Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Cover - Creamy Tuscan Chicken

Sometimes you just need a quick “one-pot keto dish.”

If you don’t have an Instant Pot yet, you’re definitely going to want to make your life simpler and order one from Amazon — it’s a Godsend when I want to make my Crack Chicken or prepare shredded chicken for multiple recipes.

I’ll be honest with this recipe:  I’m not a huge fan of sun-dried tomatoes, but I’m loving the flavor combination.  Every now and then it’s time to try something new.
