Slow Cooker Lemon Pepper Chicken cooks slowly in your crock pot. Minimal effort, maximum taste!
As the holidays start to wind down and the new year begins, I try to take a little break from baking. I still cook daily, but that means that I use my slow cooker much more than I do the rest of the year.
It’s just necessary, considering the month of December is non-stop recipes multiple times a day. This particular year, I am working very hard to eat healthier, and that means cutting back on some of the extras like butter or red meat in particular for me.
I decided to start out the healthy eating journey by making this slow cooker lemon pepper chicken. I absolutely love making chicken in the slow cooker.
It’s so simple, and can be made a variety of ways. One of our favorites is simply pouring barbecue sauce over the chicken.
We end up using the BBQ Chicken in a variety of meals, such as salads, pulled chicken sandwiches, and over baked potatoes.
In this case, I decided to make a lightly seasoned chicken, then serve it with a side salad. I also saved a little bit of the leftovers to serve over salads and stuffed in potatoes throughout the week too.
That is one reason I love whole fryer chickens, because I easily can save the meat for the rest of the week.
This particular meal is a great meal to make on a budget too, with what you have on hand. It’s easily under $5.00 to make when you get a great deal on a fryer chicken.
I know at our local store they always seem to go on sale, even the organic chickens are typically a good deal. I stock up so that I can make oven fried chicken too.
This recipe consists of simply lemon, pepper, rosemary, and chicken. That’s right… four ingredients! Are you ready for dinner tonight? It’ll be easy, I promise!
