Slow-Cooked Lemon Red Potatoes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


6 servings

Butter, lemon juice, parsley and chives enhance this simple side dish. They also cook up nicely in a slow cooker.


  • 1-1/2 pounds medium red potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cut a strip of peel from around the middle of each potato. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  2. Combine the butter, lemon juice, parsley and chives. Pour over potatoes and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
Editor's Note: If you are making these for company and need to save the stovetop for other dishes, the potatoes may be cooked in a slow cooker. Just place the potatoes and 1/4 cup water in a covered 3-qt. slow cooker for 2-1/2 to 3 hours on high. Then proceed as recipe directs.
