Ingredients

  • 3 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 1/2 Cup Canned Artichoke Hearts- Drained and Chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Roasted Red Bell Peppers- Chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Sliced Black Olives
  • 4 oz Can Slice Mushrooms - Drained
  • 2 Cups Marinara Sauce We like this low carb version.
  • Salt and Pepper- To Taste
  • 8 oz Block Cream Cheese - Cubed
  • Garnish- Mozzarella Cheese

Instructions

  • Place thighs in a 6-7 quart slow cooker.
  • Top evenly with artichokes, peppers, olives and marinara sauce.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook on low for 5-7 hours.
  • Stir in cream cheese until melted.
  • Serve as is, over noodles or zoodles and top with mozzarella cheese.

Notes

  • We used our 7 quart Cuisinart Multicooker to cook this up, but any traditional 6 quart slow cooker or the casserole crock would cook this dish up nicely.
  • We like this spiralizer to make our zoodles for dishes like this.
  • We like to use this low carb marinara sauce in our tomato based dishes to keep carb counts down, but your favorite marinara sauce will work just fine.
  • You can use chicken breasts instead of thighs for this dish, just make sure not to overcook.
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should¬†always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
