Anita's Crockpot Lemon Chicken
One of my children's favorites. Throw everything in crockpot and forget it. Tender and delicious."This was really good. The gravy was amazing. I only used 1/4 cup lemon juice. 1/4 cup worcestershire, 1/2 stick of butter, I used chicken peices with the skin removed. Let it cook on high for 6 hours. Served it with small red potatoes and carrots. I didn take the chicken out carefully because it falls off the bone. I added 1 tbsp of flour with a little cold water and whisk it in the crockpot to make the gravy. Then added the chicken back in and spooned the gravy over it. Husband liked it, will make again. Good idea to read the other reviews for ideas." - guitarmom

Anita's Crockpot Lemon Chicken Preparation
Use 4-6 large chicken breasts or mixed chicken pieces - bone-in or out.
Put chicken in crockpot and Add 1+ cups of Lemon Juice mixed with 1/2 cup of Worcestershire Sauce. (I use RealLemon Brand lemon juice). If I have fresh lemons, I use the juice squeezed from 6 of them, which comes out to be about 1 cup, plus maybe 1/4 or so more, depending on your lemons.
Put the stick of butter on top of all.
Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt and some pepper on chicken.
Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or Low 10 hours.
This makes a wonderful lemon sauce that is great on rice or mashed
potatoes. The sauce is thin but it is still delicious. I've never tried thickening the sauce, but I don't imagine it would be difficult to achieve with a little flour the last hour or so of cooking.
This can also be made in the oven -- Cook in 275 degree oven for about 2.5+ hours and baste with the lemon sauce from the pan frequently -- about every 30 minutes.
Tender and delicious. My girls request this often.
