Creamy Tuscan garlic chicken in the slow cooker makes an easy low carb dinner the family will love. Just 15 minutes prep for this Crock Pot Tuscan chicken recipe!
1 tbsp Olive oil
6 cloves Garlic (minced)
1 cup Heavy cream
1/3 cup Chicken broth
3/4 cup Grated Parmesan cheese
4 large Chicken breast (6 oz each)
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1/2 cup Sun-dried tomatoes (chopped)
2 cup Spinach (chopped, packed)
Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for about a minute, until fragrant.
Add the cream and chicken broth. Bring to a gentle simmer, then set heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. The sauce will still be thin, but thicken enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Meanwhile, place the chicken at the bottom of a slow cooker. Season lightly with Italian seasoning, sea salt, and black pepper. Top with sun-dried tomatoes.
When the sauce is ready, keep it at low heat, but not simmering. Whisk in the Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup at a time, until smooth. Adjust salt to taste if desired.
Pour the sauce evenly over the chicken in the slow cooker. Try to get as much sauce as possible on top of the chicken and less on the bottom.
Cook for 3-4 hours on High or 6-8 hours on Low.
Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and set aside. The sauce in the slow cooker will be thin due to liquid released by the chicken, but the top of the chicken will have a layer of sauce that sticks to it.
Turn the slow cooker on High, if it isn’t already. Add the chopped spinach and stir for a few minutes, until the spinach wilts.
Return the chicken to the slow cooker, and spoon the liquid, spinach and sun-dried tomatoes on top, or just pour them over the chicken to serve.
Serving size: 1 large chicken breast with sauce and 1/4 of total tomatoes & spinach (1/4 of entire recipe)
