Crock Pot Lemon Chicken

It has been a few weeks since I shared a recipe for my Crock Pot Favorites Series. I had not planned on taking a break, but a kitchen remodel, a quick trip to Oregon, and life in general got in the way. I know this means I might not make it to over 50 recipes this year, but I can still get close. And hopefully we will not have any more breaks.

Today I am excited to be back sharing a simple crock pot chicken.

Several years ago I shared how I cook a whole chicken in the crock pot. It is so simple and is one of my favorite ways to cook chicken.

I recently got whole chicken on sale for a really good price. I bought a couple of them and decided that I wanted to cook them in the crock pot, but I wanted to flavor them up a little more than normal.

I have made lemon chicken in the oven many times, so I decided to take that same basic idea and cook it in the crock pot. It worked great. A few simple ingredients added so much flavor.

And I know a whole chicken cooked in the crock pot is not pretty, but it is really moist and delicious. Oh so very good!

    You are right! It sure ain’t pretty! But it sure is good! I love chicken in the crockpot! I sometimes use pieces though. Lemon sounds good. I have done lemon pepper, but not fresh lemon. I will have to try that. Btw, try adding 1/4 cup onion powder to Paula’s House seasoning! It is definately my go to spice for just about everything! You are making me hungry!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I am wondering if you have ever put the butter seasoning mixture under the skin? I do that with my Thanksgiving turkey….does this crockpot lemon chicken make much juice? That is one of the reasons I do NOT like to do chickens in the crockpot as it always seemed they sat in juice while they were finishing up. While it isn’t real pretty as long as it tastes good that would be great…also could probably stick under a broiler if wanted. Thanks for your help!

    • Yes, I do put it under the skin sometimes as well. It works great that way also. Crock pot chicken does make more juice, which is why it is not as pretty, but I think all that juice is also what helps make it so tender and is part of why my family likes it so much. The broiler trick would help the outside crisp up some.
