5 Minute Low Carb Chicken Soup

This 5 Minute Low Carb Chicken Soup is the real MVP!  This soup can be enjoyed by all for a hearty and delicious dinner.

Once every week or so I like to make a Whole Chicken in my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker, click here for the recipe. I keep the chicken in my fridge for quick lunches and snacks throughout the week. I also like to keep a chicken or 2 worth of cooked meat in my freezer for those days I am in a pinch.

This 5 Minute Low Carb Chicken Soup is something I like to prepare on the days I make a whole chicken because I can use the leftover broth and 1/4-1/2 of the shredded chicken as the base of my soup! I absolutely love no-waste recipes.

As a family of five striving to eat well on a budget, cutting cost where we can, and utilizing all of my ingredients to the best of my ability is a passion of mine!

This delicious low carb soup is also Ketogenic and will help you lose weight! I lost 125 pounds just eating real food and this is one of my favorite go-to soups! It is not to be missed!

I love this recipe because it takes no time at all to make and you can continually eat it over and over. After putting it in your Instant Pot, let it cook for 20 minutes then quick release and you will have dinner on the table in no time!  No, you aren’t Houdini but your kids won’t know the difference.

5 Minute Low Carb Chicken Soup

Print Recipe


  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth or stock
  • 8 ounces leftover shredded chicken or (1) 8 ounce chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 zucchini, sliced
  • 2 cups diced carrots
  • 10 celery sticks, diced
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Place all of the ingredients inside your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Place the lid on your pot and make sure the pressure knob is in the SEALING position.
  • Using the display panel press CANCEL. Then select the MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK function, high pressure, and use the +/- buttons until the display reads 5.
  • When the pot beeps to let you know it’s finished, let it naturally come down from pressure until the display reads LO:20. This will keep your chicken tender. Switch the pressure knob from the SEALING to the VENTING position. Use caution while the steam escapes, it’s hot.
  • Remove the lid, stir, salt to taste.

  1. You’re such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your recipes.This was my first time making soup in my Instant pot (received as a Christmas gift) and it turned out wonderful. I used frozen Brussels sprouts, cellery, green beans, kale, green and yellow squash, garlic and, carrots. They had all been rescued from a slow death in my fridge’s fresh bin. (Can’t count the times a couple of lone carrots or a handful of kale or spinach went bad because I didn’t think to freeze them.) Thanks, again!

  2. I’m making the 5-minute low carb chicken soup. Is it a tablespoon or a teaspoon of garlic powder? The recipe says
    1 tbsp tsp

  3. Hi Brittani,
    Yum! Recipe looks wonderful.
    10 celery – is that 10 stalks, cut in pieces?
    Thank you,

  4. May I know what model of Instant Pot are you using, so I can follow the buttons and IP instructions? Thanks in advance 😀

    1. I’m not Brittany, but I thought I’d give you my experience here. I used double the broth because my kids love lots of broth, 2 raw cubed boneless chicken breasts, and the veggies. I cooked for high pressure 8 minutes. Turned out perfectly.
