Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken Piccata

Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken Piccata is creamy lemony sauce-coated noodles with juicy lightly breaded chicken with a hint of garlic, all topped with savory capers!


Hey guys it’s Tiffany from Creme de la Crumb!! Are you enjoying spring? It’s been pretty wet and dreary around here. We got a couple weeks at the beginning of March with gorgeous sunny 70 degree weather and then it evaporated into April showers. I’ll take it over the snow any day though! And rain or shine, a good crockpot dinner is always a good idea.

This slow cooker lemon chicken piccata is one of my family’s favorites! Creamy lemony sauce-coated noodles (linguine or spaghetti – take our pick!) with juicy lightly breaded chicken with a hint of garlic, all topped with savory capers! This dish is so easy to make, and even the noodles are cooked in the crockpot!  Your family will fall in love with this delicious dinner!

Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 6 ounces linguine noodles or thin spaghetti noodles

  1. Whisk together flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Dredge chicken in the flour mixture to coat on both sides.
  2. Drizzle a large skillet with oil, cook chicken over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes on each side to brown (it won't be cooked through.)
  3. Grease a slow cooker, place chicken in a single layer in the slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover.
  4. Add linguine to slow cooker, pour chicken broth over the top, cover and cook on high for 15 minutes. Uncover, stir in lemon juice, heavy cream, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook another 10 minutes on high. Add chicken back to slow cooker until hot throughout.
  5. Serve hot additional lemon slices and fresh thyme if desired. Enjoy!

    This sounds so good, I love a dish with lemon and capers and I thought I would try this out tonight. The chicken has been in the cooker for a few hours and Im getting everything else ready for it now and I didnt see where it said to add the capers?

    • Alyssa says:

      When you are ready to serve, add the capers over top, and ENJOY! Thanks so much for following along with me! 🙂

  3. Do you have the nutritional info?

    • At this time I do not have any nutritional information on my recipes. I do recommend using or an app similar to that and it will direct you to the information that you are seeking. Hope that helps!

      Your Recipe Critic,

  4. I have a silly question. Was I supposed to cook the noodles before putting them in the crock pot?

    • It does seem as though they do need to be cooked ahead of time; however, this recipe cooks the noodles in the crockpot! It is AMAZING! I just love it! Throw it ALL in and let the crockpot do the work! Hope that helps!

  5. My noodles have been in there for well over 30 minutes and they are still not cooked. 🙁
