Equipment

  • Crock Pot or Slow Cooker

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6-8 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 ½ lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • ¼ cup sun dried tomatoes chopped
  • 2 cups baby spinach packed and roughly chopped

Instructions
 

  • In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add minced garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add chicken stock and heavy cream. Simmer on low for 5-7 minutes. Add in parmesan cheese and stir to combine. Turn off heat.
  • Place chicken thighs at the bottom of a slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle Italian seasoning and salt over top of chicken thighs. Add in sun dried tomatoes and pour cream sauce over top to cover.
  • Place lid on slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 5-6 hours.
  • After the cooking time is complete, take chicken breasts out and set to the side. Add in spinach, and stir until it wilts.
  • Add chicken back to slow cooker, and you are ready to serve. This would be great on pasta, or with a side of broccoli or cauliflower. I also like to serve with an extra grate of fresh parm over the top!
