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!


  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 ounces linguine noodles or thin spaghetti noodles
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • juice of 1 lemon about 4 tablespoons
  • 1/4 cup capers


  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!
