Slow Cooked Lemon Garlic Chicken
Flavorful slow-cooked Chicken that can also be served over Pasta with a thickened sauce.
"I had to make this recipe quickly. I didn't have time to use a slow cooker. I brined the chicken breasts, then fried them in a pan of butter on both sides for about 3 min. each side. Added the chicken to a baking dish and poured in chicken broth, lemon juice, garlic and oregano which I had boiled on the stove. I baked the breasts at 350 degrees until they reached 165 degrees . The chicken was moist and flavorful. My wife loved the disk. Hopefully I will try this in a slow cooker next time."- bobalong725

Slow Cooked Lemon Garlic Chicken Preparation
In a Bowl, mix Oregano, Salt and Pepper. Rub the mixture into Chicken. Melt Butter in skillet over Med. heat. Brown Chicken in Butter for 3 to 5 min. on each side. Place browned-chicken in slow-cooker.
In same skillet, mix Water, Lemon Juice, Garlic and Bouillon. Bring mixture to a Boil and then pour it over the Chicken in slow-cooker.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours --OR-- LOW for 6 hours (if you want to leave it to cook all day).
Add Parsley to the slow-cooker 15-30 min. before end of cook time.
Boil up some of your favorite pasta and put the chicken and sauce over top of it. If you want more sauce, double up the sauce ingredients above and thicken it after the chicken has finished in the slow-cooker. Be careful not to break the sauce by heating it too quickly or to too high a temperature. You can use Cream, Cornstarch or Flour to thicken the sauce, whichever you prefer. If thickening with Cornstarch or Flour, make a slurry by mixing it with water first. Do not use too much water for the slurry, as excess water will thin out your sauce instead of thickening.
