Slow Cooker Almond Chicken

Slow Cooker Almond Chicken is a healthy freezer meal the whole family will love.

Slow Cooker Almond Chicken is a new family favorite at our house. We just started a round of Whole30 and I wanted to come up with something new for this round. My husband fell in love instantly with this recipe and declared it a keeper.  It is so easy to prepare this Slow Cooker Almond Chicken and place it into the freezer to use when you are ready to cook it.  We loved how moist the chicken turned out and I think it could be delicious with either chicken breast or chicken thighs.

I served this over Vegetable Cauliflower Rice and we all loved the flavor.  You could easily serve this with traditional rice or noodles. If you are on Whole30 or eating though you will love the cauliflower “rice”.

If you are following the Keto Diet this is an easy freezer meal for you!  Simply add all of your ingredients into a freezer safe bag and combine and freeze.  When you are ready to cook it simply thaw in the refrigerator overnight.  Add your ingredients to the slow cooker and add 1/2 cup beef broth. Cook on low for 8 hours and enjoy an Easy Keto Diet Recipe when you come home!

This was a very filling meal and we left the table happy and satisfied.  Be sure when making this dish that you are pairing it with a nice flavorful side and you are sure to not be disappointed.  The chicken was tender and had a deep almond flavor.  The toasted almonds really gave it a nice crunch factor.

    Hi! I had high hopes for this recipe, but it really fell flat. It just tasted kinda blah. It smelled amazing when I came home. I did omit salt and pepper as I’m on a no salt diet, and got low sodium beef broth. Maybe that has something to do with it, but if I were to try this again I’d probably put less of the coconut aminos. And maybe add something like pineapple in the rice so it has a sweet and savory contrast.

    1. I agree that the lack of sodium would be a let down. I would think that pineapple with this one would be a welcomed flavor. This is a Whole 30/Paleo recipe but Pineapple would still be approved. How about some sodium free Mrs. Dash?
