Slow Cooker Chicken Pumpkin Stew

Certainly Keto
This is a hearty pumpkin stew with chunks of chicken and cauliflower to warm you up on cold nights. Plus it is so easy just throw everything in the slow cooker and you're done. This can also be a vegetarian stew just by omitting the chicken or swapping it for vegetarian chicken.
