Low Carb Slow Cooker Pizza Chicken Recipe
Written by Derek Howes

Today all I’m gonna say today is yes, it’s amazing and yes, it’s a LOW CARB SLOW COOKER RECIPE!

Take out a slow cooker. I know a bunch of you just said finally in your heads!!! Coat your slow cooker with some non stick cooking spray then add into it by layers 2 1/2 pounds of chopped up chicken breast, 20 ounces of the lowest sodium pizza sauce you can find, 1 teaspoon of some garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of oregano, whatever chopped up vegetables you want, some chopped up mushrooms, and some mini turkey pepperoni slices.

Throw your lid on and cook it on low for 6-8 hours. You could do high for 4-6 but low is the better move here.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering where the cheese is?! Well around 20-30 minutes before it’s done sprinkle on 1 cup of a reduced fat pizza blend cheese or whatever cheese you want and cover it back up.
