Lemon Garlic Chicken – Slow Cooked

I picked up a few (4) packages of boneless skinless thighs a few weekends ago from Target … they were on sale for $3.99 AND had a $2 off coupon … well of course I snagged them! I was polite and left a few packages behind because, you know, I’ve got a chest freezer and a malfunctioning refrigerator … which will be fixed this week, thankfully. And the quote makes me glad I bought some cheap chicken because it’s a LOT to fix a 30 plus year old SubZero fridge … good grief!

all in

So this recipe came from InstagramFitSlowCookerQueen … if you haven’t checked out her page, GO NOW!!¬† It’s ok, I’ll wait for you to come back!

Oh, hi! Your back!? I hope you clicked the little follow button? ūüôā


Ok, so I had all the ingredients thanks to a little stop at Aldi Saturday … and I made this on Sunday in the crockpot!


*Can I just tell you how HARD it is to take pictures in this house??

2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs

2 lemons (1 sliced and the other zested and juiced)

1/2 cup of water (chicken broth is recommended)

1 tsp basil

4 to 6 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed

1/4 tsp black pepper

generous sprinkling of season salt of choice (I used Onion Salt)

1 onion, sliced

Add the onions to the bottom of the crock. Toss the chicken thighs on top of the onions.

Add the rest of the ingredients over the top of the chicken, making sure you season the chicken heavy with your season salt.

Add the lemon slices over the chicken. Put the lid on, cook on high for 2 to 3 hours OR 4 to 6 hours on low.

Once cooked, pull the chicken out of the crock and either slice or shred. Hopefully it’s not falling apart too much on you!

Yup, different time I cooked it … leave the lemons halved or sliced, it’s your call!

Serve with some yummy herbed riced cauliflower (or regular rice if that floats your boat!)


Looking forward to sharing with some of these¬†GREAT Parties¬†… go check them out!
