This recipe for Slow Cooker Lemon Pepper Chicken lets you get a tasty, nutritious, and affordable dinner on the table with minimal effort!
The first time I ever made a roasted chicken was in the slow cooker and this was probably 10 years ago. I remember that my mom came over to show me the steps and, well, maybe provide a little moral support with a good hearty shake at teasing, too.
At the time, I had just started this food blog and learning how to roast a chicken was one of the ways in which I hoped to learn to grow. I mean, you can do a lot with a whole chicken if you know what you’re doing, like making soups, grilling – looking at you beer can chicken! – smothering them with delicious rubs, using them to make other meals (or…you can just do I do and buy a whole rotisserie chicken from Costco), or in this case, use the whole chicken for one particular meal.
But in all of the years that I’ve been roasting a chicken for my family, I’ve only ever cooked it in the slow cooker that one time. Why? I don’t really know. I guess part of me thinks that there is something sort of special about roasting a chicken in the oven with a bunch of veggies and potatoes. As nice and delicious as that sounds and is, it is a bit more work and to be honest, right now in my current season of life, using the slow cooker meets my needs a little better than a roasting pan.
Any other moms feel me on this?…
