Here’s a slow cooker recipe I tried over the weekend, which was delicious. Lemon-y, potato-y, and chicken-y. YUM!
Here’s what I came up with…
adapted from Jennys-Cookbook.blogspot.com
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 4 uncooked boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
- 5 gold potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 1/2 red onion, roughly chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Tbs. dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 2 lemons
- salt, to taste
WHAT YOU DO:
Spray inside of slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
Place the potatoes, onions, and garlic inside.
Place chicken on top, then sprinkle on the oregano, paprika, onion powder, and salt.
Squeeze the lemon juice on top. *TIP: for easier juicing — microwave whole lemons for 15 seconds, then roll them on the counter a couple of times before cutting in half.*
After squeezing out the juice, add the lemon halves to the slow cooker with the chicken mixture.
Cover and cook on high for 4 hours (or 6-8 hours on low) until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Before serving, scoop out the insides of the lemons with a spoon and use as a garnish on top of the chicken.
