The Best Keto Chicken & Dumplings


  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme plus more for garnish
  • 4-5 chicken thighs  boneless, skinless, shredded or cut into chunks
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf 
for the Dumplings
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ½ cup coconut flour plus more


  • large pot
  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • Mixing bowl
  • Rolling Pin
  • Parchment paper
  • Pizza Cutter


  1. In a large pot over medium heat, warm oil, pepper, and salt. Sauté onion and celery until translucent, approximately 2 minutes.
  2. Avocado oil, celery, and onion in a large pot
  3. Add garlic and spices, then add chicken and cook until evenly browned and cooked through, approximately 10 minutes.
  4. Raw chicken thigh meat, celery, and onions in a large pot
  5. Add broth and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce and simmer on medium-low heat for 20 minutes. While broth simmers, make dumplings.
  6. In a separate bowl, add yolks, baking powder, and xanthan gum. Mix until combined and smooth.
  7. In a microwave safe bowl, warm mozzarella cheese for 20 seconds, then in 10 second intervals, until melted. Stir cheese between each interval.
  8. Stir egg yolk mixture into cheese and add coconut flour, mixing until thick.
  9. Knead dough with your hands until smooth. On nonstick surface or between two greased sheets of parchment paper, roll dough until approximately ¼-inch thick. Be careful not to roll dough too thin.
  10. With a pizza cutter, gently cut dough into pieces. Sprinkle a small amount of coconut flour on dough pieces to prevent them sticking together.
  11. Add dough to soup and serve immediately.


  • It’s super important that the dumplings are served immediately – if they sit in the soup too long, they’ll fall apart. Believe me, we tried three different recipes, and this was the only way it works!
  • Recipe yields approximately 6 servings. Nutritional information shown reflects values for one serving. Macros may vary slightly depending on specific brands of ingredients used.
