IS CRACK CHICKEN LOW CARB OR KETO-FRIENDLY?

If you eat this chicken by itself without adding it on a pita or bun, it is low carb. However, you could wrap it up in a lettuce leaf. I like to use the butter lettuce since it has nice, large sturdy leaves. Or wrap it up in some low carb tortillas. This makes an absolutely delicious wrap sandwich. You can even serve this as a dip along with pita chips!Instant Pot Creamy Crack Chicken recipe served on hamburger buns

CAN I MAKE THIS IN A CROCK POT?

Although I haven’t personally tested this recipe in a crock pot – you can certainly make it in a slow cooker. Cook on low for about 4-6 hours. Also, don’t add the additional water to the chicken. The additional water is just to help an Instant Pot come to pressure. If you try it in a crock pot, be sure to come back and let me know how it goes!
