Crock Pot Lemon-Rosemary Chicken

Total Time
Prep 3 hrs
Cook 8 hrs

This easy recipe requires a little prep time but is well worth it with tender, juicy chicken breasts.


  1. In a large food storage bag, place lemon juice, oil, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Add chicken. Close bag and marinate in refrigerator 3 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Place chicken in the slow cooker and pour marinade over.
  3. Cover and cook for 6 to 8 hours, or until tender, basting occasionally with the marinade, if possible.
  4. You may add frozen broccoli and carrots about 1 to 1 1/2 hours before done.

It was pretty good, I didn't have the time to marinade for the 3-4 hours because I wanted it for dinner the same night, I only marinaded it for about half an hour. Chicken still came out nice and juicy. I used fresh rosemary since I had it on hand and garlic powder because I was being lazy. The only thing for us is we thought it was a bit too lemony. Next time I will use 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1/4 water to dilute. I added a photo of mine since there isn't one.

Really enjoyed this one. Added fresh rosemary instead of dried and also added red potatoes, onion, and carrots. Got rave reviews. Thank you!
