Ever since I started following the Keto diet, I’ve had to bid farewell to the traditional white sauce made with corn flour. But that didn’t stop me from getting creative in the kitchen. I decided to create my own version of a creamy chicken stew, reminiscent of an au gratin dish.
Let me introduce you to my delectable Keto Chicken Stew, a welcome departure from the usual Indian flavors, offering a filling and rich experience while perfectly aligning with the ideal ratio of carbs, proteins, and fats.Jump to Recipe
Last Sunday, I found myself with ample time to experiment and indulge in creating something truly yummy and comforting. That’s when I decided to bring my Keto Chicken Stew to life. I made a decadent sauce using coconut milk, cream, cheese, and butter. This rich and delicious sauce forms the heart of the dish.
The beauty of this recipe lies in its versatility—you can add your favorite herbs and spices to elevate the flavors according to your preferences. I kept it simple and warm this time, allowing the main ingredients to shine through.
I made two servings at one time and had two very special meals. Try this recipe over the weekend and let me know if you like it. You can also bake a dish, cool it down put a cling wrap and have it during the week. It will stay good for three to five days in the fridge.

While both soup and stew will provide the warm nourishment I desire, there is a difference between the two. Soup generally refers to ingredients, such as meat and vegetables, cooked in a large amount of liquid like broth or tomato juice. Soups may be clear, like chicken noodle, or thick, like any cream soup. Stew, on the other hand, includes solid ingredients, such as potatoes and meat, that have been “stewed” or “braised.” Stewing refers to cooking uniform pieces of meat fully submerged in a liquid, while braising refers to cooking larger chunks of meat in just a small amount of liquid. Whether braised or stewed, the result equals a stew that has a greater portion of solid than liquid — University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
