Keto Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken

My husband joined on the Keto diet bandwagon so I got busy creating some crockpot recipes that are Keto friendly. If you don’t know what Keto is, the best way to describe it is low carb so no rice, bread, pasta. There is way more to it than that but I’m not a Keto blog so I’m not going to go into too many details.

This recipe is easy to adapt to make it Keto or low carb. Just leave out the sun dried tomatoes and everything else is low carb. You can serve it on it’s own or over zoodles to get that pasta fix.

My favorite is this Crock Pot 7 quart Programmable Slow Cooker. First and foremost, I love being able to set the timer in case I’m not home when the food is finished cooking and it just switches to warm. Plus you can lock the lid and just carry it to a party. Not only is it easy to carry but also you will never lose another Tupperware or serving dish again at a potluck party!
