Chicken Broccoli Parmesan in Slow Cooker

Chicken Broccoli Parmesan in the Slow Cooker

My husband did not like chicken or sour cream much at all when I met him, but he has since become a fan of them both, especially when they are together in dishes like this saucy gluten-free chicken and vegetable combination.

I especially like how easy this is to put together – it has simple ingredients that don’t take much preparation except to add to the crock pot. I could easily throw it together before rushing out the door to work or to an appointment, and then later I can come home to a delicious dinner.

Gluten-Free Barbecue Shredded Chicken in the Slow Cooker

Barbecue Shredded Chicken in the Slow Cooker

I really like to come home to the aroma and taste of Gluten-Free, Barbecue Shredded Chicken!

This tangy, filling dinner is just what I need after a long day at work, shopping at the mall or an afternoon of gardening in my backyard.

While “30 minute meals” are really helpful, a meal like this, that only requires me to spend about 10 minutes putting ingredients in the slow cooker is even better. Slow cooker meals are, to my mind, the ultimate in “set and forget” cooking activities!

I just load the ingredients into my crockpot and …

6. Carved and Ready to Serve

Mediterranean Beef Rump Roast in the Slow Cooker

I made the most delicious, gluten-free beef rump roast braised in my slow cooker the other day. It was lean and flavorful and it sliced easily so it was easy to serve. The juices were fragrant with the Mediterranean seasoning and the savory vegetables. And, to top it all off, the sandwiches that I will make from the leftovers will be wonderful… We’ve had this before… Many times!

When I did thicken the juices to make a gluten-free gravy the way my husband likes it, we really enjoyed it. I used sweet rice flour for thickening this time. But, arrowroot powder or potato starch flour would work too if you’re cooking paleo.

A little while before serving time, I stirred the thickener into some of the juices and then stirred that back into the crockpot. It made such an easy gravy! There was plenty of flavor in the juices, so without any thickening it would still be excellent if you are on a low-carb diet.
