    Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken

    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

    Step 1
    In a small bowl, mix oregano, salt, and black pepper together, then sprinkle the mixture evenly over the chicken pieces.
    Step 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).
    Step 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.
    Step 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.
    Step 5
    Serve with cooked pasta or steamed brown rice.
