Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken Keto Style
My husband joined 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, or 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 its own or over zoodles to get that pasta fix.

Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken Pasta
The pasta soaks up the extra sauce and makes the dish more filling. It’s also a great way to use up any leftover chicken you might have. If you don’t want to use pasta, you can totally use rice or any other side you’d like! I know several people who love serving this dish with pasta and it’s always a hit!

How to Reheat Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken
The best way to reheat this chicken dish is in the oven. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and place the dish in an oven-safe dish.

I do like to reheat it in the microwave, but be sure to do so in short intervals so that the sauce doesn’t dry out.
