Crockpot Lemon Garlic Chicken & Potatoes

I'm a one-pot dinner kinda girl, but you knew that already right? :) When I spotted a recipe for a Lemon Garlic Chicken dish in my Fix-It And Forget-It Cookbook, it sounded like a real winner. Well after a good bit of "tweaking" on my part. Sometimes my tweaking works out great and sometimes... well... not so much. This Lemon Garlic Chicken? TOTALLY worked!! The absolute best part of this dinner (besides the AWESOME lemon garlic flavor) is that you don't even need to think of a side, the potatoes cook right along with the chicken. Score one for you, mama! 

Crockpot Lemon Garlic Chicken & Potatoes
adapted from Fix-It And Forget-It Cookbook*

1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used 3, but they were HUGE)
2/3 cup chicken broth
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 small potatoes, quartered

Place quartered potatoes in bottom of Crock-Pot*. Top potatoes with chicken breasts. Rub oregano, seasoned salt, pepper, and garlic into chicken. Pour broth and lemon juice over chicken and potatoes. Cook on low 6 hours or on high 3 hours. 

After plating chicken and potatoes, spoon extra garlic-lemon broth over both. The flavor of the broth is outstanding!

  8. Looks yum! Pinned it and am now following on twitter!

  9. Did the long cooking time blunt the taste of the garlic? If so, then too bad... I love strong, pungent garlic!

  11. Thanks for sharing!!! This is a feature on my Flaunt It Friday link party!! :)



  12. I bet those were so good! I think I may have that cookbook, but I must've overlooked this recipe.

    You were one of the most clicked recipes from last week's Tasty Thursday: http://fantasticalsharingofrecipes.blogspot.com/2012/10/tasty-treasures.html

  13. Yum. I hate using more than one pot...maybe I am practical but maybe its a character flaw. Regardless, this recipe makes me so happy!

  14. do you think this could work well w/fresh broccoli on the bottom instead of potatoes? how about green beans?

  15. Kim, I've not had success cooking broccoli or green beans in the Crockpot, they get really watery and mushy. I would cook the chicken in the Crockpot, steam/cook the broccoli or green beans, and then toss them in the finished sauce. Let me know how it turns out!

  16. Made this the other night, it was amazing! The whole family cleaned every last bit out of the crock pot. I'll be featuring it on my blog next week too. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Just found your site and I'm going to use this recipe tonight. Thanks for sharing!
