what you'll need

  • 14.5 oz can low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice about 1 lemon
  • 5 - 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tsp chicken bouillon
  • 2 - 2 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • salt and pepper
  • wedges lemon for serving

let's do it

  • Combine chicken broth, lemon juice, minced garlic, oregano and chicken bouillon in slow cooker then stir to dissolve bouillon. Once bouillon has dissolved, add chicken and butter.
  • Cover and cook on low for 2 hours or just until chicken is cooked through and tender. Overcooking chicken breasts will result in them becoming dry.
  • Remove chicken from slow cooker, dice, slice or leave breasts whole then transfer to a serving dish.
  • Stir together cornstarch and water in a medium saucepan. Add the liquid from the slow cooker to the saucepan. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, whisking continuously. Once sauce comes to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. Add a few drops of fresh lemon juice for a little more zing or a pinch of sugar if it’s a bit too tart. Pour sauce over chicken, garnish with fresh chopped parsley then serve over rice or pasta with a lemon wedge on the side.

One Last Thing

If you like a perfect presentation with nicely-browned chicken breasts, you can brown them in the butter on the stove top and then add them to the slow cooker.
