Lemon Garlic Chicken

It’s really unfortunate that photos can’t communicate taste. And flavor infusion.

Because seriously, I can taste the lemon and garlic flavors that infused perfectly into the chicken and the potatoes…just looking at the photo. I was actually quite surprised…as I’ve made a number of different garlic-chicken-potatoes slow cooker meals in the past, but not this one.

This one will not disappoint. I’m loving this Try 13 Challenge…as this one is definitely going into the regular rotation!

Are those bone in breasts? I only get those when they are deeply on sale, but I’ll try this with thighs or drums. I have to add this to next month’s menu!

I tried a recipe once that was basically white wine, fresh herbs, and chicken stock thrown in the slow cooker with chicken drums. It was fantastic, but my husband thought it had too much wine flavor. I loved it though. He’s a lemon fan so maybe he’ll like this one better.

I love seeing slow cooker recipes in the summer, it’s so hot out and not having to turn on the oven is always a plus.

Hi, I was wondering if you could substitute Ginger for the garlic in this Slow Cooker Lemon & Garlic Chicken recipe. I don’t do well with garlic… so that’s why the substitution. Also wondering how much ginger I’d need to substitute in?

Where is the liquid in the recipe? Won’t this burn to the bottom and sides of slow cooker?

The lemon that’s juiced over the potato’s, the olive oil that’s drizzled plus the juice of the chicken breasts will give enough moisture
