Keto Chicken Bacon Chowder

Creamy, bacon-chicken-y, full of flavor and one of my husband’s favorite keto recipes that feels indulgent. This is a recipe you can prep in advance, throw in the crockpot on your way out the door, and enjoy when you get home.

As most do, I have tweaked with this recipe a bit to fit our tastes. It has been adapted from Peace, Love, and Low Carb. (You can also find better photos over there if you need food porn.)

Ingredients
3-4 Chicken Breasts, Browned in Bacon Grease (but not cooked through), Cubed
1# Bacon Cooked Crispy, Crumbled
3 Celery Stalks, Chopped
