Keto Chicken Noodle Soup Jars

Keto Chicken Noodle Soup JarsPin recipeFollow us 54.0k

I don’t know about you, but I find packing lunch one of the hardest parts of staying keto.

I mean, let’s be honest here, there are only so many salads or egg cups that you can eat before you want to throw your Tupperware at Betty from Accounting for eating her takeout next to you.

Enter these noodle jars. They are quick to put together the night before, keep well in the fridge, travel easily and they taste amazing! And the winning point? All you need is boiling water to make them once you’re ready to eat them at work.

I have used chicken flavourings here, but you can use any broth and meat combination that appeals to you. It’s a great way to use up leftover meat from dinner. If you like to eat something fast, hot, nourishing, satisfying and low carb for lunch (or dinner or breakfast) then check these portable noodle soup jars out.

I have used Ball Mason jars. But really any clean glass jar with a tightly fitting lid will do. Just make sure that the mouth is wide enough for you to eat out of easily. Enjoy!

The Protein totals on this seem off based on the chicken, am i missing something?


Well spotted, thank you! The nutrition facts for diced chicken were missing - fixed 😊


I’m so glad I found this recipe and that I now know how to cook the noodles properly ... it taste so good and so filling!!! I made enough for the entire week, so nice not having to worry about east to go lunches.


Looks really good - I have chicken bone broth in my freezer that I made and put in 2 cup bags.  So I would leave out the powdered broth, but should I bring the broth separately, heat it up at work, and then pour it into the jar?  Thanks!


Hi Marilyn, I would leave out the dehydrated stock and keep the prepared stock separately. Heat up until boiling and then pour in the jar. I hope this helps!


GREAT idea! Can't wait to try this one!
