The sight of the Crock Pot Tuscan Chicken sitting perfectly on a dinner plate makes your eyes take in all the lovely colors and creaminess that your taste buds are going to enjoy. Each color on your plate highlights the other colors so well that once you cave into the wonderful creaminess, you will not be able to stop yourself from enjoying seconds of this meal!
Then there is the fresh spinach that is stirred in at the very end of making the dish. It is cooked until it is just wilted enough to retain its glorious bright green color that is beautiful. Between the sight of the deep red dried tomatoes and the creamy homemade alfredo sauce…it is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate.
And then you taste it. You taste the tender chicken, the homemade Alfredo sauce, and the freshly grated Parmesan cheese. It is all absolutely lovely, especially combined altogether.
You start the recipe by browning four chicken breast in a skillet with butter and then placing them in a crock pot. While that is cooking, you move onto the next step, which is making an Alfredo sauce. If you’ve never made a homemade Alfredo sauce before it is nothing for you to worry yourself about. That is because this Alfredo sauce has three ingredients: butter, grated Parmesan cheese, and heavy cream. Easy, right? (If you are looking for a super easy cheese grater, this one here is restaurant-certified.)
Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the cream and simmer the two ingredients for about five minutes until it begins to thicken. Stir in the freshly grated Parmesan cheese until it melts and voila, you have an Alfredo Sauce.
I normally serve the Crock Pot Tuscan Chicken over pasta, but you can serve it over rice as well. Maybe you’re thinking mashed potatoes? It doesn’t matter what you decide to side your slow cooker Tuscan chicken with, the dish is amazing enough on its own to just be made and enjoyed. Crock Pot Tuscan Chicken: easy to make using your slow cooker and it is delicious! It’s what’s for dinner…ENJOY!

Crock pot meals are the best!! I love coming home to dinner already cooked, haha. This is perfect!
Thank you Liz.
I love the flavour combination of sun-dried tomatoes and chicken, it makes such a Mediterranean type dish. YUM!! I am going to give this a go.
Unfortunately mine burnt to a crisp. Slow cooker was on low for 4 hours. If I were to make it again I’d reccomend checking in on it, especially if your not super familiar with your crock pot (like me).
Oh geez!! You know what they changed with crock pots, they make the ceramic liners black now. They use to be white. The black liners seem to make anything you cook in them cook faster.
My family would love this! It looks like the perfect weeknight meal!
Thank you Tayler
This sounds just incredible! Love the use of sun dried tomatoes. Plus, anything you can make in the crockpot is awesome!
I love all the flavours in Tuscan chicken and anything that can get it on the table more easily is a winner for me!

DELICIOUS!! I made this tonight. This is the first crock pot chicken dish that I’ve liked in a looong time! I usually dislike chicken cooked in the crock pot. I used extra garlic (always 🙂 and used Sun-Dried Tomato Herb & Parmesan Garlic seasonings from Pampered Chef. The flavors were dimensional. Excellent recipe!
Thank you Monique!
This turned out great! Used chicken thighs and breasts. Also added sautéed mushrooms and a little truffle oil. Served on risotto. So easy and totally delicious!
Thank you Courtney!
