WebMD Recipe

If you have lemon pepper seasoning, you can use 1/2 teaspoon of that instead of the black pepper. Just subtract 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice and increase the water by a tablespoon.

Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon
    dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    black pepper
  • 2 pounds
    skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon
    canola oil
  • 1/4 cup
    water
  • 3 tablespoons
    fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons
    garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon
    low-sodium chicken broth powder, or bouillon granules
  • 1 teaspoon
    parsley, chopped fresh
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, mix oregano, salt, and black pepper together, then sprinkle the mixture evenly over the chicken pieces.
  2. Add canola oil to a large, nonstick skillet and start heating over medium heat. When hot, add chicken pieces and brown on both sides (about 3 minutes per side).
  3. Place chicken pieces in slow cooker. Add water, lemon juice, garlic, and chicken broth powder to the skillet, and bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Pour the lemon juice over the chicken in the slow cooker and cover with lid.
  4. Cook on HIGH for 3 hours or LOW for about 6 hours. Sprinkle the parsley on top of the chicken about 15-30 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
