Can I make this in the slow cooker?

Absolutely, and it’s delicious as well! Basically, it’s the same process except for place everything in slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours, or on LOW for 6-8 hours.

So many ways to serve this chicken!

You can serve it over zucchini noodles or over cauliflower rice, and it’s even delicious over steamed broccoli! If anyone in your family isn’t eating low carb, they can have this served as a yummy sandwich with a bun. It can be adapted for everyone in the family!

    I don’t ever use tarragon for any of my recipes and don’t want to go buy it just for this. Do you think it would still turn out okay without it? Or is there anything I can put in to replace it?

  2. Lina

    Hi Anna, You can use rosemary or dill instead! Or omit…Thanks !

  3. Karen Thompson

    Have you tried making this in bulk and freezing it?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I have not, but if you do let us know how it goes! ❤️

  4. Stacy

    Tried this in the crockpot tonight and it was good! I added dried oregano because I didn’t have any tarragon and thought the flavor turned out great. I also misread the directions and added the bacon in the beginning and it turned out fine! We still garnished with a little more bacon at the end too. Served over rigatoni for my husband and kids and steamed broccoli for me. Will make again!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s so great Stacy! Yay- and thanks for sharing!

  5. Kimberley LLaguno

    hello , this can also be made in crock pot

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! That’s correct! You can find that tip above as well! Just cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours, or on LOW for 6-8 hours.

  6. Valencia
