Step 1: In a medium saucepan, heat oil or melt butter over medium heat.
Step 2: Saute the garlic for about a minute or until aromatic.
Step 3: Add the cream into the pan followed by the chicken broth. Simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
Step 4: In the meantime, put the chicken thighs at the bottom of the crockpot and season the thighs with a bit of Italian seasoning, crushed red chilli pepper flakes, sea salt, and black pepper. And top with sun-dried tomatoes.
Step 5: Once the cream is done, adjust the heat to low and stir in the Parmesan cheese a little at a time until smooth. If needed, adjust the seasoning.
Step 6: Evenly pour the cream sauce over the chicken thighs to get s much sauce on top and less on the bottom.
Step 7: Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Step 8: When done, carefully remove the chicken from the crockpot. Set aside.
Step 9: Set the crockpot on high and add the chopped spinach into the pot, stirring for several minutes until wilted.
Step 10: Place the chicken back into the pot and spoon the liquid, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes on top. Or you can just pour the sauce over the chicken when serving.
Step 11: When ready, serve with noodles, cauliflower rice, rice, couscous, or pasta. Enjoy!
