Slow Cooker Lemon and Garlic Chicken

Perfect Pairing:  Extra chicken broth for the gravy

Awhile back I wrote about making Coq Au Vin in the slow cooker.  Well, it was only sort of made in the slow cooker.  Yes, the crock pot was involved, but it was not your typical “throw it in and forget about it” kind of recipe.    Don’t get me wrong, it was totally worth the extra steps and time. 

This Slow Cooker Lemon and Garlic Chicken recipe is simple and delicious.  I will definitely make it again.  It can be hard to have anything made in the slow cooker taste fresh and light, but this recipe fits the bill.  Also, it was nice to find a slow cooker chicken recipe that did not call for cans of soup. 
I pretty much stuck to the recipe provided on TheKitchn.com.  They said it was one of their all-time most popular recipes, so who was I to argue with that?  One thing I would recommend is thinning out the gravy with extra chicken broth because the lemon can be a little bitter.  You may also want to use Better than Bouillon if bouillon cubes freak you out.
There is a small amount of prep before everything goes in the slow cooker, but it can be accomplished in under 10 minutes.  It smells so good while it is cooking.  Hi birdie.
