  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 shallots minced
  • 1 cup mushrooms chopped
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup frozen baby peas thawed (omit for strict keto)
  • 16 ounces cooked chopped chicken
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 ounces cream cheese cubed
  • 1 cup heavy cream


Stove Top

  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots, mushrooms, celery, and garlic to the pan. Cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the peas and chicken to the pan and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Add the chicken broth and cream cheese and cook until the cream cheese melts.
  • Stir in the heavy cream and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Instant Pot

  • Turn your Instant Pot to Medium Saute. Melt the butter and then add the shallots, mushrooms, celery, and garlic. Cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add ½ cup of the chicken broth and scrape up any brown bits at the bottom of the pan. Stir in the remaining broth.
  • Add the peas and chicken and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot and set the pressure to high for 4 minutes.
  • Allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, and then do a quick release.
  • Set the Instant Pot to saute and add the cream cheese. Cook until the cream cheese melts, stirring often.
  • Stir in the heavy cream until just heated.


Baby peas are technically not keto-friendly, but many find they can enjoy them in moderation without being kicked out of ketosis. If you would like, you can omit them and add an extra ½ cup of mushrooms and celery stalk. If you are low carb and not keto, I like to use a mixture of baby peas and carrots.  Nutritional information does include the peas and they add about 2.5 grams of carbohydrates per serving.
