Thanks for all of the great recipes. You’ve made me fall in love with my crock­pot all over again. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that you have a nutri­tion label for each recipe. I’m won­der­ing if you could pos­si­bly incor­po­rate the num­ber of serv­ings into the nutri­tion labels? They are list­ed at the top of the web page for each recipe, but when I go to the print-friend­ly ver­sion it isn’t on there. I’m try­ing to fol­low a healthy eat­ing pro­gram (WW) and it would real­ly help to have the num­ber of serv­ings per recipe on the print-friend­ly ver­sion. Thanks so… Read more »

Rins­ing chick­en is a great way to spread sal­mo­nel­la and oth­er bac­te­ria through your kitchen via splash­ing. Skip that step and just make sure the chick­en is thor­ough­ly cooked before eat­ing.

Re: Leah’s com­ment-While you are of course right that splash­ing while rins­ing raw chick­en can very quick­ly spread sal­mo­nel­la and oth­er bac­te­ria around onto every­thing, I would NEVER skip this step-just wouldn’t feel right about it. How­ev­er, it is VERY impor­tant to be vig­i­lant in your food han­dling. I don’t blast the water so there’s a lot of splash­ing and I don’t let any­thing come in con­tact with raw meat. Don’t ever cut raw meat on a porous cut­ting board like wood or use the same sur­face to cut veg­eta­bles and oth­er things. Don’t touch the faucet, scrub pads, etc.… Read more »

If “splash­ing bac­te­ria all over your kitchen” is a con­cern may I sug­gest not rins­ing your chick­en with a fire hose?

Is the chick­en bone­less or bone-in?

For­give my igno­rance, but why is this 440 calo­ries a serv­ing? I fig­ure it out to be around 250…

Hi! I was won­der­ing if frozen chick­en can be used? Fresh chick­en always comes out too dry when I make it.

Elizabeth

How do you get the chick­en browned as it appears in the pic­ture? That nev­er hap­pens when I do chick­en in the crock pot… Thanks!

PS With so much lemon pep­per, does adding the addi­tion­al black pep­per make this very spicy? I’ve got kids who don’t like things too spicy.

Can I use just 1 lb of chick­en? Didn’t know if that was too small for a crock­pot to cook prop­er­ly. I think. My crock pot
Is 4.5–5 qt (it’s not the largest size) Thanks!

I don’t have any lemon juice in my pantry. If I swap it for lime juice would that be weird?

I have this in my crock pot right now. It smells absolute­ly deli­cious. We love lemon pep­per and eat chick­en more often than any­thing else… Don’t know why we hadn’t thought of it before this recipe! Thank you so much!

Kate­lynn, I agree, the smell is awe­some. How did it taste?

Looks and sounds VERY GOOD!!
*(Butttttttt you need to put pin but­tons close to/by the pic­ture or arti­cles.. so we don’t have to hunt down, look thru your pin­ter­est page to find it.)
PLEASE and THANK~YOU!!
~~~>I’d pin every time you post if you did.. Your stuff is yum­m­m­my!!

I cook nour­sh­ing meals every day for me and my hus­band and I just know we would love this recipe. I have enjoyed cook­ing all my life basi­cal­ly. I am 69 years old now and when our family’s are here I real­ly go all out and make all their favorite dish­es..

My gar­lic turned green, sup­pos­ed­ly it is not that uncom­mon and is due to a chem­i­cal reac­tion that can occur when com­bin­ing fresh gar­lic with acidic things like lemon juice.

http://extension.psu.edu/food/preservation/news/2012/garlic-turns-blue

I will scrape it off when the breasts are fin­ished cook­ing but next time to be safe I’ll sautee the gar­lic a lit­tle first or use gar­lic pow­der.

hi there — I see (from your pic­ture) that you show bone­less skin­less chick­en breasts (which is what i would use)…
Even at an 8 oz. por­tion — how could that pos­si­bly be SEVENTEEN grams of FAT??
Am I miss­ing some­thing? I don’t see any oth­er fat added to the pro­tein here…
thanks!

Hi this is prob­a­bly a dumb ques­tion, but the chick­en should be thawed not frozen right? I’m ask­ing because I have seen crock pot recipes that call for frozen chick­en. Thanks.

Don’t rinse chick­en first, it actu­al­ly can cause bac­te­ria to grow. This was just on the news to let peo­ple know not to rinse the meat before cook­ing because it caus­es the bac­te­ria to spread.

I just put the recipe in my crock­pot, how­ev­er my crock­pot is a 7quart, and it’s only about a 1/4 full.…is this okay???

So all oth­er crock­pot recipes have a lot if liq­uid. This seems like it bar­ley cov­ers chick­en? Is that true? Will it cre­ate a lot of juice? I am just con­cerned 1/4 cup liq­uid is just not a lot. Just mak­ing sure

Lisa
Guest

I am won­der­ing the same thing. With the liq­uid bare­ly cov­er­ing is the chick­en going to burn or dry out?

Penny

I was won­der­ing if u can sub gar­lic pow­der for the cloves.

I looked the chick­en, but found that it had no lemon fla­vor. I’ve thought about try­ing out again and actu­al­ly putting in cut lemons in for the whole com­ing time to enhance the lemon fla­vor. Any oth­er ideas on get­ting more lemon fla­vor?
