Slow-Cooked Lemon Chicken

  • Rating ****

6 Servings


  • 6 bone-in chicken breast halves (about 3 pounds), skin removed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
  • Hot cooked rice


Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Combine the oregano, seasoned salt and pepper; rub over the chicken.

In a skillet over medium heat, brown the chicken in butter; transfer to a 5-quart slow cooker.

Add the water, lemon juice, garlic and bouillon to the skillet; bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits on the pan. Pour over the chicken. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. Baste the chicken. Add the parsley.

Cover and cook 15-30 minutes longer or until the meat juices run clear. If desired, thicken cooking juices and serve over chicken and rice.
