My slow cooker low carb chicken soup is ideal for meal prep meals and easy family dinners. It is low carb and high in protein. One of the problems I come across frequently with meal prepped meals is that after the 2nd or 3rd day the chicken in my meals get a little dry. Theres is nothing more boring or appetizing about dry chicken breast. You won’t have dry chicken breast with my slow cooker low carb chicken soup. I’m definitely doing a lot of meal planning because I’m sticking to my diet plan. I divided into individual mason jar servings and it was really easy to pour into a bowl and heat up. I like the connivence of having dinner already made for me. I just have to grab a mason jar out and heat up.
If you’re having trouble getting a healthy meal on the table too try making slow cooker low carb chicken soup. It’s not just for meal prep, but something the whole family can enjoy. I know the word slow cooker would imply a lot of time cooking, but to me it’s quite the opposite. It takes about 15 minutes to prep the ingredients and put it in the slow cooker. I’m a busy mom and sometimes slow cooker meals are a life saver.
Slow cooker meals are a time saver. Imagine putting everything in the slow cooker in the afternoon and walking away from it. You would have dinner on the table a few hours later. Slow cooker recipes in general are meant to save you time. Maybe enough time to even squeeze in that hour gym time that we you made a resolution for this new year. To save even more time, you can even meal prep slow cooker meals in freezer bags and store them in the freeze like my Slow Cooker Chicken Jambalya.
