Directions

1. To make this crockpot chicken recipe:  Place chicken thighs at the bottom of your slow cooker. Combine 1/3 cup chicken broth, lemon juice, and zest, and pour over chicken thighs. In a small bowl, combine Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, crushed red chili pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the spice mix over the chicken thighs. Top with fresh minced garlic and diced butter.

2. Cover the crockpot and cook the chicken for 3-4 hours on HIGH or 6-8 hours on LOW.

3. Sprinkle your crockpot chicken dinner with chopped parsley and garnish with lemon slices. Serve hot with cauliflower rice, spiralized zucchini noodles, rice, pasta or quinoa. Enjoy!

Recipe tips for the crockpot chicken

  • Try cooking the chicken over a bed of chunky cauliflower florets. This instantly turns the crockpot chicken recipe into a one-pot dinner, and the cauliflower side is packed with flavor since it will soak up the fat and juices from the chicken. If you’re not on a keto or low carb diet, cook the crockpot chicken over a bed of baby or new potatoes instead.
  • If you want to give your crockpot chicken dinner a zesty touch to brighten the flavor, add a dash of fresh lemon juice at the end of cooking.
  • Make sure to use skinless chicken thighs. Chicken skin contains fat that will make the crockpot dish too greasy, especially when we use butter in the sauce.
  • Shredding chicken meat is also a great option. Simply remove the cooked chicken thighs from the crockpot and shred on a cutting board after removing the bone. Add chicken back to the crockpot and mix with the sauce to combine and reheat quickly before serving the crockpot chicken.
