Top-ranked recipe named "Anita's Crockpot Lemon Chicken"
One of my children's favorites. Throw everything in crockpot and forget it. Tender and delicious.
"I made it again tonight. This time I didn't use any broth. I used 1/3 cup of lemon juice & 2/3 cup of water. Everything else was the same, except I browned the meat first, added 3 generous spoons of minced garlice, & generously applied garlic salt & black pepper. It turned out amazing and tasted good with mashed potatoes. I also thickened the sauce towards the end by adding a little bit of flour. "- mkhan
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.

OZCat 10 months agoVery juicy. My lemon sauce was very good and very tart. So, I added 1/2 tablespoon of milder jalapeño green Tabasco sauce. I ended up with a hot and sour lemon sauce. Perfect!
Stacey65 1 year agoThe flavor was good but the chicken was very very dry!
EpicEats 1 year agoflavor was great but timing to cook was more than needed. I used thick breasts and they were a little overcooked. will try again with less cooking time. I thickened the broth with a little cornstarch and made gravy for asparagus and taters on the side. fabulous!

lisamilesbarrick 2 years agoMade it just like the recipe said. It was horrible, too lemony.
mommyx307 2 years agoI over cooked the chicken in the crock pot but the flavor was great. I thickened the sauce in a pan with cornstarch which made a phenomenal gravy!
