Keto White Chicken “Chili”

This comes out a little less thick than a traditional chili – sort of a cross between chili and soup, but you could add some beef gelatin proteins to it to thicken it up if that bothers you. (It’s delicious either way.)

This could also work over shirataki noodles or zoodles to make it go a little further.
