Keto Crock Pot Chicken

Chicken breasts are tricky to make.  They are either undercooked, overcooked, taste rubbery, etc…  I have found that the right crock pot recipe can deliver beautifully cooked chicken and this keto crock pot chicken does not disappoint.

It has been so long since I looked at a recipe for this that I no longer remember where I got it!  I cannot, therefore, give recipe  – which I wish I could. 

I have been making it for years and I’m pretty certain it is almost the exact same as the original recipe.  SO… to the original author – whoever you are – thank you for this wonderful recipe.

I like to cook this on low for 8 hour or so.  Some people might prefer to cook on high for a shorter time and it probably doesn’t make a difference.

The one thing to NOT skip in this recipe, however, is the sour cream.  My kids are not sour cream fans, but they always make sure to ask if I put the sour cream in because it really makes the dish. 

There is something about it that really pulls everything together.   Even if you just use a tiny amount, make sure you use some!

Kitchen Essentials

You’ll need a crockpot!   An Instant Pot will do as well, just use the slow cook option!


Yes, carrots.  Keto without veggies is not a good way to practice keto.  Granted some veggies are higher in carbs than others so you don’t want to go gorging on them daily.   BUT, veggies like carrots? 

There are many healthy properties in a carrot that you don’t need to stay away from (and shouldn’t).  Go light and enjoy!
