So I love my crockpot as a previous post once stated. Last time I cooked in it I was too afraid to venture out from the goodness of what I typically make. However, I’ve been eyeing the recipe for the crockpot lemon chicken and knew it needed to be made. The recipe was simple and it came out delicious…even Chad enjoyed it! There are only a few ingredients but the ingredients combined makes the meal extremely flavorful. The recipe said to cook over rice (which I think would have been amazing) or egg noodles (which I didn’t have) so I made it with rotini pasta. It made enough so that Chad and I could have left overs the next day at work and it tasted just as good as a reheat. I added more chicken broth then the recipe called for but it was like a sauce and we got much more flavor then if I had followed the directions and used 1/4 cup of chicken broth. This recipe will definitely make its way into the rotation of meals we make in the crockpot!
