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.

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!

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.

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

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

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?
