Crock Pot Lemon Chicken...

This is a delicious and easy chicken meal - and it only takes FOUR ingredients that you put in a crock pot or slow coocker.  What makes it an especially great recipe is I can get the chicken started cooking before I go to pre-school (or it can be done before you go to work) and it is ready to eat by dinner time.

  • 2 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 packet Good Seasons Italian dressing
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless, chicken breasts

  1. Put butter or margarine in bottom of slow cooker.
  2. Place chicken in pot.
  3. Sprinkle Italian dressing packet over chicken.  Drizzle with lemon juice.  Put on lid.
  4. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or Low for 6-8 hours.

Put 2 tablespoons of butter in the slow cooker.  (Sometimes a recipe will say to use a cube of butter .  When you cut 2 tablespoons from a stick of butter it is the shape of a cube).

Place the chicken in the the slow cooker.  Be careful, after melting the butter the slow cooker is hot.

Sprinkle the Italian dressing packet over the chicken.  You want to get some of the seasoning on each piece of chicken.

Measure 1/2 cup of lemon juice and gently pour that over the chicken.

Put the lid on your slow cooker and you are done.  Let it cook on High for 4-5 hours or Low for 6-8 hours.

At suppertime, here is what the chicken looks like.  It makes one delicious, easy meal for the family
