Low Carb Crock Pot Philly Cheese Chicken (Easy)

Here is a low carb version of philly cheesesteak that uses chicken instead!  Everyone really enjoyed this super easy meal – low carb and ‘non-low carbers’ alike!  The soy sauce gives the chicken such a great flavor and makes for a wonderful au jus type sauce.  In the picture, it is served on a Josephs low carb pita which has 4 g. of net carbs.  It only has 4 ingredients and no-precooking needed!

 

philly cheese chicken
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons butter
2  medium sliced green peppers
1 pound boneless skinless thin sliced chicken cutlets
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
Your favorite sliced cheese (optional – I used smoked provalone)

 

Directions:
Add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on low until cooked through and tender, approximately 3 hours.  Slightly break the chicken into slices after cooking.  This makes approximately (3) 1 cup servings with approximately 3 to 4 grams of net carbs per cup without any bread.  I am sure you could double this recipe if needed.  I made this in my 5 quart slow cooker.

 

Low Carb Serving Suggestions:
(1) As is / straight up
(2) In a bowl with melted cheese
(3) Over lettuce
(4) In low carb tortillas or pitas

Ingredients:

2 cups of no-sugar-added marinara or pizza sauce  (I used La Famiglia Del Grosso Sunday Marinara which is 3 g. net carbs per 1/4 cup)

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

20 pepperoni slices

1 cup of your favorite shredded cheese

Directions

Put marinara sauce in the bottom of crock pot.  Add chicken and season with salt and pepper to taste. Lay pepperoni over chicken.  Cook on low until thoroughly cooked (approx. 3 hours).

Turn off crock pot.  Add in shredded cheese and put the lid back on for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and then serve each piece of chicken with sauce.

I used 1/4 cup of sauce over my chicken = approximately 3 g. per net carbs for each piece of chicken.
