Lemon Over Chicken

Lemon Over Chicken

4 skinless, boneless, chicken breasts
1 lemon, halved
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika

In slow cooker, place chicken. Squeeze half of lemon over chicken. Sprinkle lemon pepper and paprika over chicken. Slice remaining lemon and arrange over chicken. Cover. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours. Makes 4 servings.
I love using my slow cooker!  Especially when the recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare, like this one does.  This recipe is from my newest book, BUSY WOMAN'S SLOW COOKER COOKBOOK.
The chicken is tender and juicy, with a delicious tang from the lemon.  It is low in fat and calories.  Whether you are trying to lose a little weight or not, I know you will enjoy this recipe!

  1. I love lemon & really like the sourness on food. I've not tried cooking with slow cooker but I'm sure it tastes good.

  2. I've made something similar to this before, but not in the slow cooker! I'll definitely be trying this one! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Yum! It sounds delicious, Linda! Lemon is perfect for chicken so this is another great slow cooker recipe to try.

  4. I love Lemon chicken (actually I just love lemon everything) and this sounds delicious! I love that you are using actual lemon slices in this recipe. Thanks for posting a low fat entree!

  5. Linda this look really delicious, I love it! gloria

  6. Looks so good, and my lemons are ready to pick from my tree. Perfect!

  7. Blackswan, if you try cooking in a slow cooker, you will be hooked. You can put your whole meal in it, go to work or whatever else you have to do that day, and come home to a delicious meal waiting for you!

    Jenn, this recipe was one I originally put in the oven. I tried it in the slow cooker, and now that is the only way I fix it.

    Pam, I love lemon with chicken too!

    Ashley-What Does a Songbird Sing?, I think you and Robbie would like this recipe.

    Thanks Gloria!

    Lyndsey, you are so lucky to have a lemon tree! I bet you have a lot of great recipes using lemons.

  8. That sounds good! And easy!

    I invented a tangy baked fish recipe today just because I didn't want to go to the store. lol

  9. David, are you going to post the recipe on your blog?

  10. I love the slow cooker too. I just bought one for my son's girlfriend who is living alone for the first time. I'll definitely share this recipe with her.

  17. I like the tang this recipe would have. Do you have one of those crock pots that have a sear mode? I could go for one of those to replace the other two we have.
