Hearty Crock Pot Chicken Stew

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

So I’ve had these chicken thighs sitting around for a while, and I couldn’t decide what to do with them. I didn’t want to only grill them, so I decided to get the crock pot out and make some sort of stew.

The end results were surprisingly good! Although it might look like a stringy mess, it tastes absolutely delicious. The peppers cooked down so they are virtually nonexistent, but the mushrooms give a nice texture change. I’ve found that it ends up tasting even better after it’s been sitting in the fridge overnight – and now I have enough leftovers for the rest of the week.

If you’re looking to up the fat content (as this is a bit low), you can add some olive oil for richness – or serve it with cheese on top. I normally use this with my breakfast of scrambled eggs, spinach, and cheese. Mix it all together and I have a quick and tasty breakfast.

Let me know what you do with yours!

8. Add 3 tablespoons butter to your stew and mix together. I added ½ teaspoon xanthan gum to slightly thicken – but it should have reduced some.

9. Let cook for 1 more hour without the top, so that the sauce can reduce.

10. Serve hot, or save it in the fridge – it saves well and can be reheated in the microwave!
