Lemon Chicken, cooked low and slow in the crock pot is succulent, juicy and fall off the bone tender. Flavored with garlic, lemon and thyme, this recipe makes an impressive dish when entertaining yet it’s simple enough for a weeknight meal!
This past weekend I combined some of my favorite things! My crock pot, lemons, garlic and chicken. I’d made an early morning run to the grocery and picked up a whole chicken (cut up) that was on sale plus several other items. At that point I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with the bird but knew I could turn it into something special. Since I had the whole day ahead of me, I decided my trusty slow cooker would be the way to go so I gathered my other ingredients and started cooking.
What you’ll need to make Crock Pot Lemon Chicken:
This dish came together rather quickly and results were incredible. The chicken was moist, full of flavor and there was delicious broth from all of the lemons and garlic. After removing the chicken from the pot, I strained off the rich liquid and with the addition of some flour, butter, salt and pepper made some gravy which I served over a steaming scoop of Instant Pot Garlic and Herb Rice. I added my Super Simple Caprese Salad and dinner was done! One thing’s for sure, after all my years in the kitchen, this principle still holds true for me …simple food cooked with love shared with family and friends is total joy.
