Does it get any better than a low-carb crockpot meal?

Well, technically speaking, yes. A million dollars overnight, a Mary Poppins-style nanny who works for free, and a few new cars with free gas for life would be better.

But since we are keeping it real today, let’s stick to effortless dinners—which means using your good old slow cooker. Are you too tired after working all day to make dinner?

Use the slow cooker.

Is it too hot to turn on the oven?

Whip out the Crockpot.

Want to feel accomplished after a day of shopping or Netflix?

It’s slow cooker time.

This easy Tuscan Garlic keto crockpot chicken is one of my favorite go-to recipes to make in mine.

A few months into the keto diet, I started making this Tuscan Garlic Keto Crock Pot Chicken recipe regularly. I loved it because it was simple to put together, and nobody in my family of five complained about having it for dinner—even two nights in a row. Score!

How To Make Easy Tuscan Garlic Chicken Step By Step

The steps for how to make Tuscan Garlic Keto chicken in the crockpot are straightforward. That’s the beauty of this recipe – your slow cooker does most of the work for you! Here are the essential steps:

Making The Tuscan Garlic Chicken Sauce

Remember how I told you this recipe was almost effortless? Well, the only real hands-on work is making the sauce.
Saute the garlic in oil, then add the cream and chicken broth. Simmer for a few minutes to thicken the sauce. (Don’t expect it to be thick-thick. Expect it to be a little on the thin side yet thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.)
Next, reduce the heat to low and whisk in the parmesan cheese ¼ cup at a time. Keep stirring until the sauce is smooth.

Cooking Tuscan Chicken In The Crockpot

While the sauce simmers, you can prepare the rest of the recipe.
You can throw the raw chicken in your slow cooker or carefully place it in it and season it with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.
Then top it off with sun-dried tomatoes.
Your sauce should be thick by now, and when it is, you can pour it over the chicken.
Now, all you have to do is turn on your crockpot. If you’re in a hurry, cook on high for 3-4 hours. If you’ve got plenty of time, cook for 6-8 hours on low.

Wait, When Do I Add The Spinach? 

If you’re feeling low-key pissed that you purchased spinach for nothing, let me assure you it’s all good. The spinach comes in last. When the chicken is cooked, take it from the slow cooker and place it on a plate. You can cover it to keep it warm. FYI: We are adding this step to make mixing the spinach with the crockpot’s liquid easier.
Crank up the heat on the crockpot to high and add the spinach. Stir it for a few minutes until the spinach wilts.

Serving The Tuscan Garlic Keto Crock Pot Chicken 

If you are into overachieving or need to make a statement with this recipe because, say, oh hell, I don’t know, your mother-in-law is coming over, or you are feeling extra, here are a few tips.

Save time. Make the sauce ahead. Crockpot Tuscan chicken is already a time-saver, but if you want to make it faster, you can make the sauce ahead of time. Just store it in the fridge and heat it before pouring it over the chicken.

To Make Sure The Sauce Is Perfectly Thick. Remember, your sauce will be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon yet easily pourable. If you are having a “my sauce is too thick” crisis, add some heavy cream or whisk in ¼ cup of parmesan cheese. 

Substitutes. You can use frozen spinach instead of fresh. Just make sure you thaw and dry it first to remove excess moisture. 

Keep an eye on the spinach. Spinach wilts fast! Do not throw caution to the wind; throw it in with the chicken. Trust me, I have made this mistake, and it will be a memorable, mushy dinner disaster. Hold the spinach until the end. 

Ok, if I have done my job here, you have had a fabulous dinner with minimal effort – all of the stars aligned with you and there is now peace on earth:)).

Instructions

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for about a minute. 

Add the cream and chicken broth. Bring to a gentle simmer, then set heat to low and simmer for 8-10 minutes. The sauce will be thin enough to coat the back of a spoon on the thin side.

Place the chicken at the bottom of your crockpot—season with Italian seasoning, sea salt, and black pepper. 

Top with sun-dried tomatoes.

When the sauce is ready, turn the heat down to low.

Whisk in the Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup at a time, until smooth.

Pour the sauce as evenly as possible over the chicken. 

Cook for 3-4 hours on High or 6-8 hours on low.

Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and set it aside. 

Turn the slow cooker on High, add the chopped spinach and stir for a few minutes until the spinach wilts.

Return the chicken to the slow cooker, spoon the liquid, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes on top, or pour them over the chicken when you are ready to serve.
