Slow Cooker 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!
