Slow-Cooked Lemon Chicken Recipe
- 6 bone-in chicken breast halves (12 ounces each), skin removed
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
- Hot cooked rice
- Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Combine the oregano, seasoned salt and pepper; rub over chicken. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the chicken in butter; transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Add water, lemon juice, garlic and bouillon to the skillet; bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits. Pour over chicken.
- Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Baste the chicken. Add parsley. Cover and cook 15-30 minutes longer or until meat juices run clear. If desired, remove chicken to a platter and keep warm; thicken cooking juices. Serve over chicken and rice. Yield: 6 servings.
Enjoy this recipe with a light-bodied white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.

Used boneless chicken breasts, and added alittle lemon zest. Chicken was tender and juicy. Could cut it with my fork. Will definitely make this again
SO good! I added spinach, mushrooms, and a little extra lemon juice and garlic the second time I made it, then served it over pasta...AMAZING! This is definitely going on regular rotation in my house!
great recipe. i used boneless chicken and it was great. next time i will use more lemon juice and a bit less time - it was for 3 hours on low. overall awesome dinner
This recipe was a big hit! It was easy to put together and very flavorful and tender. This one will be going on the "heavy rotation" at my house.
