Crock-Pot Lemon Pesto Chicken with Zucchini Noodles
Keto Crockpot slow cooker meals are the best!
I love a good pesto sauce, but with the addition of lemon, it takes things to a whole new level of YUM. This keto Crockpot lemon pesto chicken recipe will likely have you reaching for a second serving…. and maybe even more the next day, if there’s any left!
This keto lemon pesto chicken is not only undeniably delicious, but it’s also extremely easy to make!
After a couple of hours have passed, your lemon pesto chicken will be nice and juicy, and almost ready to devour. I recommend complementing the zesty chicken with zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash for a fully appetizing meal.
You’ll have a decent amount of sauce lingering in your slow cooker, so put that to good use and drizzle it over your low-carb “noodles”. Try to keep it together without drooling over the table before you take your first bite! 😉
