Sooooo delicious, I love that zippy tang from the lemon. I kept exactly to the ingredients with one adjustment, I doubled the oregano. I pounded the chicken first and I cooked it in the oven for about forty mins, (I don't have a slow cooker). Had it with broccoli and basmati rice. Thanks, this will be a regular!!

Outstanding! I made this for dinner tonight, and was rushed so I too made it in the oven rather than in the crockpot (30 mins covered at 325F, then remove cover, baste, and 10 more mins uncovered). I used 3 garlic cloves and about 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice. The flavour was excellent, tangy and garlicky, and the chicken was very tender and moist. It was quite straightforward to prepare and I will definitely make this for my family again; they loved it.

Easy preparation and wonderful flavor. I used a cut up fryer instead of only chicken breasts and it turned out great. I also cooked it in the oven, covered for 40 minutes and uncovered the last 10-15 minutes. Used more garlic than called for because the garlic cloves were small and we just like garlic. I served it with roasted potatoes and steamed asparagus. A delicious meal we will have again.

This was great. I too added my own spin. I season salted and peppered both sides of the chicken then placed in an olive oiled glass baking dish, Then I melted the butter and added the parsley, garlic, lemon and water and poored it on top. I am not an oregano fan so I skipped it. Baked at 325 covered for 30 then uncovered for 10. Super simple. Delicious and tender. There was plenty of sauce, I may even cut it down to 1 T of butter next time. Very nice.

Turned out great! We loved the sauce, which I thickened up with a slurry of cornstarch. I had thought it may be too lemony so reduced the lemon by a 1/2 Tablespoon, but it would have been fine with the 3 Tbsp. Next time I make it, I will use the full amount of lemon juice. Thanks for a yummy and simple recipe.

This recipe is so easy and every time I make it I hear, "This is the BEST chicken I've ever had." So moist and flavorful, it's perfect for every day dining or as the protein to a special meal.

A slow cooker recipe with a difference -- I had come to the conclusion slow cooker recipes meant a stew like dinner. I was concerned at the start when there was not a lot of liquid in the pot. Still, I went ahead. The result is terrific!!! Tasty chicken and a light 'jus' in the bottom of the pot. All who had lunch with us today enjoyed the dish. I will change nothing next time we make this one.
