Chicken Breasts With Lemon and Fresh Rosemary (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by KerfuffleUponWincle

Recipe is from my new Hamilton Beach 3 in One Slow Cooker. ---- NOTE: Recipe is for the 2-quart cooker; for larger pots, please double the recipe! ---------------- Per Chef BuggsyMate's review, I've reduced the paprika amount from 2-3 tablespoons smoked paprika to 1 tablespoon! If you want your chicken extra smokey, please use more --

I used boneless, skinless chicken breast. It is quite amazing how much sauce/juice was generated in the crockpot; the lemony flavour was great and we used the sauce to spoon over a side serving of rice.I would recommend to reduce the cooking time to 2-2.5 hours if using boneless chicken.
