I came across an amazing crockpot recipe from the Wholesome yum blog, they have amazing low carb and keto recipes. I have tried this recipe with both chicken and pork chops. It is great with both but I think I do prefer the pork chops. This can be cooked at either a long slow cook up to 8 hours on low or on high 3 to 4 hours. Both times that I have tried this recipe I cooked on high for around 4 hours. This is a great recipe to try especially now that we are approaching colder weather.
The recipe is pretty simple but be careful not to burn the sauce and that the cream sauce is the right consistancy. Not getting the right texture for your chicken or pork chops will cause the taste to be not as good. So be mindful of the directions and you will be fine.
Keto Creamy Tuscan Chicken/Pork Chops Recipe
3 to 5 pieces of chicken breasts or pork chops
1 tbsp Italian Seasonings
1 tbsp olive oil
6 cloves Garlic (minced)
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cups of chicken stock
sun dried tomatos
3/4 cup Grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups of spinanch
Directions on making the Creamy Sauce:
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for about a minute, until golden.
Stir in the cream and chicken broth and bring the sauce to a slow simmer. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about ten minutes. Check the texture of the sauce it should be medium thick, enough to coat a spoon.
Place the chicken or porkchops at the bottom of the crock pot. Season lightly with Italian seasoning, sea salt, and black pepper. Top the chicken/pork chops with the sun-dried tomatoes.
Slowly add in the Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup at a time, until smooth. Taste and adjust according to your taste and also keep checking to make sure sauce is not too thick.
Pour the sauce evenly over the chicken in the crock pot. Get the sauce poured evenly over the meat, try to get on top and not at the bottom. (Not much sauce so you want to get it on the meat on top)
Cook for 3-4 hours on High or 6-8 hours on Low. ( I have cooked both ways are good!)
Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and set aside, add in the spinach and let it cook for a few minuetes. Stir the spinach around and fully coat the spinach in the rich sauce. The spinach will cook down really fast so be sure to watch so it doesn’t wilt.
Serve with more sun dried tomatos on top and enjoy! I added some cauliflower rice and it was delicious! Seriously one of my new go to recipes for the fall. So easy to do and the clean up in one pan and one crock pot, super simple. Try this recipe and let me know what you think. Did you use chicken or pork chops?
