This recipe took the number one spot of my favorite slow cooker meals. It seriously blew my mind how amazing the flavor was. Not only was it the perfect blend of spices and lemon, but I have never had more tender, melt in your mouth chicken. It filled my house with the most wonderful lemon aroma. I already want to make this again. It’s just that good!

Instructions 

  • Prepare your chicken by rinsing it and trimming the fat.  Since the chicken breasts that I buy are always huge, I cut them in half making them more like tenders.
  • In a shallow dish, combine the flour and pepper.  Coat the chicken in the flour.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan on your stovetop over medium heat.  Once melted, brown each side of the chicken, but not cooking it throughout because you will be putting them in the crockpot.  You just want them to have a nice golden brown breading on each side.
  • Spray crockpot with cooking spray and place the chicken into the crockpot.  Sprinkle the italian seasoning package top of the chicken.
  • Mix together the lemon juice and chicken broth.  Pour over the chicken and seasonings.
  • Cook on low for 3-4 hours.  Enjoy!

    1. I never use high because it cooks at a higher temp and can dry the chicken out. But if you are in a pinch you can but the chicken may not be as tender. 🙂

  1. It’s in my crockpot right now. Can’t wait to try it. I’m making some Italian roasted potatoes too.

  2. You had me at ‘lemon’ and ‘crock pot’- thanks for posting! And the idea to add potatoes sounds great, too!

  3. What can i use instead of the Italian seasoning packet as i do not have that here in Belgium, can i use just regular dry herbs.

    1. There are recipes on the internet for homemade Italian dressing seasoning. If you are on pinterest just search for italian dressing and several will come up. Usually you will use 2 T of a homemade mix to make the dressing and that is what I would use as a substitute for the packet.

    1. it’s usually just one, depending on the size and how you juice it. I’d get 2 just in case though
