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.

    This was seriously SO good! I added more lemon zest and lemon juice (cause we love lemon) and browned the thighs before adding to crock pot. The red pepper flakes gave it a nice warm flavour. Big hit!! Thank you!

    This was delicious! I cooked this in my cast iron skillet instead of crock pot and used breat meat sliced. Added all the seasoning with the raw chicken and seared in skillet. Added an onion, didn't have onion powder and garlic. Then the liquids and simmered until done. Probably used 1 cup of chick broth. Very tasty,will make again.

    Oh my. This was so good! I made it tonight for the first time and I say first time because I will definitely make it again. The only thing I did different was after mixing the herbs together, I put them directly on the chicken thighs and let them sit overnight. My house smelled sooo good all day while it was cooking. Thank you for sharing!

    If I use the thighs with bone and skin, will the skin come out good?

    It tasted amazing! Highly Recommend it. I made this recipe with chicken breast and I seared the chicken before, next I followed the recipe.

    This recipe was sooooo yummy! I served it over cauliflower rice and the juices that come from it are so tasty, I used chicken thighs with skin on and bone in and the cauliflower rice was stir fry from costco but I ate like 4 out of the 7 or 8 peices that I made. I'm making it tomorrow and I'm so excited
