CP Lemon Pepper Chicken

The Inspiration:
Crock Pot Lemon Pepper Chicken
- So I pinned this a while back and now the website does not work... So I just went with the info on the post and made it work :D

The Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 packet of Italian dressing seasoning
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • Lemon juice
  • Pepper
  • Chicken stock

The Directions:
  • Place butter on the bottom of the crock pot
  • Put chicken on top
  • Mix Italian seasoning and about 1/4 cup of chicken broth together, then pour over chicken
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of lemon juice over the chicken
  • Sprinkle pepper to cover the top
  • Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours

The Verdict:
*I did not measure the amount of chicken stock or lemon juice I put in the crock pot since I was just using what I had left.
*This was SUPER yummy.

PLEASE let me know if you have an actual recipe that you follow or any suggestions for this... Not saying I would change it but I like to have precise instructions!

Here's how mine turned out:

CP Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

The Inspiration:

Six Sister's Stuff

The Ingredients:
  • 4-6 Boneless Chicken Breasts*
  • 1 bottle of BBQ sauce*
  • 1 20-oz can of Pineapple Chunks, drained*

The Directions:
  • Spray the inside of the crock pot with cooking spray
  • Place chicken breasts in the crock pot
  • Cover with sauce
  • Empty drained can of pineapple chunks on top
  • Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or LOW for 4-6 hours
  • Shred chicken in crock pot & serve over rice*

The Verdict:
*The original post says you can use frozen chicken breasts
*I used a bottle of honey BBQ sauce that was on sale for $1 at Target
*I forgot to drain the pineapple chunks but it didn't seem to affect the outcome
*I cooked my unfrozen, cut up chicken in the crock pot for 2 hours and it was not done. I would say at least 3 hours on HIGH or go for the gold and do it on LOW as long as possible.
*I served mine over a bag of wild rice with baked beans
*BIG HIT & the leftovers were amazing!!!
