crock pot lemon chicken
This crock pot lemon chicken was delicious. It exceeded my expectations, that's for sure. I will make this again and again.
crock pot lemon chicken (adapted from Life as a Lofthouse)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thirds
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 tablespoon Good Seasons Italian dressing/seasoning mix (not enough to taste artificial!)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chicken broth
salt and pepper
Rinse the chicken pieces then shake with flour in a zip-loc baggie. Plug in crock pot and turn setting to Low heat.
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken pieces and brown on both sides. Season with salt and pepper.
Remove chicken from skillet and place in crock pot. Sprinkle the Italian dressing/seasoning mix evenly over chicken. Pour the lemon juice and chicken broth over the tops. Cover with lid and cook on low heat for 3 hours.
What I have to say- the last hour I scooted over the chicken and added some diced potatoes which my oldest daughter LOVED.
