KETO RECIPE: Creamy Slow-Cooker Chicken


Creamy Slow-Cooker Chicken

A creamy slow-cooker meal is perfect for those chilly days. You can make this dish very quickly and then enjoy the aromas for the next 4 hours while it cooks. The fresh spinach added toward the end of the cooking time adds beautiful color and freshness.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbsp of ghee

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 cup of alfredo sauce

  • 1/4 cup of chopped sun dried tomatoes

  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 2 cups of fresh spinach

  • Pink salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, melt the ghee. Add the chicken and cook, about 4 minutes on each side, until brown.

  2. With the crock insert in place, transfer the chicken to the slow cooker. Set the slow cooker to low.

  3. In a small bowl, mix to combine the Alfredo sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, and Parmesan cheese, and season the pink salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the chicken.

  4. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through.

  5. Add the fresh spinach. Cover and cook for 5 minutes more, until the spinach is slightly wilted, and serve.

Substitution tip: You can replace the chicken with pork chops and follow the same instructions.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put the slow cooker on low.

  2. Season the meat with salt and pepper and place it on the bottom of the slow cooker. 

  3. Pour the packets of dry ranch dressing and gravy mix over the meat. 

  4. Place the sticks of butter on top of the meat and seasoning mixes. 

  5. Add the peperonicinis (I don't add the liquid, just the peppers) all around the butter on top of the meat. There will be plenty of liquid from the meat and the butter, no water or broth is needed. 

  6. Let it cook for 8 hours on low. 

  7. Shred beef with 2 forks.

  8. Place shredded beef and peperoncinis in serving dish. Buttery liquid can be used as a gravy, I pour it into a separate container. 



Mississippi pot roast pairs great with cauliflower rice or mashed cauliflower. Sometimes I also put it inside a low carb tortilla like a Mississippi Pot Roast burrito- it is super messy, but yummy!

KETO RECIPE: Slow-Cooker Ribs

This week, I was really craving some ribs so I pulled out my Slow-cooker and went to town.  Normally we only think about using our slow-cookers for roasts or chili, but this Keto Rib Recipe is one of my slow-cooker go-to's. The original recipe can be found in The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook

I use pork ribs, and sugar-free BBQ sauce from Alterna Sweets.

Restaurant BBQ sauce has so much sugar in it. Alterna Sweets Sweet and Smokey BBQ sauce is low carb and all flavor. They use blend of flavorful spices and the goodness of fresh, savory tomatoes to create a full bodied taste that is reminiscent of the best BBQ joints.

As a variation on the original recipe, which can be found in my cookbook: The Easy 5-ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook, today a popped the finished ribs into the broiler for about 5 minutes on the top rack to add a little bit more texture to the meat. 

The original recipe suggests that you should set the slow-cooker on High for 4 hours, but if you want, you can leave the ribs in for 6-8 hours on low heat. The meat will be extra tender this way, so be careful removing them from the slow-cooker.
