Slow Cooker Almond Chicken is a new family favorite at our house. We just started a round of Whole30 and I wanted to come up with something new for this round. My husband fell in love instantly with this recipe and declared it a keeper. That means we will be seeing again soon on our menu plan. It is so easy to prepare this recipe and place it into the freezer to use when you are ready to cook it. We loved how moist the chicken turned out and I think it could be delicious with either chicken breast or chicken thighs.
I served this over Vegetable Cauliflower Rice and we all loved the flavor. You could easily serve this with traditional rice or noodles. If you are on Whole30 or eating though you will love the cauliflower “rice”.

This was a very filling meal and we left the table happy and satisfied. Be sure when making this dish that you are pairing it with a nice flavorful side and you are sure to not be disappointed.
