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.
